With the 2018 election and the prospect of 2020, people are electing more climate realists over fossil fuel apologists. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, newly elected progressive congresswomen, and Bernie Sanders, the most popular politician and likely presidential candidate, have proposed a Green New Deal. This plan would put the government’s economic resources behind a move to renewable energy ending fossil fuel dominance. With the recent IPCC report predicting that the earth will reach critical thresholds as early as 2030, there’s not a moment to waste.

For too long the energy and agricultural industries have successfully evaded regulation while dumping their externalities on the public commons. We must reverse that. Both the Green New Deal and the New Food Deal can reorient the basics and put Americans, our democracy and the earth on the path to health.

The Green Party's political platform since 2012. That fact will not be mentioned by the plastic green Reich. "Time for a Green new Deal now."

Not before? Now.

I don't trust any Democrats to do the right thing, ever.

Ideas get passed around and shared. Look at what Bernie has added to the dialogue and the platforms.

One Big Problem with the Green Deal - foreign policy and Russophobia and preparing for war with China.

Building out renewables will require lots of rare earth metals which come from China, Russia and Brazil. Opening mines will require many years of investment and acceptance of environmental compromise.

This issue is loaded with unintended consequences.
