Support the Green New Deal!
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) officially unveiled the #GreenNewDeal today, and it’s…badass.
It’s a massive policy package that will remake the U.S. economy and (hopefully!) eliminate all U.S. carbon emissions, while ensuring a fair & just transition for communities and workers.
Some of the important goals of the resolution:
- Building resilience against climate-related disasters
- Infrastructure repair
- Meeting 100% of our power demand through clean energy
- Removing greenhouse gases
“The resolution stakes out a 10-year national mobilization plan to build smart grids & rapidly increase the share of American power generated from solar & wind from 10% today to as close to 100% as possible over the next decade.” (HuffPost)
This is the moment we’ve been waiting for, the action we’ve been fighting for. Let’s make sure every single one of our reps is on board.
Tell your legislators: Support the #GreenNewDeal!
The Green New Deal is finally here. It provides a detailed plan for the U.S. to swiftly become carbon-neutral, while ensuring a fair & just transition for communities and workers. Tell your reps to support!
