Green New Deal
As a nation, we’ve been in peril before: World War Two, The Great Depression. The solution today is the same as it was then: a full-scale economic mobilization that puts millions of Americans to work. Climate change is an existential threat. Our solution is a Green New Deal.
The Green New Deal invests in new jobs like installing solar panels, insulating our schools, manufacturing electric cars, building new housing, retrofitting every building in America, and growing healthy food. That means millions of jobs for white, black, and brown Americans, and clean air and water for all of our communities. No one gets left behind.
Economic inequality, racial injustice, and the climate crisis are not different problems, they are part of the same problem. Unchecked corporate power got us here. The Green New Deal puts ordinary people back in charge -- not big corporations.
