What's actually in the Green New Deal?
Become a Video Lab member!
The Green New Deal is an ambitious plan to fight the effects of climate change. It’s the only American plan that actually acknowledges the size of the impending crisis. And it contains some difficult truths that we might not want to hear.
Read the Green New Deal resolution here: on a Green New Deal.pdf
For additional context I recommend this piece by Vox’s Umair Irfan on the United Nations climate report, where the world’s best climatologists tell us how urgent of a problem this is:
This piece from Vox’s David Roberts, shows that world leaders really aren’t taking this urgency seriously.
Finally, you should read this explainer of the Green New Deal, followed by this story (in list form) by Hannah Northey:
I also enjoyed this piece, from Kate Aronoff of the Intercept, that imagines a world after the Green New Deal: is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines. Check out

If you want to read about the Green New Deal in the lens of the 2020 election, I recommend this piece explaining Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s proposal: Inslee has the most ambitious climate proposals; it is, as Vox's David Roberts writes, the Green New Deal translated into policy. For more from the rest of the 2020 democratic field, check out the Vox policy guide: - Alvin

The climate problem is probably the best irl example of a perfect prisoner's dilemma problem, with three possible scenarios: First scenario: unanimous support and cooperation of the world's largest energy consumers, that means US, Russia and China will need to agree on a plan, simultaneously reducing their carbon emission. For that plan to work, all parties have to cooperate, and suffer a lot in the process. Yet the whole plan will collapse if anyone decides that "hey, while it's costing others greatly to transform their economies, why don't we double down on fossil fuels?", whoever does that will become the single biggest winner of the next century, everyone else loses. This is the second scenario. The final scenario is everyone being as selfish as possible hoping they'll be the biggest winner and everyone loses in the end, "loses", in this case, means the destruction of the human civilisation. Last point to make this spicy: for Russia, global warming and rising sea level are almost all-benefits, and they'll be the least affected by the global humanitarian disaster, both China and the US know that. Now, guess which of those scenarios will be the most likely one...?

Give it 5 more years and them old geezers' head will be impaled on poles along with oil burning tanks and our defeated attempt to make this a better place. Money is winning, and we are coming to an almost certain doom. What are we to do? Start our own change with our own source of energy and reduce carbon emission? I don't know and it scares me.

Also Vox here's a tip: when you're trying to establish credibility for a perspective/opinion piece, MAYBE not use your own staff as interview subjects. Try and find scientists and lawyers and other experts, not the guy next to you in the cubicle. And interview THE OTHER SIDE. AOC wants rent control yet the GND demands all buildings meet new green standards, which could cost landlords millions in renovation. So they'll spend millions to meet AOCs standards but also not be allowed to recuperate those expenses. Good luck with that.

"The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti then asked. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” -Saikat Charbarti, Chief of Staff, Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

Climate change is reversible with technological advancements. Not by killing capitalism like occasio Cortez is doing. Also production of lithium ion battery for cars isn't very efficient. It also isn't practical. Hydrogen fuel and natural gas is the future.

People are complaining that we should switch regardless of price. No, we shouldnt switch cause even with the new power source there is no one to power the nation like fossil fuel did. Sure the sun is unlimited and the wind is too but it wont work cause the country would go bankrupt and collapse. When the country collapses then there is no earth day, there no agencies to try to fix these issues. Exxon has a better plan than this and that's to capture CO2 emission and break it down inside the plant. The world runs on fossil fuel cause it is the most efficient fuel. The US alone uses too much power to use solar and wind and it would take years to switch, there is no possible way to flip to the economic safety they want without causing more issues. This green deal is a flop cause it is unrealistic. Most energy in electric cars is made by fossil fuel and you need more energy than what fossil fuel puts out.

Talk about ethnocentrism... Yep. If the U.S. stops burning fossil fuels, the world is saved... except for the rain forests which still continue to be decimated and the other 7 billion people in the world using fossil fuels. Would be better to start terra-forming Mars. Consider this... We are the virus of the Earth and this is how the Earth will get rid of us - by running a high fever.

Please give credit where credit is due. The Green New Deal was the centerpiece of Green Party nominee Jill Stein's 2012 presidential platform. I voted for her in the safe non-swing state of Louisiana that year because I thought it was a wonderful idea that the Democrats may wanna take up (the same way they took for Social Security which was lifted from Socialist Party candidate Norman Thomas' presidential campaigns from 1928 and 1932).

The cows aren't bad, the way that they're farmed are. Cows that graze require lots of land, so to increase meat production you have to increase the amount of available land. Which requires you to deforest undeveloped lands which protect biodiversity and act as carbon sinks. The other option is to force the animals to live in cramped conditions where they are fed animal feed produced from corn. Not only is this unhealthy for the cows but they live in deeply unsanitary conditions and their diets did not evolve to digest corn based feed and it does not sit well with them. Their undigested food and waste products contain high quantities of methane which is a far more potent greenhouse gas than CO2. (There are ways of harvesting this manure as a source of energy but that's beside the current point.) Meat production on the scale that we do it in developed countries is deeply flawed and it will only get worse if we continue to expand it for new markets. Until we can find alternative production methods we should decrease our individual meat consumption and try to buy local ethically sourced meats. It won't be easy to completely change but just starting to take days off and reframe your relationship with meat will lead to a healthier climate and a healthier you.

I currently live in California, being from the east coast I am all about public transportation mostly train commuting. Last week California had a "clean air day" encouraging people to take any mode of transportation other than their personal vehicle. Take the train, bus, or ride a bike which most of those methods were free on that specific day...well needless to say no one changed their ways....I feel this is just another problem that people would rather throw money at than actually change their lifestyle...

The green new deal won't "save the world". All our ships, semi trucks and trains run on fossil fuels. Factories in China that build all our stuff are powered mostly by fossil fuels. The only way to get rid of them is to find something better, my opinion that's nuclear. The climate activists claim to be on the side of science but then they don't want to use science to solve the problem. As for electric vehicles they are already gaining popularity. It's not long before they become better options then combustion powered cars and people will start buying them. Government can help but they won't even be able to make a dent, they just want to steal from you and put more regulations on your life.

This "Second Part" for me doesn't lift my worries for the Green New Deal, for it only makes me more worried. Something we've always avoided made so feasible in this one "Deal" complete and udder government control over our entire economic system. How do so many people ignore the most important part of the deal? I don't know -Do we think the government will just hand the power back to the people after all of this??? No, they wont. In fact we might not ever get our America back. -Is getting rid of cows truly necessary??? No, its not. What we don't see is that, this "Deal" just wants its greasy hands all over every part of the economy. (Some parts of this deal seem completely absurd! Their excuse for everything? Climate Change. Yes, I know your response... its a viable excuse. Whats not a viable excuse is the stench of socialism ALL over this document. -I again mention that what they are trying to do in this "second part" could be irreversible. Imagine playing Jenga with a house (A very risky thing, I might say) this deal plans this pull the foundation from right beneath the house. One rule of Jenga I know is to not try taking the three blocks from the bottom. What happens??? Complete and utter collapse. Unlike regular Jenga, Jenga with a house cant just have its foundation slipped back in. It will call for a need of complete destruction of all the house that we all live in. So their plan is to just create another house with an even the rubble of the house beneath it. Not a very "stable" plan is it. This house represents the economy of America which will completely and utterly crumble. Something that can NEVER be undone. NO Amount of money can fix this destruction of our economy. (Sad but true) -My final problem is this. If this is the "First Step", do we have the Second & Third ready to go??? This plan bestows all of our trust and power given to the government (Which would be a massive mistake on our part) and hope they know what comes next. I feel that if there is something that needs to be done... It must be done in a less extreme fashion that all people of this America and the World could agree on. Read the entire plan yourself (EVERY DETAIL) and get all your worries and questions answered. -A Random Guy hoping for something better.

I agree with you but I never went to college. The second part is actually creepy to me. Should have just said "you might loose your job, house, car and dog but dont worry, we have a job and a place to sleep for you down at the soylent green factory. All the free high quality healthcare you want.". Already 250,000 malpractice deaths per year in America, just wait til we let the surgeons know they are getting a pay cut and a tax increase.
