Green New Deal unveiled

The most recent scientific consensus, including the federal government’s own National Climate Assessment, indicates a very short window for a transformation to a clean-energy economy. In response, activists are calling for a Green New Deal to transform our economy in a rapid and just manner, and Senator Ed Markey and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have introduced a Green New Deal resolution to Congress.

Early support for an ambitious bill like this is crucial, and climate activists plan to send a strong message to their members of Congress in the coming weeks.

The Sunrise Movement, a group of young people credited with putting momentum behind the Green New Deal concept, has formed an Olympic Peninsula chapter, and here’s their game plan for local action this month: https://olyclimate.org/2019/02/10/gnd-local-update/
