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:

thank you for this. it really broke it down in a simply to understand way.
which makes it even more appalling to hear people attack it.
this is about human evolution....
can we evolve past egoic selfishness and greed to a place of egalitarianism and peace?
innovation will not stop. to the contrary, it will blossom while looking for solutions to our worst mess ups.
this plan sounds like an awesome first step to me....
you have to acknowledge a problem before you can even think about solving it.

The Americans that will be most vulnerable to this authoritarianism will be Americas poorest, good thing the Democrats run the most impoverished counties in this nation. They would have jurisdiction over thousands who would have no choice but to comply with less food options and forced public transportation. Are Democrats evil, or do we naturally gravitate willfully to slavery?

if you watch in the beginning the graph goes in the mid eighties that's when we had a chance it's way too late now we've changed the climate too much already we just have to deal with the effects and try to slow it down

it seems very odd to zoom in on one element fossil fuels as a cause of warming - the earth is a massive dynamic ever changing system with billions of inputs and outputs that we don't really understand

The whole point that it is a "transition" means just that. A transition. We will fail horribly if we do not transition into this. We can get to 0 emissions, but if we think that it is going to happen overnight with no recoil, we will not succeed. It doesn't matter if we have goals to help the world when it is so in need of our help if we are stepping over the dead bodies of our population to do it. Look at China's environmental policy, look how it is failing. We cannot do that to ourselves in the pursuit of even the most altruistic of goals. However, if we transition properly, we can do it!

the Green New Deal only a theorectical Band-Aid solution it will Not work ! ..the problem is far larger than burning fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions to take back the planet to a safe place ..the problem and the solution is identified in Bible based Apocalyptic Prophecies.... ..the solution cannot be of human origin must be of Divine origin ..because the underlying problem is that humanity lives in a world under Sin and Jesus Christ is preparing people for a message of His imminent Second Coming to Earth in Power and Great Glory in which the Earth will be consumed in fire and destroyed , much the same way the Earth was consumed with water and destroyed by Flood during the time of Noah ..and the only way to capture the attention of all peoples on the Earth through Emergency and Crisis ..and to have a message of solution of only Divine origin ..and that message and solution Is the message of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ ❣✝❣ ....

The proposal basically forces majority of people to abandon their source of income and put their trust in a well known corrupt government for their lives with no guarantee that climate change will change the way we want it to be. How much change does carbon affects it? Water affects climate at more than 50% while carbon affects it with just a small fraction.

This is how slavery ended. Abandon your source of income- it's wrong. It's gonna collapse sooner or later.

You can’t just stop the climate from changing because it has Been happening for millions of years. The earth get warmer and colder over periods of time.

Hey water. I want to educate you on something. I hope you'll listen. Here I go: Climate is not the same thing as TEMPERATURE. Hot and cold are temperatures. It's like when you touch ice and fire. Ice is cold. Fire is hot. Climate is something different. Climate is a pattern of weather. Climate change is when the patterns of weather start changing drastically. This is very bad. It will change the planet and the animals and plants and bugs that are important for the food chain. If bees and bugs can't pollinate our food, we will have no food. If it gets too hot, there will be no water to drink. It's very bad. Hope this changes your mind.

I feel dumber having watched this crock. So basically you want to tell people what they can and can't drive or eat or how their home should function. This is all based on speculation. The words "could result" or "could casue" isn't a factual backing. It could also not happen as much as it could happen. This honeslty seems like a hostel take over to force Americans to live as a small group of people see fit for their personal opinion and polictal agenda. Thank you for sealing my Republican vote for 2020

Hey Emily, we all live on the same planet. Should someone be able to freely pollute the ocean and destroy MY atmosphere? And if I tell them to stop, you will say "You want to tell people what they can and can't do?" Yes, as a matter of fact, I do. The earth is not yours. It is ours. We share the same water and same sky. You don't get to live in a world on your own, we need to live together.

Realistically, it is far too late to save the planet without causing (any more) negative impact. More bad will happen, but it is about DAMAGE CONTROL. We must act NOW, in order to begin transitioning the human race to a live without carbon. Even if we act NOW, irreversible damage will still happen. We must all come together for the greater good, all make sacrifices and all learn how to live in a world without emissions (and jobs that involve emissions).

Coal jobs are a prime example. There are more than ten times as many people working in renewable energy as are working in coal, and it's only going to go up. Maybe, I'm assuming here, but I figure if you're tough enough to mine coal, you're tough enough to install a solar panel.. Jus' sayin'
