What’s Wrong With The Green New Deal?

After years of stasis, there is finally movement in the public’s attitude about climate change. Much of the media attention has focused on the Green New Deal, sponsored by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Senator, Edward Markey. In addition, recent polling by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication has shown a rise over the past 5 years in the number of Americans who believe it’s happening (+11%), are worried about it (+16%), think it’s caused by humans (+15%) and that it’s important to them personally (+17).
