We have now had two Green New Deal Town Halls – May 7 and June 13th at the Rinconada Library.
A Green New Deal Resolution has been proposed in Congress by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey. The stated goal is to address climate change by creating millions of new green jobs that will decarbonize our economy. While the (old) New Deal allowed 40% of food to be grown in victory gardens, built public parks, standardized the school lunch program, created a nationwide electricity grid, and a 2nd bill of rights, the new one will be what we make it.
