The GP Green New Deal
The Ecosocialist Green New Deal is an economic justice as well as climate justice program that enacts an Economic Bill of Rights that guarantees living-wage jobs, incomes above poverty, affordable housing, quality health care, lifelong public education, and a secure retirement. It seeks to solve the climate crisis by combining quick action to get to zero greenhouse gas emissions and 100% renewable energy by 2030 along with an “Economic Bill of Rights” – the right to single-payer healthcare, a guaranteed job at a living wage, affordable housing, and free college education.
The Greens call for a World War II-scale mobilization to carry through this emergency climate program. During World War II, the federal government took over a quarter of US manufacturing capacity in order to defeat the fascist powers. The Greens call for social ownership and democratic planning in order to make a rapid coordinated transition.
EcoAction is part of the People vs. Fossil Fuels campaign and have long called for the President to declare a formal climate emergency and to issue comprehensive Executive Orders on climate action to overcome the opposition to climate action in Congress. (See climatepresident.org)
