Green New Deal

"The Green New Deal is a four part program for moving America quickly out of crisis into a secure, sustainable future.

All economics is about the home. No, not your private residence, obviously. Economics is about our common home — Mother Earth.

Maybe that's why Pope Francis subtitled his 2015 encyclical "On Care for Our Common Home."
