Green Party on IPCC Report: US Must Halt Fossil Fuel Emissions, Enact a Green New Deal
The Green Party of the United States said that world leaders must interpret the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as highlighting the need to immediately halt the burning of fossil fuels.
“We need elected officials who have the political courage to immediately say no to fossil fuels, and who are willing to build a world centered on a Green New Deal (GND) that combines a rapid transition to 100% renewable energy and zero emissions within a decade, while ensuring the economic needs of all are met,” said Green Party EcoAction Co-Chair Mark Dunlea. Greens in the U.S. first campaigned for such a plan in 2010, after European Greens had proposed such an initiative a few years earlier.

Sweeping nuclear boondoggle at taxpayers expense proposed by Ohio legislators
The Green Party of Ohio opposes HB434 and supports the right of communities to know what is in their neighborhood and have a say in decisions that affect their health, safety and quality of life.
The Ohio House has passed a bill that threatens to surpass HB6 in its impact on Ohio citizens, and it won’t be confined to First Energy ratepayers.
This time we all get to pay for a dubious experiment to develop small nuclear reactors (SMRs) which are euphemistically called Advanced Nuclear Reactors by the proponents and by one corporation, eGeneration. It is a bill that gives the open wallet of Ohio taxpayers to perform research and develop SMRs (molten salt reactors) and they don’t have to actually produce anything. Have the citizens of Ohio been informed of this bill? Not that anyone has noticed.
Wisconsin Greens seek 2022 candidates

Recent polls show over 60% of US voters believe the Democratic and Republican parties are doing such a terrible job that a new major party is needed.
The time is right to build a party for the people - but we need candidates to make it happen.
