Description

An engaging conversation with our most respected public intellectual around how a global Green New Deal has the potential to save humanity and the planet

The environmental crisis under way is unique in human history. It is a true existential crisis. Those alive today will decide the fate of humanity. Meanwhile, the leaders of the most powerful state in human history are dedicating themselves with passion to destroying the prospects for organized human life. At the same time, there is a solution at hand, which is the Green New Deal. 

Putting meat on the bones of the Green New Deal starts with a single simple idea: We have to absolutely stop burning fossil fuels to produce energy within the next 30 years at most; and we have to do this in a way that also supports rising living standards and expanding opportunities for working people and the poor throughout the world. This version of a Green New Deal program is, in fact, entirely realistic in terms of its purely economic and technical features. The real question is whether it is politically feasible. 

Chomsky and Pollin examine how we can build the political force to make a global Green New Deal a reality.

Excellent Outline of Plan to Tackle Climate Change

This book proposes a global plan to tackle the climate change targets set by the IPCC (global net zero emissions by 2050). The plan laid out by the authors provides reasonable guidelines for an egalitarian transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. This book is not an introductory book on climate change. It assumes the basic knowledge and understanding that climate change is due to human greenhouse gas emission, and is an imminent danger to the environment and human civilization. The book focuses on a realistic and applicable solution to climate change. I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about the environment and wants to have a better understanding of policy changes we can make to help us tackle the significant problems we face.
