Have the grown-ups killed the Green New Deal?

By | March 27, 2019

Yesterday, the United States Senate rejected the Green New Deal. The measure, a non-binding resolution containing ambitious goals but no specific policies, is down but not out. With kids striking for climate action and intense discussion finally happening over solutions, 2019 may be the year the US finally comes to terms with climate change.

Here are the pros and cons of an historic effort for climate action in the US:
