Climate change and socioeconomic inequality are the root causes for a lot of the underlying conditions like increasing coastal area destruction, poverty, in not just this nation but the world.
It is about time for this nation to step up and show to the world that we are not just a nation with big ego where our policies are dictated by the fossil fuel industries.
We need to show that our leadership is committed to real change by actually doing: by enacting strict policies for ending greenhouse emissions from every sector and by ensuring that all the workforce gets the appropriate training through free education and resources to take part in that change.
This green new deal is one of the only policies from congress in the recent past that shows our leadership’s focus to ensure a future for not just this nation, but our planet and its inhabitants.
That said, I whole heartedly support it.
