The green new deal is exactly the thing for which America has been waiting. A jobs guarantee program that could also save human life on Earth? Sounds great! Look we're ruining this planet. My grandchildren will die in the burning ashes of what's left of our forests. Or maybe they will drown from rising tides and hurricanes. That is of course, unless we take some drastic action. Might as well tie that action to helping our current stagnant wage crisis too, right? A new version of FDR's safety net? Could be nice. Nice and green.
