Join the Green New Deal Coalition

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

In response to our nation's vast economic and ecological problems, Green Change has launched a campaign for a Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal is an ambitious program to create economic prosperity together with ecological sustainability.

We are building a coalition of candidates, individuals and organizations to support the Green New Deal – starting today.

Join the Green New Deal Coalition now.

Here are the ten policies you endorse by joining the Green New Deal Coalition:

1) Cut military spending at least 70%;

2) Create millions of green union jobs through massive public investment in renewable energy, mass transit and conservation;

3) Set ambitious, science-based greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, and enact a revenue-neutral carbon tax to meet them;

4) Establish single-payer “Medicare for all” health care;

5) Provide tuition-free public higher education;

6) Change trade agreements to improve labor, environmental, consumer, health and safety standards;

7) End counterproductive prohibition policies and legalize marijuana;

8) Enact tough limits on credit interest and lending rates, progressive tax reform and strict financial regulation;

9) Amend the U.S. Constitution to abolish corporate personhood; and

10) Pass sweeping electoral, campaign finance and anti-corruption reforms.

Will you help us turn these ideas into reality?

Sign up for the Green New Deal Coalition now.

The first step is to agree on these ten priorities. The next step is to push for specific policies to make them happen.

We need your help. Share your ideas about a Green New Deal on the Green Change network.

  2. There is no deal here.  This is pie in the sky that will never happen.

    Have we intitiated a Manhattan Project on renewalble energy?

    Is alternative energy being actively supressed?

    Is the energy rationing system called “Smart Grid” on the accellerated top priority chart?

    Get real, they don’t give a shit about people, just their cut of the energy ponzi scam.

  3. Thanks for the link.  In the comments section, I added:

    Refuse to vote for or contribute to any candidate who does not explicitly support a majority of these principles.

    Organize mass civil disobedience.

    Raise class consciousness.

    jeffroby (below) is right.  Consciousness and coalescence are what we need now.

  4. any longer. they definitely do not give a flying fuck about us.

    i read this article the other day and i am going to find a way to plaster every fucking surface on the planet with these…

    The next generation of solar cells will be small. About the size of lint. But the anticipated impact: That’s huge.

    Some of these emerging electricity-generating cells could be embedded in windows without obscuring the view. Engineers envision incorporating slightly larger ones into resins that would be molded onto the tops of cars or maybe the roofs of buildings. One team of materials scientists is developing microcells that could be rubber-stamped by the millions onto a yard of fabric. When such cells shrink in size – but not efficiency – it becomes hard to imagine what they couldn’t electrify.

    “The idea is to develop ubiquitous solar power,” says Greg Nielson of Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque. Foldable and moldable modules crammed full of photovoltaic cells could directly power devices or recharge batteries. “You can imagine putting them onto every surface,” he says. “Your cell phone, laptop, backpack, tent – whatever.”

    just bypass these fucks. their paradigm is dead, they just don’t know it yet. all their shrieking will not create one iota of difference on the planet now and can only do harm. Everyone knows that the world is fucked without rapid and massive transformation. if they keep trying to block it they will eventually be buried by their own ignorance. keep fighting, keep pushing forward now. do not look back. they want you to. the top 1% cannot keep us down but they believe they can…

    fuck them
