A Green New Deal is part of the G20 requirement

Posted on

From today’s Guardian:

The UK economy faces a triple crunch: a recession triggered by a major credit crisis, the looming reality of runaway climate change and critical resource depletion. As a result we face serious challenges to our livelihoods and increasing threats to our fuel and food security.

Whatever the mistakes that allowed this situation to arise, there is growing international consensus that the best way out is via a green new deal policy package.

The G20 is not just about finance. It has to deliver carbon change too. They can’t say that’s just an issue for Copenhagen issue for later this year.

We won’t have a world without carbon change.That’s why a green new deal is essential.
