Beyond the Green New Deal

Stan Cox, research fellow in Ecosphere Studies at The Land Institute: speaks at Middlebury College in Vermont. Open to the public.
Stan argues in his latest book, The Green New Deal and Beyond, that we must support the Green New Deal but must also, by law, put an impermeable ceiling on the national fossil-fuel supply, one that rapidly lowers year-by-year, reaching zero in the near future. That will require planned allocation of resources among economic sectors and fair-shares rationing of energy for households. Clearly, this will also require deep transformations of our economy and society.
