Green jobs are more than solar - new book
Green New Deal will create millions of new green jobs
By Justine Burt
American society currently faces a crisis in the world of work between outsourcing, automation, the gig economy, and low levels of employee engagement. At the same time, our transportation systems and means for producing energy, materials, and food are degrading life support systems on Earth. The solution, however, is simple: we must abandon “business as usual” and draw up a blueprint for creating meaningful jobs that will also dramatically reduce waste and restore the natural world.
The Great Pivot is that blueprint. It details 30 projects for developing advanced energy communities, low-carbon mobility systems, a circular economy, a rejuvenated food production system, and restoring nature. In February Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released the Green New Deal Resolution with broad brush strokes. Now we as a society get to have a discussion about what we want the details to be.
We’re having a dialogue about what the details of the Green New Deal could be. Sign up to be part of the discussion. (You can opt out at any time.)
