We Need A Green New Deal!
In solidarity, Russell Greene for Alan, Deb, Mike F, Mike H, Janis, Dan, Dr Bill, Kimberly, Bryan, and Shayna—your PDA Stop Global Warming National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) was founded in 2004 to push for the most progressive, most effective solutions to the most critical challenges facing our nation and our planet, including the stopping global warming. Nothing is more urgent than solving the climate emergency. This is the decade for action. Time is running out. We’re encouraged to see a historic tectonic shift in terms of the conversation on climate.
Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced a resolution calling for a Green New Deal. PDA is profoundly grateful to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise Movement for bringing the Green New Deal movement to the forefront, and helping to bring this historic moment to fruition. PDA is committed to three essential steps—all to be implemented within the next ten years:
1 – 100% clean renewable energy
2 – Zero emissions
3 – Negative carbon emissions (drawdown)
PDA persistently declares that we are facing a climate emergency, and we will not stop demanding a whole-of-society mobilization to meet the moment. PDA will center ourselves in truth of the historic breakthrough, and of the science. The Sen. Ed Markey / Rep. Ocasio-Cortez resolution can still be strengthened further. PDA will stand for that truth through the coming months.
Help PDA fight for the far-reaching, far-sighted policy initiative we need to save human life from the impending climate catastrophe. Please give generously now.
P.S. I proposed and spoke out for the “Global Climate Leadership” platform amendment that became part of the 2016 Democratic Party platform. Watch my presention in this video.
