The Sunrise Movement, led by new member of the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has recently been demonstrating in the Capitol for the new House to put A Green New Deal on the Agenda in the upcoming Congress.
One of the main goals of the movement is for the U.S. to achieve 100% renewable energy. The Sunrise Movement wants to get Dems on record supporting the Green New Deal before the new Congress convenes next month.
Representative elect Ocasio-Cortez has called for the creation of a select committee in the House to lead the Green New Deal effort. She has called this proposed committee “the best solution on the table right now that will actually wok to avert crisis.”
Scotland expects to achieve 100% renewable energy for that country in 2020. Such countries as Denmark and Germany are not far behind. The U.S. needs to get on board.
A comprehensive plan for achieving this goal in the U.S. can be found at thesolutionsproject.org
So yes, it CAN be done---even in the U.S. According to the Fourth National Climate Assessment from the federal government, released in November, climate change, if not averted, could cause tremendous physical and economic damage to the United States in the years ahead.
Many thanks to the young people of the Sunrise Movement who are bringing the goal of 100% renewable energy to the attention of the Congress and the entire nation.
