Green New Deal (GND)

The Green New Deal (GND) refers to a U.S. House of Representatives resolution and various legislative proposals supported by radical environmentalist groups.

While details of the “Deal” are unclear and frequently change, an attempt to estimate the cost of the plan that critics call a “radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy”[1] found it could cost upwards of $90 trillion over a ten-year federal budget window if enacted.[2]

The Green New Deal Coalition, sponsored by Sunrise Movement, is a coalition campaign advocating for the Green New Deal legislation introduced by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey in the 116th Congress.
