The Atlantic’s Newkirk on Green New Deal: ‘Government Control’ of Economy Not a Fear for Americans

‘I think it actually changes the nature of the debate’


NEWKIRK: “If you look at the framework of what the green new deal is asking for, they actually head off one of the main criticisms of green policy by prescribing a full labor force, by going after increasing health insurance, by basically, offsetting every single major conservative argument against major climate action, and that's up front. And so I think it actually changes the nature of the debate to one where I see now people are going against government control or against the amount of money it's going to cost.”
