We must cut greenhouse gas emissions over 50% by 2030 to prevent “catastrophic” climate change that would cause “global economic collapse” followed by“societal collapse” (IPCC). Fortunately, we have a new, detailed, 38-page version of the Green New Deal’s energy plan, the Evergreen Economy Plan, showing a swift nationwide transition to a clean energy by 2030 will more than pay for itself. The Evergreen plan will create over 8 million high-wage, local, permanent (40-year) green jobs. Private investment will pay two-thirds of the cost (as reported on vox.com). The rest of the cost will be more than offset by a $500 billion annual increase in U.S. gross domestic product (IPCC). That’s mainly because rapidly scaling up solar and wind will make them “essentially free” by 2030.
