A New Green Deal

| July 9, 2001

A New Green Deal, Mark Hertsgaard, Mother Jones
Is clean, earth-friendly, efficient energy economically feasible? Contrary to the views of the Bush/Cheney/Big Oil administration, Mark Hertsgaard says it could be. Writing in Mother Jones, Hertsgaard proposes a 'New Green Deal' that would reinforce the clean energy movement while bolstering the teetering economy. Hertsgaard points to America's investment in computer technology during the 1960s, which, with guaranteed markets in the Pentagon and NASA, resulted in the thriving digital revolution we're experiencing today. Citing several examples of proven payback, Hertsgaard outlines a plan that could actually make clean, efficient energy an economic bonanza. So why not give it a try? Ask Congress.
