Green New Deal Explained: Climate, Jobs & Equity Forum

Green New Deal Explained: Climate, Jobs & Equity Forum

The UUCC the Vote team and the UUCC Climate Crisis team are pleased to jointly sponsor this Zoom Forum at 7:30pm on Monday, September 28 in response to multiple requests about better understanding the “Green New Deal.”  See Presentation

In this UUCC Zoom Forum, we will strive to answer the questions:

  • What are the main elements of the Green New Deal (“GND”)?
  • How might the GND discussion affect this election and policies afterwards?

There are multiple versions of a Green New Deal, but they all focus on climate, jobs, and equity.

The presentation will start by describing the “original” Green New Deal (also known as the AOC or AOC/Markey Green New Deal, or HR109 and S.Res.59). We will then compare and contrast HR109 to the Climate Policy elements from the Biden/Sanders Unity Task Force.

The discussion will also ask about the implications of using the FDR New Deal analogy when addressing our current combination of economic, equity and climate problems. Central to the discussion will be how does it impact and get impacted by the upcoming national elections, and the way that the climate discussion is crafted now and may be crafted after the election?

About our Speaker, Paul Baicich

Our discussion will be led by Owen Brown resident and leader of Our Revolution Howard County, Paul Baicich.  Paul’s presentation will derive from his two major work experiences – “from both sides of the brain,” as he might insist –  from his 15 years in the airline industry and associated union movement (IAMAW) and his work as a bird conservationist. Paul’s talk should be under an hour, with plenty of time for Q&A and discussion to follow.
