Is there a Green New Deal in the USA?

Climate policy on the road from Copenhagen to Mexico

 

The discussion will examine US international commitments and domestic actions. It will consider both what is (and isn't) happening at the federal level as well as efforts being made at state and local levels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The nature of the climate debate from the liberal to the conservative spectrums in the US will be considered along with what we can expect at the next climate negotiations in Mexico.
