The Green New Deal (POP2264.02)

John Hultgren, Tim Schroeder & Kerry Woods

In recent weeks, calls for a Green New Deal have stoked enthusiasm from the Left, criticism from the Right, and confusion for many unfamiliar with the term. This Environmental Studies Pop-Up will introduce students to the Green New Deal, using insights from social and natural science to examine the history and evolution of the concept. We will also engage with the Fourth National Climate Assessment to understand the impacts of climate change on the United States, and to consider whether the policies proposed in a Green New Deal are well-suited to deal with the enormity of the crisis that we face.
