The group says the plans will be good for the environment and our pockets


A “Green New Deal” is needed to solve current problems of climate change, energy and finance, a report argues.

According to the Green New Deal Group, humanity only has 100 months to prevent dangerous global warming.

Its proposals include major investment in renewable energy and the creation of thousands of new “green collar” jobs.

The name is taken from President Franklin D Roosevelt’s “New Deal”,
launched 75 years ago to bring the US out of the Great Depression.

The new grouping says rising greenhouse gas emissions, combined
with escalating food and energy costs, mean the globe is facing one of
its biggest crises since the 1930s.

Its members include former Friends of the Earth UK director
Tony Juniper, Green MEP Caroline Lucas and Andrew Simms, policy
director of the New Economics Foundation (nef).

In an article for the BBC News website’s Green Room series, Mr
Simms warns that the combination of the current credit crunch, rising
energy prices and accelerating emissions are “conspiring to create the
perfect storm”.
