A Scientifically-Achievable Green New Deal
An online presentation by Dr. James L. Conca, Senior Scientist for UFA Ventures, Inc.
Congressional members have rolled out a "Green New Deal" that calls for a rapid shift to carbon-free energy requiring drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy. Presently, America is 87% fossil fuel, split mostly between transportation and power. It took us 70 years to get to this point, so completely changing it in 20 years is a big, big lift requiring pretty radical changes.
The possible Green New Deals that are actually achievable need to be understood in time to avert collapse of the planetary ecosystems as the population peaks at mid-century. This issue is too important to accept substituting ideology for science.
