Climate Crisis and the Global Green New Deal

Speaker: Robert Pollin, Distinguished University Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts-Amherst

In this lecture, Pollin will focus on advancing a global Green New Deal. This program begins with phasing out, on a global scale, the consumption of fossil fuels to produce energy.  It correspondingly entails creating a new clean energy infrastructure in all regions of the globe.  The clean energy investments will be a large-scale source of new job opportunities.  The program must also include just transition measures for the workers and communities that currently depend on the fossil fuel industry.
