Support for a “green new deal”?

In: Uncategorized

23 Nov 2008

An article in the Christian Science Monitor (19 November) on how an opinion poll in 21 countries shows support for more use of renewable energy sources even if it means higher prices in the short term. It talks favourably of President-elect Barack Obama’s plans to create jobs through the development of “clean technology” as well as the idea of a “green new deal”.

It is probably not yet clear to people that such a plan will mean substantially higher energy prices and the imposition of austerity.
