I think this makes huge sense:
Given the relatively short amount of time we have to reduce carbon emissions, it may make more sense to focus on local campaigns to move to renewable energy and increase energy efficiency. This can be done in ways that transition workers and communities to the new energy economy. A Green New Deal will provide more and healthier jobs than the current dirty energy economy.
Of course, be ready for the carbon-burning plutocrats to funnel campaign money to Congress to pass laws to block states and local governments from blocking carbon burning and from increasing clean alternatives.
