Environmental Information Center Comprehensive Foreign Affairs; Jiang Wei Compiler; Lin Dali Reviewer U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on the 7th confirmed defeating Republican incumbent President Trump and was elected the 46th president of the United States. During the presidential election, Trump has been opposed to the "Green New Deal", claiming it is a "little window" and will turn the United States into a "Ninth World country."
At a rally in Georgia on Oct. 16, Trump said Democrats "are going to tear down tall buildings and build houses with tiny windows." But photo background removing neither the Green New Deal nor the political views of Democratic presidential candidates mention windows. The Green New Deal calls for upgrading all existing buildings in the U.S. "including through electrification to achieve maximum energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort and durability." What exactly is America's Green New Deal? Inspired by former US President Franklin D Roosevelt's "New Deal" that led the country through the Great Depression of the 1930s, the US Green New Deal aims to combat the climate crisis while addressing inequality. Like the New Deal, the Green New Deal is not a single program or bill. Instead, it outlines the broad principles of America's plan to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
The Green New Deal also aims to ensure high-paying jobs in clean energy industries and to ensure that vulnerable groups, including "Indigenous peoples, people of color, immigrant communities, and de-industrialized communities," benefit from the green economy. Who supports the Green New Deal? The basic principles of the Green New Deal were developed by a group of academics and activists more than a decade ago in response to the 2008 financial crisis. A decade later, Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey revived the idea, introducing a Green New Deal resolution in Congress in 2019.
