American Attitudes on a Green New Deal
The Green New Deal has been making headlines for a while and is a significant talking point among the 2020 Democratic candidates for president. Although the GND has been portrayed as an extreme solution, recent polling indicates that most Americans support many aspects of it. ecoAmerica has done research with national polling firm Lake Research Partners to analyze American attitudes further, so that policy makers can better understand what solutions the public wants to see.
This Local Government Commission/ecoAmerica webinar discusses where the debate on the GND — and American support for clean energy and green job creation — may be leading us, and how local communities are responding.
