Abstract

With time, climate change had started to become all the more challenging, and this necessitated many stakeholders to think of finding out ways to mitigate it. The Green New Deal (GND) - a resolution introduced by American politicians Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey, was one such development, which was being hoped to convert the old economy into a new one, which would be environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically viable. The deal would try to find solutions to the climate crisis by uniting quick action to achieve net- zero GHG emissions as well as 100% renewable energy among others. While supporters claimed it as a blueprint for prevention of environmental catastrophe, opponents called it unrealistic and unaffordable. Could the deal succeed in portraying a moral as well as political imagining that erstwhile politicians allegedly could not offer, and help in pursuing the radical proposal for decarbonising the American economy?
