The Green New Deal and Beyond
The Green New Deal and Beyond
The Road from Climate Emergency to Ecological Reality
Foreword by Noam Chomsky


A clear and urgent call for the national, social, and individual changes required to prevent catastrophic climate change.

"An iconoclast of the best kind, Stan Cox has an all-too-rare commitment to following arguments wherever they lead, however politically dangerous that turns out to be."—Naomi Klein, author of On Fire: The (Burning) Case for the New Green Deal

The prospect of a Green New Deal—sustainable energy, and justice for all Americans—has instilled millions of people with a sense of hope. To make it happen, the plan will require a national mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II. But will it be enough to prevent disaster? Scientists now warn that we have little time to eliminate greenhouse emissions. To do what's required, Stan Cox urges readers to embrace the Green New Deal but go beyond it in order to stop global warming before it’s too late. In clear and accessible language, Cox explains why we must abolish the use of fossil fuels on a clear timetable, and reduce over-production and over-consumption—points not mandated by the GND. By starting now to find creative ways in which we can live in a lower-energy society, Cox writes, we as individuals and communities can play key roles in bringing about the necessary transformation.
