I have been asked how I would fund the Green New Deal. This is a response I prepared to support some thinking a little while ago. I should add that I have not edited to indicate that this is solely my thinking:
Green New Deal is hitting the headlines. It's the darling of the left wing of the US Democratic party and is being suggested by the UK Green Party and increasingly the Labour Party, the SNP is also on board.
We will soon have a General Election, this sounds to me like a good recipe for success.
