Against the Grain

Planning for the Climate Crisis

The signs of an accelerating climate emergency are everywhere. While the broad notion of a Green New Deal has caught fire, the details and political hurdles are formidable at best. Radical political economist Robert Pollin lays out what a just plan should include, why it is imperative, and how it might be financed. He also discusses his concerns about geo-engineering and, from the left, the idea of degrowth.
