I'm listening to the Talking Politics episode about the Green New Deal
. Bill Janeway points out that it needs to not just fund green energy initiatives, but to provide cover for mistakes and a lack of clarity, which are a big part of making huge things that don't exist yet, like running the country on alternative sources of energy and stopping the flooding of the world, more or less. If you don't know what you're going to make, you can't say, well, we'll do this, this, and this, then we'll have that. I've been in this situation often, on a far smaller scale.
Other guests point out how partisan the Green New Deal is. Green stuff is considered to be owned by the Democratic party because the Republican party is just plain irresponsible. Still, though, how is it going to get through under the political conditions that are likely to continue for the next five years?
