Join us for a lively, stimulating, and often deep discussion with some really interesting people! This month we talk more about a the Green New Deal. Please read at least the first of the following articles and come prepared for an interesting discussion on the many aspects of this new initiative.

Bill McKibben (creator of 350.org) responds to Dianne Feinstein’s encounter with young people confronting her about her decision not to support the Green New Deal. Lots of great food for discussion here:

Here’s a short little article about some very surprising polling on the support for the Green New Deal. You really need to check out the polling data on Republican attitudes – and be prepared for an amazing surprise!

Finally, does the Green New Deal open the door for moderate Republicans to propose their own climate solutions?
