The silence of conservative politicians on the deficit impact of spending two trillion dollars is, in itself, very revealing. It shows that we can spend money on important issues, despite all the previous prophesies of doom. New economic understandings show that we can afford to spend money on big social programs, like the Green New Deal.

The reading list:
- Adler-Bell in The Outline about why there was always money
- Kelton interviewed on MMT
- Vox explains MMT
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
