People interested in this discussion should check out this new movie, https://planetofthehumans.com/, available for free for the next few weeks, I think. I have criticisms of it, but it is worth a look.

Perhaps this has already been discussed on this platform (I am new to it), but this is also worthwhile. https://communemag.com/between-the-devil-and-the-green-new-deal/

This was a good essay. Thank  you Ashish. I wanted to call your attention to an essay I  just completed recently that makes some of the same points but also offers a formulation of “eco-socialism.”

The Green New Deal is the most progressive manifesto of any American politician (and paralleled by UK's Labour Party under Corbyn) for a long time. But it also has fundamental flaws. My short piece in Wall Street International Magazine. (A longer one coming up hopefully soon!)
