This fall, we hosted the second annual Ecomodernism event outside Washington, DC. One of our favorite debates to ever take the stage is now live online: UC Santa Barbara’s Leah Stokes and Niskanen Center’s Jerry Taylor on the Green New Deal, with The Guardian's Emily Holden moderating.
Before this in-person debate, Taylor had written a detailed open letter to GND proponents, to which Stokes responded in a 30-point tweet thread. They – as we like to call it – Achieved Disagreement on a variety of points: the link between climate and inequality, the scale and cost of the climate problem, the effectiveness of bundling social and climate policy, and the role of social movements. We were excited to watch them hash it out in person.
