Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) reintroduced the Green New Deal, a resolution which claims to solve climate change within the next decade by drastically reshaping the American economy.

The text of the resolution calls for the United States to meet all power demand through renewable and zero-emission sources, upgrade all existing buildings in the nation to achieve maximum energy efficiency, and overhaul the transportation system to remove carbon emissions to the greatest extent possible. The Green New Deal was initially proposed four years ago by the two lawmakers when Ocasio-Cortez entered Congress for the first time.

“When we first introduced the Green New Deal, we were told that our vision for the future was too aspirational. Four years later, we see core tenets of the Green New Deal reflected in the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest ever federal investment in fighting climate change, with a focus on creating good, green jobs. But there is still much, much more to do,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement. “Today’s reintroduction marks the beginning of that process of strengthening and broadening our coalition, and of laying the policy groundwork for the next fight.”
