The Green Real Deal, an optimization that translates aspirations and ideas into action within the control of social, financial and technical realities.
Ernest Moniz, American nuclear physicist and former United States Secretary of Energy, writes in the Science Mag editorial about how the Green Real Deal framework works.
Moniz emphasizes that the Green Real Deal framework must be: science-based; pragmatic; address all economic sectors; regionally focused; having an advanced social equity and workforce development.
To support and enable the framework, there should be an innovation in technology, business models, and policy, and technology innovation.
Moniz states that "without the development and deployment, at gigatonne scale, of breakthrough technologies that are affordable, the United States and the world will not reach net carbon neutrality."
Moniz continues, "Advancing an innovation initiative through Congress now will be an important step toward a Green Real Deal and perhaps awaken the kind of climate change accountability needed more broadly in 2020." Read the Entire Article
