The world has a very small carbon budget left not to surpass a global 1.5°C temperature rise. For a 66% chance to curb climate warming, we need to completely decarbonize our economies in about a decade.

The Green New Deal in the US and the European Green Deal lay out a plan for this. But whether our politicians seriously try to tackle the climate crisis depends on the next few months alone.

Both proposals are based on the principle of intersectionality. The climate crisis is a social crisis, which means that the factors that are destroying our planet are the same that are harming people.

Below are some of the resources that guided our research for this video. We have also added a few more links in case you want more information about the Green New Deal and the European Green Deal.
