Advocates for an American Green New Deal could take a look at Germany - report

National Geographic

Advocates of an American Green New Deal should look to other countries, including Germany, for successful examples, Alejandra Borunda writes for National Geographic. Germany, she says, shows how renewable energy can be incrementally integrated into the power grid, and has agreed its 2038 coal phase-out in dialogue with miners as well as environmentalists. Borunda also points to the Netherlands’ experience of moving communities out of flood zones, France’s building efficiency codes and Norway’s uptake of electric vehicles, among others.
