We’ve all heard the excuse that fighting climate change will cost jobs. A handful of politicians, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Randy Bryce, are rebutting that argument with a new package of policies that pairs labor programs with climate action.

If you want to learn more, check out our sources – Huffington Post's Alexander Kaufman also wrote a couple of good pieces on the Green New Deal:
