Jackson, on why we need a #GreenNewDeal: "Is saving the planet reason enough?...If not, how about the tens of thousands of Americans who die unnecessarily each year from [air pollution caused by] coal-fired power plants and our vehicles,"

Jacobson: "[A #GreenNewDeal transition] will eliminate 62,000 air pollution deaths per year in the U.S, saving taxpayers $600 billion a year...The transition would create 2 million net jobs over those lost in the U.S."
Jacobson: "There is no technical or economic weakness [in a #GreenNewDeal], but social and political opposition is formidable. The fossil fuel industry has a lot at stake, and they sow doubt and oppose all legislation that will phase them out."
Jacobson: “At least 37 papers among 11 independent research groups find that the electric grid can stay stable at low cost with at or near 100 percent wind-water-solar.”
