The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unemployment to reach levels last experienced in the United States during the Great Depression. Given the depth and breadth of the COVID-19 recession, economic stimulus and recovery packages will be key to bringing the unemployed back into the workforce and deploying capital throughout the economy. The prospect that at least a portion of an economic stimulus plan can simultaneously accomplish climate policy priorities (a “green stimulus”) has drawn considerable interest.
Join the Center on Global Energy Policy, in partnership with the Breakthrough Institute and Data for Progress, as we discuss the opportunity for climate progress with a green stimulus in the United States following the 2020 election.
