Under the recently proposed “Green New Deal,” civil nuclear power plants may be closed in ten years. That is, if alternative energy sources can close the gap and replace the approximately one-fifth of the nation’s power they now generate. The Green New Deal is a set of proposed economic policy changes geared toward drastically reducing the amount of greenhouse gases the U.S. emits every year. It was recently presented by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Edward Markey, who are hoping to achieve a nationwide “net-zero” emission level by beefing up research and development into renewable energy sources, according to a report from CNBC.

“The Green New Deal doesn’t belong to me. The Green New Deal belongs to indigenous communities, it belongs to the residents of Flint, it belongs to Puerto Rico, it belongs to the victims of wildfires,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on twitter.
