A Green New Deal (1) reduces the risks of nuclear power plant desasters, (2) reduces the number of people fallling into deeper poverty, who even die, because of climate change impacts (esp. in Africa) (3) save money, because the costs of more climate change are higher (impacts of more heavy storms, higher sea level etc etc) (4) reduces number of deaths caused by cole and oil pollution etc (near power plants and other regions, see for example region of Niger river) and (5) causes a lot of new jobs. -

Refering especially biological gas (for example as biological fuels), one should not use genetically manipulated plants, and not huge monocultures that need lot of pesticides etc., but make it by compostable waste and ecological farming, in a broad variety of plants (for example there are sorts of grass that need very few 'put-in' of work/energy, but give much biological gas over the years).

And note: For a green new deal it is not neccessary to make much new liabilities by the state, respective to enlarge the public indebtedness. A better way to finance it is to reduce the taxes for a business or a project which enforces 'green' innovations, and reduce the taxes for poor peoplebut take high taxes from very rich private personal property. - Ask yourself: Why should the big majority of a country, allow some very few people to accumulate millions of Dollars? Doesn't very unequal property include un-equal power, and isn't un-equal power un-democratic, because an important thing of a democratic republic is quite an equal distribution of power (and of freedom, of real chances for a good live)?
