WATCH: NYC Democratic Socialists Protest for Green New Deal in Public Schools

Elad Eliahu spoke with advocates for radical societal progress in response to climate change

On Sept. 26, New York City Democratic Socialists of America’s Ecosocialist Working Group gathered outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s office to pressure the lawmaker into passing the Green New Deal for Public Schools Act. The legislation, proposed by Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), aims to invest over $1.4 trillion in public schools over the course of a decade.

“If enacted, the legislation would fund 1.3 million jobs per year and eliminate 78 million metric tons of CO2 annually,” Bowman said in a July 15 statement, calling for “a revolution in public education.”

About 100 protesters appeared at the rally near Bryant Park, where Elad Eliahu was on the scene to speak with them about the controversial possibility of nuclear energy as a solution to climate change, the perceived role of capitalism as a driving force behind global warming, and the possible impact of climate change on public education.

    I am sure all the electromagnetic fields with 5G, cell and satellite signals ( God only knows what else like HAARP and Bill Gates, the tech/ environmental guru’s solar engineering program), could not possibly affect the earth’s magnetic field, the jet stream and environment adversely. I know this, because all the research by the tech companies tells me so . I can rely on this research because they have been so candidly forthright with the public on other issues. Meanwhile, China remains the most prolific polluter on Earth.
