What Petrocaribe can teach the Green New Deal

Environmental justice has always been a struggle against colonization and capital. The Green New Deal can be a part of this struggle, but only if it offers an eco-socialist vision as big as the Global South. […] Because the economic and environmental future of the entire Global South is determined by a fossil fuel industry largely headquartered in the U.S., we must treat this report like a hitlist to build eco-socialism on the international scale that true eco-socialism requires. Only nationalizing U.S. energy production can do that—and do it fast, by “us[ing] public ownership to plan the sector for obsolescence,” as Johanna Bozuwa and Thomas M. Hanna from Democracy Collaborative write.
