Professor Cutler Cleveland spoke to BU Today about the Green New Deal unveiled by BU alum Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “A 10-year window to eliminate all [greenhouse gas] emissions is unrealistic,” Cleveland told the news site. “The technologies to achieve this already exist to a large extent: electricity from wind and solar, electric vehicles, and net-zero vehicles. But the transformation of the electric grid, the wholesale elimination of the internal combustion engine, and the retrofit of the nation’s building stock is more than a 10-year project.”
