It means recognising that climate change is a symptom of our broken economic system.
On the benighted continent the idea of a Green New Deal is virtually unknown (the exception being Yanis Varoufakis bringing it over for his DiEM movement) as the political pall of German hegemony follows upon the economic hegemony. But let us not give up hope. Where there are kids on the streets protesting, there may well be a future. Britain needs a new economy that works for everyone and to move beyond the old, broken systems and status quo that left many people behind. A green new deal for the UK could give us just that.
