If the Green New Deal were to be enacted, it would be very similar to what we have now except that it would be permanent until the country collapses. Then there will be chaos, and we will end up like Venezuela with the environment far worse off than it is now.
Look at what we have now:
o Massive unemployment
o Massive, unsustainable government budget deficits
o Very little air travel, except by the elite members of the government who will be in power.
o Chronic shortages of many goods and services.
o Draconian government rules and regulations some of which imposed simply because politicians have to power to impose them.
o Growing poverty through out the population. Long lines for free food have become common.
o Few opportunities to enjoy life, ever.
o Massive numbers of business failures and bankrupcies.
In short, look at how it in North Korea, and you will see what we will have here under the Green New Deal.
The original Franklin D. Roosevelt New Deal promised good times and prosperity to the nation that had be racked by the Great Depression. Some of the ideas were good and worked. They included the FDIC, Social Security for the most part and the Federal Trade Commission. Others, like the NRA, were poorly conceived and fortunately knocked down. Franklin Roosevelt and his adviser honestly thought that their programs would enhance the human condition.
There is no upside the Green New Deal. It an excuse to impose socialism on the country with no positive benefits. Like North Korea, a few politicians will get very wealthy and live well because they will control all of the assets and lavish those goods on themselves their supporters. Everyone else will be lucky to scrape by.
