What Happens to Single-Family Homes under the Green New Deal?

Democrats running for President are very vague about the Green New Deal that they all seem to favor. “Smart,” “energy-efficient,” and “environmentally friendly” sound great. But what if it means 320 sq ft per person living areas, no parking places, and shared kitchen facilities?

Single-family houses in the suburbs may be a thing of the past. Without cars, people will need to live close to work. Most people may be unable to afford to retrofit their homes to meet energy standards: the cost to meet California requirements for an average home is $58,000. And as demands for “renewable” energy production cause electricity bills to soar (like in Germany), few will be able to afford to heat or cool a large home. Walk-up stack-and-pack aPodments might be in your children’s future.

The Green New  Deal is not Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s original idea. It’s part of the UN’s Sustainable Development agenda. A French nongovernmental organization, Novethic, proposes forbidding all new construction of single-family homes except trailers.

Let’s not wait to pass the Deal before we find  out what is in it.
