Abstract

This article assesses how the Green New Deal, and particularly renewable energy, will fare under current siting and environmental protection statutory regimes and concludes that for the Green New Deal to succeed in its renewable energy and infrastructure goals, these regulatory regimes will need to tolerate more streamlined, top-down, preemptive processes, and extensive use of eminent domain, which necessarily will require new ways of satisfying demands for distributive justice and public participation.
