Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Pushes for a Green New Deal in Congress

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

Calling climate change "a national emergency", Buttigieg said the concept matched "a sense of urgency about that problem of climate change with a sense of opportunity around what the solutions might represent".

During her appearance on the NPR podcast a couple of days back, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined her stance in regards to her monetary policy and how she plans to restructure the social/economic framework of the U.S. if her freshly proposed "Green New Deal" is passed by the senate. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, introduced a Green New Deal resolution in Congress, the policy document was taken off the website, The Washington Examiner reported. Ocasio-Cortez's office released the resolution to reporters on Wednesday night with a separate FAQ document that seemed to contradict some aspects of the resolution, including taking stances on nuclear energy and farming emissions that didn't appear in the official document.

Phillips found that the majority of college students loved her proposal - until they heard what is actually in it.

"To be honest, I think we need those things to live".

One student's initial perception of the deal was that it was "progressive" and would help "push the world forward". "Today, I think a word like that is the beginning of a debate, not the end of a debate".

"I think if we didn't do that, then we're gonna be killing ourselves basically, so we need to take care of ourselves", a different student said. Global warming is a threat to the planet. It sets a goal to meet 100% of the power demand in the US through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources. I have a 10-year-old and 7-year-old.

Hockett said Ocasio-Cortez does not want to ban airplanes or pay people "unwilling to work".
