Ed Markey and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, both Democrats, that is meant to change the USA economy to tackle climate change and create thousands of renewable energy jobs.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein was scorned on social media by people who accused her of talking down to middle and high school students who called on her to support the Green New Deal in a widely watched, edited video. The California Democrat argues that the policy is unworkable and says she doesn't agree with it.

"The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive", the group said in its analysis. "That's part of it". Atmospheric physics doesn't really care if you have good intentions but lack the political courage to actually address the problem.

In a statement Friday night about the confrontation, Feinstein said she "always welcomes the opportunity to hear from Californians who feel passionately about this issue and it remains a top priority of mine". She added, "I've been in the Senate for a quarter of a century, and I know what can pass, and I know what can't pass". Ed Markey's #GreenNewDeal resolution.

The conversation at times grew heated, especially when Feinstein dismissed the group's request due to their tone and their youth. What we can do is put ourselves"-Mother: "Senator, if this doesn't get turned around in 10 years, you're looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with these consequences". I know what I'm doing.

"I'll tell you what", Feinstein began her response. I think you're referring to some sort of document - I think some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating. "I've gotten elected. I just ran". I was elected by nearly a million vote plurality. "So maybe people should listen a little bit".

The senator also touted her years of experience, at one point noting the children in the room were not old enough to vote for her.

Soon afterward, people who appear to be Feinstein's aides hustle the children out of her office.

Later, a young woman stresses the need for a climate plan with "bold, transformative action", and Feinstein replies, "Well, you know better than I do".

In some ways, I think "climate delayers" or "climate bystanders" or "climate obstructionists" - whatever your favorite phrase is for these folks - are worse than climate deniers: They understand the problem, yet they're still not willing to act appropriately.

Feinstein said in the video that she has her own plan to try to combat climate change.

A woman urges the children to read the letter aloud.

The two videos have given rise to many interpretations of Feinstein's interaction with the children.

To that, Feinstein said: "The U.S. government does a lot of things with the money, and they're important things, and you just can't go in and say, OK, we're going to take hundreds of millions from here, and hundreds of millions from there".
