Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) shut down a far-left activist group after they used children to create a scene in her office in an attempt to push alarmist climate change policies.

"I hear what you're saying but we're the people who voted you", the girl tells Feinstein.

An edited video of their meeting was shared on social media by the Sunrise Movement, a self-described "army of young people" striving to elect leadership who will address the urgent nature of climate change, according to their website. "You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway". "There's no way to pay for it", says Feinstein, which prompts a girl to respond: "We have tons of money going to the military".

This is how @SenFeinstein reacted to children asking her to support the #GreenNewDeal resolution - with smugness + disrespect. I know what I'm doing, ' Feinstein replied. Across the globe, teenage activists are picking up the mantle of climate change, from the Swedish 16-year-old Greta Thunberg - who told an audience at Davos that "our house is on fire" - to the 21 young Americans suing the federal government for violating their due process rights by knowing about the dangers of climate change for decades, but doing nothing about it.

"And then you do it your way", Feinstein went on.

"So I think one day you should run for the Senate, and then you do it your way".

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

A younger girl retorted that it doesn't matter because "we're gonna be the ones who are impacted", and Feinstein said she understood as she has seven grandchildren. The group also posted a recording of the full livestream, during which the sense of anger eases up about eight minutes in, when Feinstein forces her own version of an environmental action plan on to the kids and the adults.

Later in the encounter, Feinstein could be heard telling the group she's "trying to do the best" she can, "which was to write a responsible resolution".

"I want the children to know they were heard loud and clear. And you can take that back to whoever sent you here".

The veteran Democrat seemed to harshly criticize the children for their their requests that the longterm lawmaker back the 'Green New Deal, ' accusing them of presenting an ultimatum. Many scientists theorize that greenhouse gases may be a major contributor to the notion of man-made climate change.

Even Nancy Pelosi referred to the plan as a "green dream".
