10 years from now if she had her way we would not be able to use ANY fossil fuels. 

 

 

You might want to read the proposal before making a statement like that. It says no such thing.

Panjandrum,

So right you are. Trump rolled us back to burning coal again correct.

 

It's hilarious watching the right getting totally bent out of shape over every move Alexandria Ocasio Cortez makes.

Relax KidBoy and don't fall for Fox's hyperventillating misinformation, there won't be any bans on planes or cars.

The link and many others are from NPR. MSNBC, etc. Please do not blame FOX for her stupid thinking.

10 years from now if she had her way we would not be able to use ANY fossil fuels. That would mean we would not have any airplanes! All vehicles would have to be electric...if you had a gas car it would not be of any use.

Get real!

Like I posted... That women is nuts....no airplanes .. junk your gas vehicles..give me a break!

OMG you sound like my dad when he freaked out over unleaded gas. I watched as he busted the catalytic converter off his pick up truck back in the 70s.

 

Things change. You survive. His last car was a Prius.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Releases Green New Deal Outline

200 Views
Message 59 of 59

Whether it's a deadly cold snap or a hole under an Antarctic glacier or a terrifying new report, there seem to be constant reminders now of the dangers that climate change poses to humanity.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., think they have a start to a solution. Thursday they are introducing a framework defining what they call a "Green New Deal" — what they foresee as a massive policy package that would remake the U.S. economy and, they hope, eliminate all U.S. carbon emissions.

That's a really big — potentially impossibly big — undertaking.

"Even the solutions that we have considered big and bold are nowhere near the scale of the actual problem that climate change presents to us," Ocasio-Cortez told NPR's Steve Inskeep in an interview that aired Thursday on Morning Edition.

She added: "It could be part of a larger solution, but no one has actually scoped out what that larger solution would entail. And so that's really what we're trying to accomplish with the Green New Deal."

What is the Green New Deal?

In very broad strokes, the Green New Deal legislation laid out by Ocasio-Cortez and Markey sets goals for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture. In the process, it aims to create jobs and boost the economy.

In that vein, the proposal stresses that it aims to meet its ambitious goals while paying special attention to groups like the poor, disabled and minority communities that might be disproportionately affected by massive economic transitions like those the Green New Deal calls for.

Importantly, it's a nonbinding resolution, meaning that even if it were to pass (more on the challenges to that below), it wouldn't itself create any new programs. Instead, it would potentially affirm the sense of the House that these things should be done in the coming years.

Lawmakers pass nonbinding resolutions for things as simple as congratulating Super Bowl winners, as well as to send political messages — for example, telling the president they disapprove of his trade policies, as the Senate did in summer 2018.
