Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Green New Deal Eliminates Airplanes
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoting her Green New Deal for weeks now, claiming it will end social justice and solve global warming.
But we are just now getting a glimpse of exactly what is going on in that mind of hers, when she says Green New Deal.
Ocasio-Cortez wants to eliminate cow farts and airplanes! Yes, you heard that correctly!
According to the details of her proposal, Ocasio-Cortez, the plan is to “set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast”
It seems she understands that it won’t happen in 10 years, but I am not sure she understands that it won’t happen at all.
Here is the text of the offensive cows and airplanes part of her proposal:
Detailed at assts.documentcloud.org.
Why 100% clean and renewable and not just 100% renewable? Are you saying we won’t transition o fossil fuels?
Yes, we are calling for a full transition o fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases. Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy.
Simply banning fossil fuels immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it – this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically.
We do this through a huge mobilization to create the renewable energy economy as fast as possible.
We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t seem all that impressed with Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal. She was asked about the “the proposal in an interview with Politico on Wednesday. Pelosi seemed to poopoo the whole thing, while being as nice as she could.
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive. The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
A rather interesting blow-off for something her Freshman college seems to think will be the hit of the decade that will save humanity.
Asked about the proposal at her weekly news conference on Thursday, Pelosi struck a less dismissive tone.
“Quite frankly I haven’t seen [the Green New Deal], but I do know that it’s enthusiastic, and we welcome all the enthusiasm that’s out there,” Pelosi stated. “I’m very excited about it all, and I welcome the Green New Deal and any other proposals.”
It seems Pelosi is between a rock and a hard place, and after she reads the thing it will be worse.
Ocasio-Cortez has reached a fever popularity, with many in the House either signing on or verbally supporting the plan. Senator and Democrat Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris has signed on.
But now we have details…
You know… we have to pass the thing before you get to know what is in it? Well nobody gave Ocasio-Cortez that memo, and now we already know.
This should get interesting!
