    The Green New Deal is an ambitious plan to fight the effects of climate change. It’s the only American plan that actually acknowledges the size of the impending crisis. And it contains some difficult truths that we might not want to hear.
    Read the Green New Deal resolution here: ocasio-cortez.house.gov/sites/ocasio-cortez.house.gov/files/Resolution%20on%20a%20Green%20New%20Deal.pdf
    For additional context I recommend this piece by Vox’s Umair Irfan on the United Nations climate report, where the world’s best climatologists tell us how urgent of a problem this is: www.vox.com/2018/10/8/17948832/climate-change-global-warming-un-ipcc-report
    This piece from Vox’s David Roberts, shows that world leaders really aren’t taking this urgency seriously. www.vox.com/2016/10/4/13118594/2-degrees-no-more-fossil-fuels
    Finally, you should read this explainer of the Green New Deal, followed by this story (in list form) by Hannah Northey:

    I also enjoyed this piece, from Kate Aronoff of the Intercept, that imagines a world after the Green New Deal: theintercept.com/2018/12/05/green-new-deal-proposal-impacts/

    If you want to read about the Green New Deal in the lens of the 2020 election, I recommend this piece explaining Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s proposal: www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/5/4/18527458/climate-change-jay-inslee-for-president-2020

    Inslee has the most ambitious climate proposals; it is, as Vox's David Roberts writes, the Green New Deal translated into policy.

    Electric cars actually cause more harm than normal veichels driven by fossil fuel does, the nasty thing is that no climate activist emphasises the importance of production and transportation of the components within an electric car, those components are harder to make and therfore rarly profitable thus only a few factories make these.

    Right wingers, the Green New Deal is a set of goals, not plans. Not legislation. There’s no realistic way of saying “it will cost $X” because it’s just goals. It wouldn’t ban air travel, or meat and it says absolutely nothing about tax rates.

    The republican politicians who are telling you these things are lying to you for their own purposes. You should stop listening to them.

    There is a scientific consensus that renewables are not viable, and most scientists see solar panels as worse than fossil fuels for climate change.
    I would be all for funneling money into something like ITER and reforestation though. China and India for example have achieved wonders simply by planting millions of trees completely offsetting their much worse greenhouse contributions.
    You'd literally get a hundred percent or better return on your investment just putting the money into that, than you would by attacking traditional fuel sources.

    2 problems with this video: 1st, they skipped over the part of the story where the green party wrote the green new deal about a decade ago including a part about paying for it partially through demilitarization, and they have run presidential candidates on the promise of a green new deal. Since this democratic version was written you can find it called the ecosocialist green new deal. 2nd, they claim the dems will certainly implement it in 2020 if they win power, which is just proaganda. Much of the dems are still opposed to the gnd because they are owned by the corporations the gnd would destroy. Only a few dems would actually move this forward, whereas every Green has promised to work toward the gnd since its conception.

      @Brian you are assuming that energy production/consumption must grow infinitely, and same with the rest of industry, which is physically impossible. You are also assuming the stability of our current system, which is incredibly unstablev and we are overdue for an economic downturn. You imply we ought to do nothing when drastic times call for drastic measures. Our economy totally collapsed just over a decade ago, and people are really suffering still. In the 30s when that happened, fdr confronted the economic crash, the dustbowl, and a lot of the people's needs after strong unions led by socialists demanded the nd. This led to the most prosperous economic period in history. As a result of the nd, Americans built a lot that was previously inconceivable. It worked because the goal was not profit, but people (except minority communities). This is the kind of bold change our country needs again even if it leads to less consumption overall (with some modern changes). In the 21st c, there are other ways to ensure a booming economy without perpetuating a throw-away culture of toxic products made with toxic energy backed by the gamblers of wall st. If we continue the way we are going we will have nothing left. I'm going to put this simply: other animals don't foul their water, and humans have done this on a massive scale. Money is just a stand in for what we prioritize as a society, and right now, and things like clean water and keeping the sea levels from engulfing our cities ought to be at the top of our list. Your naysaying does nothing, but the gnd is an agreement to focus on and environmental-economic strategy to overhaul the old industrial system that isnt working for Americans.

    • Brian
      Brian 4 days ago

      Eagle-winged Turtle Your assuming:
      1. This will create jobs and generate economic growth
      2. This will increase industry and increase economic growth.
      In order to create jobs you first have to actually create products or grow an industry, which means you have to have an understanding of what you are building. The GND does not do this.
      Any sensible energy transition plan should be able to tell you:
      - how much generation is required to sustain a society
      - how much capacity and generation your energy sources will have.
      If I ask a GND supporter how much solar capacity the GND plans to increase in any given year, can you answer this question?
      No, because not only does the GND provide ZERO data of any kind in terms of actual power generation or projected capacity increases, it doesn’t even specify what type of energy sources it plans to use beyond just renewable.
      Additionally in order to grow the industry you have to have a good understanding of how that energy source is used. The GND wants to massively increase renewable capacity. Ok just using data from the US BLS and assuming every home in the USA uses a 7.5KW solar array, you can calculate that the net generation from residential solar is approximately 36% of our net portfolio.
      That’s great but not even close to being enough to replace fossil fuels or other energy sources.
      Here’s where the GND is devoid of logic. If you have to use more than residential solar this will require you to build- utility scale wind and solar. Utility scale wind and solar takes up sq miles of land. You cannot build these within city limits, and in order to maximize your production you will want to build large arrays which produce very large amounts of power.
      The GND contains ZERO language of any kind about transmission infrastructure. This doesn’t make any sense.
      1. Using low voltage power line to transfer electricity across large distance will cause significant power loss due to overheating of lines.
      2. If you attempt to transfer very large energy loads ok distribution cable the heat generated in the process will literally fry your line and potentially cause it to catch on fire.
      Unless you are planning on completely redesigning urban development of every city in the USA you will require transmission line to transfer your electricity from utility scale solar and wind to your cities, but apparently the GND doesn’t want to use any transmission infrastructure.
      This suggests either the co-sponsors want to completely redesign this country or they have no idea how electricity is actually transferred in this country.
      This is just one example of how the GND is complete utter nonsense.
      As for economic growth, if you can’t supply electricity to your industries and businesses your economy will collapse as they are unable to produce their products.

      Eagle-winged Turtle 4 days ago

If anything we are holding the rest of the world back because we spend all our money on a military that is a major contributor to both global warming and the world's suffering under imperialist policies.

      Thank you! this is the only meaningful post I've seen. The US is just a part of the world emissions. And the rest of the world will not follow suit, its impossible. As long as fossil fuels are available and cheap they will be used.

      algee has many potental human uses chemicaly speaking like oil does

      algee takes sun light makes sugers and protines from salts it dosnt heat up it stores that energy chemicaly

      Loss of Algee will in all rational logic be drastic Acclrating event its are planets biggest co2 converter by suface area of the globe

      Algee is light depent algee dies without light plasic in are oceans abosrbes light thus blocks light from algee
      Algee is effected by tempture the ocean water heats up algee dies
      Algee breaths co2 exhales o2 like trees
      more of the earth is a envorment for algee then tree leaves
      loss of liveable space for algee is a bigger loss of co2 converting life forms then can be lost from land
      smog abosrbes light it becomes heat
      plasic abosrbes light becomes heat
      both add to the green house gas effect by abosrbing rather then reflecting
      citys are heated by smog
      plasic absorbs light increasing the light abosrbed by ocean water thus acts like smog does across the water surface
      algee under the plasic layer dies from light loss
      algee in the plasic layer dies from heat
      the depth of algee seems constraned to the depth of plasic 10-20 feet in are oceans

      Juniyuni You do realize that most 100% renewable by 2050 published scientific studies evaluate the cost of transition between $12 and $25 trillion?
      Here’s the thing those studies focus on electricity transitions and some include transportation conversion.
      The GND includes a much much larger scope and 1/3 the timeframe for completion.
      At $600 billion over 10 years that’s only $6 trillion, less than 1/2 the average of 100% renewable studies by 2050 focusing on electricity transitions.
      Your argument is not effective solely based on math...

    • Brian
      Brian 9 days ago

      Juniyuni Even $6 trillion dollars over 10 years is less than 1/2 of cost estimates for 100% renewable by 2050.
      These cost estimates are from published scientific studies on energy transitions focused solely on electrical generation and transportation.

      @Juniyuni
      since according to the socialists we're all gonna be dead in 12 years, why do we need a green new deal?
      why not spend the money on a 12 year party?

    As a liberal I knew the Green New Deal is a waste of time. There is no way a conservative would agree to this, and what we need is a little cooperation. They package it in the most optimistic way in this video, but if you actually read it, the first part an inspiring call to action , the second part is a call to major socialism (which they sort of admit). Whomever wrote it wasted everyone's by using it to push a political agenda instead of what it should have been about.. the environment.

      @John Pixelty No. Emerging economies will find solar and wind cheaper than fossil fuels, especially when power stations havent been built yet.

      And the taxes will be on rich people. They can provide the most income.

    • John Pixelty
      John Pixelty 10 days ago +1

      You are 100% correct. Also emerging economies need fossil fuel to get their citizens out of poverty. This plan only applies to United States and probably will end up with a bunch of taxes on top of what we (the middle class) already pay .

    First and foremost we have stop Al Gore from using his private jet to fly to EU to attend "climate change" events. Then, we should ask Komyfornya limo-libs to stop using Colorado river water to lush their 100 acres lawns. Good thing Obama is gone and his tribe doesn't travel every two month on a fleet of government 747s to take much needed vacations, so we can cross that off the list.
    Now for the "green" and the "new"... Maybe Bern can downsize a bit from his "modest" houses. And don't get me started about AOC.. people in Bronx... imbeciles ain't got nothing on ya... So by all means, reap what you sow.
