Ocasio-Cortez unleashes on claim Green New Deal is elitist fantasy

Mitch McConnell stages show vote in the Senate on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's green new deal

The outlandish image was meant to illustrate the USA winning the Cold War, Lee said, but its fictional nature served a objective: "Because this image has as much to do with overcoming communism in the 20th century as the Green New Deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the 21st", he said.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Tuesday tore into a Republican colleague who suggested the so-called Green New Deal she is championing is "elitist".

Sen. Markey, the Senate's lead sponsor of the Green New Deal, was not amused. Payne also brought up a New York Times study from 2003 in which social workers said they encountered furniture and carpets covered in dust in these areas. Democrats accused the GOP of quashing debate by blocking public hearings and expert testimony about the consequences of inaction on climate change.

"I think it's a real stupid political move for them to show how cavalier they are about climate change by playing games with the Green New Deal", said Sen. Republicans are trying to elevate the freshman lawmaker, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, and her ideas as emblematic of the Democratic Party going into 2020. "We will not let them".

"The Green New Deal is one that if you are a rich liberal from maybe NY or California it sounds great because you can afford to retrofit your home or build a new home that has zero emissions, that is energy efficient, affordable and safe", Duffy said, according to Fox News. According to proponents, the ambitious proposal is necessary to avoid the potentially calamitous impacts of intensifying climate change. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was equally dismissive, referring to the deal last month as "the green dream, or whatever they call it". "I'm mostly afraid of not being able to get through this speech with a straight face". Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders, who all cosponsored the resolution, didn't vote in favor of it after trumpeting their support to help drum up donations?

House Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a new climate change initiative dubbed the Climate Action Now Act, legislation that would primarily focus on the United States recommitting to the Paris Climate Agreement standards it is in the process of withdrawing from under President Donald Trump.

She added: "I'm very sad to say that the government knew that climate change was real starting as far back as 1989".

United Nations scientists say the world has roughly a decade to make the necessary reductions in emissions that would keep global warming below unsafe levels.

Senate Republicans have been attacking the Green New Deal for weeks.

Democratic supporters are planning to vote "present" on a cloture vote on a motion to proceed later Tuesday, effectively derailing the measure (which would need 60 votes in support to get up for floor debate). Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii. "Republicans have no plan at all as it relates to climate change, and that's not a rhetorical flourish, that's not a partisan statement".

However, Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper said Tuesday he opposes the Green New Deal.
