POLL: Do you support the ‘Green New Deal’ launched by Socialist Dem Ocasio-Cortez?
On Thursday, Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rolled out her solution to save the planet from climate change, after declaring last month that the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t take action now.
The plan Ocasio-Cortez has proposed is described as a “10-year-plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War II,” (thereby saving the planet with just two years to spare.)
According to a FAQ sheet, released by Ocasio-Cortez’s office and obtained by NPR, the plan includes the following proposals:
- Move America to 100% clean and renewable energy, with full transition OFF fossil fuels
- Eliminate airplanes and “farting cows”
- Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency
- Create millions of family supporting-wage union jobs
- Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations and retirement security
- Guaranteeing healthy food, high-quality health care and high-quality education
- Guaranteeing safe, affordable, adequate housing
- Guaranteeing an economic environment free of monopolies
- Guaranteeing economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work
On how the Green New Deal would be funded, the proposal says, “The same way we paid for World War II and all our current wars. The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and investments and new public banks can be created to extend credit.”
Ocasio-Cortez notes that “nearly every major Democratic Presidential contender” is backing the plan, including Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Jeff Merkeley, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard and Jay Inslee.
The FAQ sheet states that 92 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans support the Green New Deal.
