Top Democrats running for president in 2020 have jumped on and endorsed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical Green New Deal that aims, among other things, to eliminate air travel. But the elimination of air travel strikes particularly close to the homes of Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris – all of whom extensively used air travel, including private jets – throughout the years in office.

The article goes on to state the following:

Harris, among the leading Democratic candidates in the 2020 race so far, has been an early backer of Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution to tackle climate change by radically transforming the country by rendering air travel obsolete, moving the U.S. to rely completely on renewable energy with net-zero emissions, and guaranteeing economic security even for people who are “unwilling” to work.

However, Harris herself is far from following what she preaches. Since 2015, her campaign has spent approximately $300,000 on air travel. Harris’ FEC records also indicate she spent less than $7,000 on trains, even though the Green New Deal pushes transportation by trains the main means of travel “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.”

Booker is another 2020 candidate who immediately jumped on the Green New Deal without delving too much on the details, even though he also extensively relies on air travel. His campaign records show that at least $300,000 were spent on air travel since 2013 by his campaign. He spent just about $11,000 on Amtrak – the Green New Deal’s preferred mode of transport.

    Air travel will only be eliminated for us not the political elite.Sounds like the energy program is designed to take us back to the Stone Age.What is her solution to farting cows?Kill them all into extinction?And you don’t have to work if you don’t want to? If I wasn’t already retired I would jump on that just so I would have more money than working and being taxed to death
