A Green New Deal co-author panned Speaker Nancy Pelosi for including “tiny” airline emissions standards in the House’s coronavirus response package, arguing now is not the time for token environmental provisions when Americans’ livelihoods are hanging in the balance.

Saikat Chakrabarti, the former chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, called Pelosi’s idea “ridiculous” to include carbon emission language in legislation designed to keep Americans from losing their incomes, homes and businesses during the pandemic.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I helped write the #GreenNewDeal and I think this is ridiculous,” tweeted Chakrabarti, who helped author the Green New Deal while working with Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey’s office. “The tiny little emissions standard increase doesn’t even do anything meaningful to stave off climate change and gives the @GOP leverage to get rid of real help for working people. Solve the problem at hand.”

Chakrabarti adding in a second tweet, “Imagine if Pelosi had passed a simple, 5-page bill that just did the obvious stuff everyone knows could hold the economy together. Payroll covered, debts pauses, direct cash to people, 0% interest loans for business. Then dare the Senate to oppose it. We’d have a bill last week.”
