AOC wants to ban meat, air travel, nuclear energy, cars . . .

Oh, and give everyone a free house.

And for those who don't want to work, give them "economic security".

At least they won't fly them to the Caribbean, or let them have Big Macs.

Thank goodness - American exercising leadership again instead of ceding to Russia and China...

On Jan 20th 2021, the strings were cut from Russia and China's orange puppet who occupied the WH for the previous four years...

"America is back on the international stage as a leader on climate action and drawdown" of greenhouse gas emissions, said Ocasio-Cortez, a main architect of the Green New Deal that helped shape major pieces of legislation.

On Saturday, U.S. President Joe Biden hailed the passage of his $1.2 trillion dollar infrastructure plan, which includes billions for electric vehicle charging stations, and tens of billions for climate resilience measures.

This is pure political posturing

Both Ocasio-Cortez, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. have not made a single concreate proposal to tackle US reliance on fossil fuel/energy

Annual U.S. coal-fired electricity generation will increase for the first time since 2014

Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions

This green new deal is close to becoming a political sham/hoax to hide a wealth redistribution agenda.

Cynically on the pretense COP 26 climate change.

I'll believe it when I see it, Nancy.

Did these people also arrive in the Emerald Isles on private jets?

They sure talk a lot about caring for the environment while jet-setting around the globe. I suppose the bard William Shakespeare would have some good words to say.

The sun emits visible light and infrared light (thermal radiation). Thermal radiation is absorbed by greenhouse gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, water vapor, and is later released to either be reabsorbed again, or escape into space.

The earth naturally has an equilibrium of greenhouse gases which has kept the planet and ecosystem stable for life, including humanity. If it didn't have this, the earth would freeze. However because of humanity, from the dawn of the industrial revolution to this century, Carbon dioxide has increased in the atmosphere 40% and methane has increased 150%.

For 650,000 years the PPM has rarely gone above 270PPM. Now over the past 150 years it's shot up to 418PPM.

The more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the more infrared light/radiation (thermal radiation) is retained, the longer energy takes to escape the Earth into space. This upsets the earths natural greenhouse equilibrium and causes the earth to warm higher and faster than the ecosystem can adapt.

Thus man made climate change.

Illegal immigration caused by climate change?!? That is a new one. What a bunch of maroons.

How much did it cost to send this group of geniuses on this junket?

Democrats only care about enriching themselves and making everyone else suffer.

"We lost a number of years (OF MONEY) because of the US withdrawal," said Laurence Tubiana, who helped craft the 2015 Paris climate treaty at France's chief negotiator. "We have to make up for that (LOSS OF INCOME)."

fixed it for everyone.

But still a zero plan as how people should get back to work and home. People in the West Coast must be loving these gas hikes and if this keeps up, they’ll turn red faster than molasses on a hot summer day.

This green new deal is close to becoming a political sham/hoax to hide a wealth redistribution agenda.

The green new deal was never about climate change and was always about socialism, according to AOC's former chief of staff and Justice Democrats adviser Saikat Chakrabarti:

https://news.yahoo.com/aoc-chief-staff-admits-green-124408358.html

"Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted recently that the true motivation behind introducing the Green New Deal is to overhaul the “entire economy.”

...

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said to Inslee’s climate director, Sam Ricketts, according to a Washington Post reporter who attended the meeting for a profile published Wednesday.

“Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing,” he added."

Pelosi tells COP26 'America is back' to lead on climate:
