    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats on Thursday laid out a "Green New Deal" that would eliminate U.S. greenhouse gas emissions within a decade, an effort to make climate change a central issue in the 2020 presidential race.

    The document, unveiled by rising political star Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Edward Markey, marks the first formal attempt by lawmakers to define potential legislation to create big government-led investments in clean energy and infrastructure to transition the U.S. economy away from fossil fuels.

    =============================================

    The "Green New Deal" is simply Authoritarian Government control disguised as an Environmental Bill.

    Some of the idiocy:

    Close all nuclear plants. That would basically leave nearly a hundred million Americans with no power during the coldest subzero winters. The question isn't "will people die", but "how many will die"?

    Stop Air Travel. It should be real good to get around and shipping? All products are going to get incredibly expensive. Hawaii... too bad!

    End Fossil Fuel. America just became a net exporter and the world's leader. It's time to end that international advantage and lose trillions in revenue and countless jobs.

    Guaranteed Income. For those unwilling to work! That should make the U.S.A. a real economic leader.
    Way to go Democrats! The utter destruction of America economically and the enslavement of its people!

    Where are the usual suspects from Team Liberal. Why aren't they here telling everyone they're being trolled again or how we've given Trump a free pass again. Or all we do is read to RW blogs to get our bias info.

    This is too crazy for even Crazy Mazie, but the new group coming of age believes this with the passion of a zealot.

    What do these Green folks propose for China and India? The US does not pollute near as much as those countries.

    Funny you posted that.

    Last night Mark Steyn was talking about AOC's New Green $teal and he mentioned how all the gassy black and white cows looked like the Governor of Virginia with half his makeup on. :lol:

    Is that the Democratic Party of Virginia blowing up in the background?

    It's actually hilarious to see how utterly insane the democratic party is getting.

    I can't wait until they run on this in 2020.

    "We will end air travel"!

    What a campaign slogan!

    Little secret, environmental policy isn't about the environment, it's about these wannabe tyrants seizing the means of production. The Socialist Republics of just China and USSR seized the means of production and starved hundreds of millions to death. More recently, the socialist government in Venezuela, has an elite in charge of a starving population. We are never going to adopt socialism. We were Born Free and We are going to Remain That Way.

    Democrats Are Boosting Trump’s Re-election Prospects.

    When you look at the polls breaking down the actual Democratic electorate, you’ll find limited support for such socialist-minded schemes. Broaden out to the overall electorate, and it’s easy to see how Democrats could be giving President Trump a lifeline to a second term despite his widespread unpopularity.

    “We are on an out-of-control roller coaster going 100 miles-per-hour, and we have no functioning brake,” said one liberal Democratic strategist who is alarmed by the rising tide of socialism within the party. “No one is leading and that void could not be more clear.”

    What’s so remarkable about this rapid leftward shift is that it’s working against the party’s best interests—both for the individual candidates and their chances of defeating Trump next year.​

    All the Democrats had to do was not act crazy, but instead they’ve become the party of Florida Man on Bath Salts Running Naked Down the Interstate Chewing Off His Own Face.

    Without American fossil fuel or nuclear power, it will take tons of sails to move our aircraft carriers into position. Probably makes no difference though since the carriers won't have any aircraft.

    I wanna hear how Occasional Cortex plans on eliminating those farting cows. She gonna feed them Ex-Lax, or just render the species extinct in a giant BBQ?

    Perhaps we have some here on the left that can explain that?

    The only rational solution:

    1. Nuclear power for the grid, demolish and rebuild old less safe, heavier polluting plants.

    2. Household solar

    3. Electric cars are taking off, no intervention needed. Let people keep their V8s

    Problem solved.

    This plan makes sense if someone believes the USA is responsible for all the problems in the world.
