LINK 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!
