    Ok this is exciting because I see from the comments MOST of you, even though you are all left leaning, are able to spot how bad this green new deal is. SO, ask yourself, why is the democrat show, I mean the 'daily' show supporting it?
    Now that I have your attention, if your attention span is long enough, please, watch this with an open mind and really think about every point he made. Then continue watching your state sponsored propaganda shows, and maybe, just maybe, some of you will join us in the great walk away movement. I too was on the left, many of us were. Being a victim of indoctrination is NOT something to be ashamed of

    My wife and I would loose our jobs as we live in the deep country and I have to drive all the time to clients homes to repair issues and my wife would have to walk to work 40 miles each way, 5 days a week.I would miss seeing cows across my lake as well. For us to take a train would be impossible.

    Why would I be against Cortez's plan? Because it only aims to reduce carbon emissions by 15% at cost that reaches into the trillions. It's a terrible plan! Just admit it!
    The only reason you claim it's a sound plan is because you're a liberal, and you've chosen your team. Now you have to cheer from the sidelines for your team, forgetting about what's actually good for our country.

    Cow farts. Really? Cow farts contribute to climate change?? Hahahahahahahahahaha!
    Trevor Noah, you are a crazy man to believe that horse sh- excuse me, cow sh!t!
    Do you have an idea how many "cows" (bison) inhabited the great plains of North America? For thousands of years??
    The answer is a whole h3ll of a lot more than we have living in dairy farms and ranches today (the herds numbered in the millions, btw).
    How come it didn't affect the climate back then? Huh? Huh??
    Because it didn't.

    The alternative to plastic is hemp products for it makes over 26,000 different things. It has even been proven to be 10 times stronger than steel and 30% lighter stronger and lighter than concrete stronger and lighter than brick far more versatile making the design possibilities practically limitless, at the same time being easier to work with on-site' equally as amazing 1 acre of hemp! Can produce enough bile fossil fuel to fuel 10,000 vehicles for a year at about a dollar per gallon. One of the major differences is hemp bile fossil fuel only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide on oxygenated air per mile as a person does when the exhale versus coal oil gas. Which release tens of millions of years worth of petrified death per mile. The real sales pitch" is 1 acre of hemp! Produces 3 to 4 times the amount of oxygen as a acre of trees + it sucks in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide un oxygenated air as a acre of trees plus it rejuvenates and replenishes the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality after every harvest even if the landscape has been previously stripped robbed depleted from overharvesting things such as cotton and corn that has been marinating in petroleum-based fertilizer. Not to mention it has the same nutritional value as rice corn wheat barley and milk. So we can easily deal with people being over fed and undernourished In layman's terms we can rebuild faster much more efficiently at a fraction of the cost in half the time of what we are doing today without leaving any excess poison is toxic waste behind. In layman's terms we can manufacture mass-produce distribute products that every country city continent is going to be happy to spend top dollar. Example hemp! Clothing distributes moisture across the body more efficiently than any other material leaving a person feeling smelling and smiling their best even under the most extreme circumstances plus it promotes good respiratory function so if a person has asthma allergies or other breathing complications just by wearing its clothing you will alleviate those symptoms with the potential of diminishing them all together. Hemp! has even been successfully grown on radiative soil. So in theory if we grow hemp along the shores of our rivers and lakes we will greatly improve upon the quality of that water. Nonetheless we definitely will improve upon and maintain the quality of our air water foods landscapes working living environment every day home products by producing 3 to 4 times more oxygen per acre than we do currently. At the same time sucking in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide un oxygenated air per acre as we do currently, as a added bonus everywhere we grow it we will be rejuvenating replenishing the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality. Keep in mind America has about 800,000 acres of available farming land. So again we have the manpower technology resources capability technology to create clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast that will improve upon and maintain the quality of life in such a way. That will naturally allow each person's generation to become stronger smarter healthier happier better off physically mentally financially possibly spiritually then the previous generation. With that type of leadership loyalty devotion to one's self and country People may start finally having jobs products power sources that will allow them to be healthy and wealthy enough to live enjoy their life all the way through out retirement. You can't do that would dirty low-paying jobs. That come from outdated power sources inferior materials poisonous toxic substances pesticides chemicals that never change their killing composition which means whether it's solid liquid or burnt off to our airways atmosphere as a vapor is always going to be poisonous debilitating deadly to the body at the same time polluting corrupting devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. The bottom line you cannot promote life by doing business with material resources substances that have been scientifically classified religiously verified as petrified death or worse. Think about this if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper. I guarantee it's not so would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs. Would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on a diminished quality of life. Case closed mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare are not changing these facts. You're either part of the world solutions or you are exacerbating the world's problems either way each and every one of us is being held spiritually accountable for each and every moment. laugh smile grin chuckle with confidence I say now I wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim. I guarantee you never see hear another body man empower persons of legal religious authority leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty. One reason could be the don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs at heart) another reason could be the come from a breed of cowards! One is genetic hereditary the other is simply a generic learned behavior either way it is physically mentally spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner especially if that stupidity ignorance desperation stems from being soft lazy out of shape over fed undernourished overworked underpaid with dirty low-paying jobs.

    Many of the people who say no are old and are gonna die anyway. They are not going to feel the dramatic changes of their consequences. The youth, the youth is the ones asking the government to change. Because we all know the president of the USA doesn't "believe" in climate change. But some people, specially the youth, give a shit about their future. The least we can do is listen to ideas or give ideas .

    Has anyone really read what the Green New Deal contains on here? Ack.
    It’s comprehensive because redirecting the costs to sectors that need it more will provide jobs, healthcare, free education, funding for agriculture and so on. Increasing the percentage taken from upper tax brackets will provide part of the money to fund it (which was done under Eisenhower with great results). Investing in sustainable energy will cut the costs for importing fossil fuel. It will be a domino effect which the legislation explains in detail.

    One only has to recall AOC's former (thank God) Chief of Staff who readily admitted that the Green New Deal wasn't really about the climate. In a Washington Post profile he said, "The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

    * China, India, and Africa will continue increasing carbon usage into the distant future.
    * World population will top out at 11 billion, 4 billion more than today, and every one of those 4 billion will want what burning gas and oil can make.
    * The melting permafrost holds more carbon than all carbon ever released by humans!
    If this problem is real, IT IS TO LATE!
    Best to get ready for what comes next!

    I’m okay with talking about seps to eliminate carbon emissions but the absolutely ridiculous ideas of universal basic income for those who are unwilling to work, remodeling every building in the United States without any gas with technology that does not exist yet is stupid and the fact that these huge holes aren’t even mentioned ridiculous. Read the proposal before you agree too it. Universal basic income is socialism and her timeline is unrealistic.
