America’s most specialist and awesomest Congresspersyn Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez just finished her final project for Political Science 101: A Green New Deal!
“How to Stop Climate Change” By: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Poli-Sci 101. Professor Pelosi.
Look at some of her amazing ideas:
“Rebuild every single building in the U.S.
“Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”
Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next ten years.
The Green New Deal is “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.”
Plans to ban nuclear energy within 10 years if possible.
“It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.”
Build trains across oceans and end all air travel!
“Build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”.
Don’t invest in new technology of Carbon Capture and Storage, just plant trees instead!
“We believe the right way to capture carbon is to plant trees and restore our natural ecosystems. CCUS technology to date has not proven effective.”
Is this a college freshman’s class project for Poli Sci 101, or an actual policy proposal put forth by a real, live Member of Congress?
Ten-year-olds writing letters to the President have more realistic ideas than Ocasio-Cortez. The Green New Deal is totally unfeasible, pie-in-the-sky nonsense from top to bottom.
She wants to upgrade or replace every building in the United States. Every last one.
And forget gas-burning cars–she’s way beyond that. Getting rid of gas-burning cars is a given for Ocasio-Cortez: she wants to eliminate air travel by building high-speed rail systems all across the country, and even across the oceans.
Sorry, Hawaii: you’re basically fucked.
“Free money. The GND aims to provide, and I am not making this up, “economic security” for all who are “unable or unwilling” to work. Just to reiterate: if you’re unwilling to work, the rest of us will have your back.
Bonus insanity: Ban meat. Ocasio-Cortez admits that we can’t get zero emissions in 10 years “because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.” The only way to get rid of farting cows is to get rid of beef.
It actually does seek to give free money to those “unable or unwilling to work.”
I am not making this up. Go read the actual document and see for yourself. The “unwilling” part is right there in the first section on the first page.
Free money for everyone, and no one has to work. Yay!
And she wants to “get rid of cows” (how she plans to do that is unclear) because farting cows simply emit too much carbon.
She’s coming for your house, your airline travel, and your steak dinners.
As someone who has been lucky enough to enjoy a nice steak dinner on an airplane flying over an ocean, I will be giving Ocasio-Cortez’s school project an “F”.
Everything sounded great until the part about cow genocide. You can send in the feds to forcibly renovate my home, take away my gas-burning car and deny me the ability to use air travel–but you will never take my steaks away from me.
That’s where I draw the line.
In all seriousness, though, what is with these Dems and their obsession with climate change? Do they really think it’s a winning issue?
Not a single American would be willing to make these sacrifices Ocasio-Cortez is demanding. Not a single one.
Raise your hand if you want to renounce virtually all the amenities and conveniences of modernity to combat a climate “threat” that doesn’t even exist.
Nobody really cares about climate change. That’s the truth.
Lefties may claim to be Super Serious about it, but not a one of them would actually be willing to cut carbon out of their life to Fight Climate Change.
Thankfully, Ocasio’s class project that she worked really really hard on will never see the light of day. It’s too ridiculous for even Democrats.
As awful as Nancy Pelosi is, her response to Cortez’s laughable “policy proposal” was pretty funny. It was basically, “Thank you for your input, sweetie. We’re all very proud of you. Now go sit down.”
Kids do the darnedest things!
According to the Ministry of Truth and Cortez herself, she’s got us right-wingers quaking in our boots.
You sure do, honey!
