Republicans mock Green New Deal: 'It's loony'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

According to a recent December 2018 public opinion poll conducted by the Yale Program on Climate Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, 80% of registered voters surveyed support a Green New Deal, including 92% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans.

While Cortez did not specify an exact valuation for her latest Green New Deal, she did add that the amount required would be "incomprehensibly large".

The environmental and economic proposal from congressional Democrats is being welcomed by GOPers who say the ambitious plan is so vague, yet so extreme, that it will backfire on Dems.

"I frankly think we need to set our sights high", said the CT senator, who co-sponsored the Green New Deal resolution along with Sen.

The 29-year old career bartender turned lead architect and brainchild of the Democrat party recently told the world, it will end in 12 years if she doesn't act now, and act she has, like a fool.

The bottleneck has caused problems for PDVSA to continue producing and refining oil without imported diluents and components. The joint ventures foreign partners include Norway's Equinor ASA, U.S. -based Chevron Corp and France's Total SA.

"We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than 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", Ocasio-Cortez said. Global warming is an existential threat to the planet.

Although there isn't an official cost estimate on the Green New Deal, several columnists have put together loose appraisals based on the estimated costs of some component pieces.
