  • ‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

"We are not only being disrupted by economic change, we're being disrupted by climate change", Buttigieg said.

The plan goes far beyond energy to urge national health care coverage and job guarantees, as well as improvements in education and affordable housing.

But at least one of the chief policy architects of the resolution isn't looking to make other proposals look good; he's trying to make other Democrats look bad.

The so-called Green New Deal came under fire nearly immediately from Republicans, saying it would cost trillions of dollars, would destroy the USA economy and result in huge tax increases.

The new push comes after President Trump failed to mention climate change in his State of the Union address last week.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, published the details of the "Green New Deal" proposal and a "frequently asked questions" section on February 5, then pulled them from her website on February 7. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts).

The Green New Deal includes goals like bringing greenhouse gas emissions down to net-zero within a decade and taking reliance off energy sources that are non-renewable or produce emissions.

The plan would permit existing nuclear power plants to operate but would block new nuclear plants.

The Green New Deal also calls for every building in America to be rebuilt.

Hockett was apparently referring to the series of tweets the Democratic lawmaker made on Thursday, when she posted and criticized parody versions of the Green New Deal FAQ, including one that said, effective immediately, "males should urinate into an empty milk jug instead of a toilet".

In November, when Ocasio-Cortez championed a resolution to establish a select committee in the House on a Green New Deal, Suozzi supported the effort.
