  4. A tax payer funded program of that magnitude will double our national debt, and bankrupt our middle class. If we were a debt free nation, maybe. The way we stand today, 23 trillion dollars in debt, this will result in economic disaster.

  14. Trump’s lack of concern for the environment is why it’s needed. But certainly the corporate arm of the Democrats would like it to go away….too bad!

  19. Media always shills for empire. The green new deal is neither unaffordable nor crazy. What’s crazy is not acting in the face of certain disaster. It’s way past too late to stage off climate change. But we can still keep the planet somewhat habitable. Maybe. Of course an unprecedented consensus of scientists could be wrong. NOT. Look up insect deaths on google folks. The basis of our food chain is being destroyed. Without insects there are no birds. And many other things. If ocean plankton go the way of insects there will be no more fish. As it is fish populations are stressed beyond words. This past year, virtually no salmon were caught wild in Scotland. It’s already underway. But by all means, keep posting those idiotic memes about cow farts. I mean who cares? We’ll be dead when NYC is underwater. Maybe. AOC and other young people will have to live in the world we are ruining. So yeah, they care. As should we all.
