HERE'S THE DEAL: Cortez Unveils 'Green New Deal,' Pelosi SLAMS as 'Green Dream or Whatever'
07 February, 2019, 23:02
The Green New Deal also aims to create an economic safety net for "frontline" communities that will be affected by the impacts of climate change and by a radical shift away from fossil fuel use.
A sweeping package of climate-change measures unveiled Thursday by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drew a tepid response from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who didn't explicitly throw her support behind the measure.
"The Green New Deal fully tackles the existential threat posed by climate change by presenting a comprehensive, 10-year plan that is as big as the problem it hopes to solve while creating a new era of shared prosperity", says a summary of the legislation.
The resolution introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen.
The legislation is already backed by more than 40 House Democrats, Bloomberg reports, including House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern.
The resolution is the first formal attempt by lawmakers to define the scale of legislation to create large-scale government-led investments in clean energy and infrastructure to transform the USA economy. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) are teasing the ambitious deal and set to unveil it at a Thursday afternoon press conference.

The resolution paints a grim view of present-day America, saying it is "experiencing several related crises" including declining life expectancy, economic stagnation, erosion of worker bargaining power, increasing income inequality and the exacerbation of "systemic racial, regional, social, environmental and economic injustices". Some proposals have set the goal to converting the entire USA economy to renewable energy within 12 years and eliminating the carbon footprint by 2030.
Ocasio-Cortez's ideas have also received plaudits from Justice Democrats, a progressive political action committee that has been instrumental in trying to push the Democratic Party to the left.
Pelosi told Politico in wide-ranging interview, however, that it's just a "suggestion" and one of "many" the caucus is likely to receive on green energy. The next attempt, she said, will need broader support. But she welcomes "the enthusiasm that is there".
While focusing on renewable energy, Ocasio-Cortez said the plan would include existing nuclear power plants but block new nuclear plants.
The freshman congresswoman made the remarks alongside fellow Democratic Reps.
The Green New Deal would be paid for "the same way we paid for the original New Deal, World War II, the bank bailouts, tax cuts for the rich and decades of war - with public money appropriated by Congress", Ocasio-Cortez said. "Its aspirational goals will help our country combat climate change through clean and renewable energy, create millions of new jobs in the process, and safeguard our environment for generations to come".
