    If you want to read about the Green New Deal in the lens of the 2020 election, I recommend this piece explaining Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s proposal: Inslee has the most ambitious climate proposals; it is, as Vox's David Roberts writes, the Green New Deal translated into policy. For more from the rest of the 2020 democratic field, check out the Vox policy guide: - Alvin

    It’s impossible. We can’t completely phase out fossil fuels, we can’t upgrade every single building in the country to meet the requirements, we can’t completely phase out non electric vehicles, we can’t destroy our economy, we can’t become carbon neutral, we can’t do every last thing it says within just 10 years. It’s impossible. It’s a good idea, but it’s just simply not possible.

    I bet she’s your hero my question is how come no one‘s talking about 5G and how dangerous it is to the environment killing birds plants animals why is nobody talking about the chemicals they spray in the air that are hurting the plants that we need to eat and feed ourselves. Why are we not talking about how our water is toxic full of Fluoride and other dangerous chemicals that are dumped into our water killing our whole ecosystem this is more dangerous than anything else but no one ‘s talking about it. Why ? Why do we look away on these topics I don’t need 5G. This is more dangerous than oil or anything else but no one wants to talk about it It really needs to be discussed because everything‘s been affected

    There seems to be a couple of information assumptions and misdirects. Like why did the chart only show from 1980 forward? I would like to see a chart from as far back as possible. Because, in history, climate change has been happening long before fossil fuels. Populations have been exterminated or migrated because of climate change. And I never hear anyone say what part the geoengineering of the sky plays a part. Why is that? I really want to know. And how about the new building techniques that make it possible to live completely off the grid!!! It is real. No water bill, no electric bill, no gas bill. Freedom...but that means we would keep our own money instead of forking it over like the machine is used to. The green new deal just seems like a way to slip in and keep everyone dependent, just on new different methods.

    you can’t make green energy with green energy... you plan to replace every single building in the us with green energy, well where are we going to get all of the resources for that? mining with machines that require gasoline? let’s not forget the current infancy green energy is still in. oh, guess were also just ignoring the fact China and India produce leagues more of carbon emissions than the US?

    No, the United States produces roughly 15% of the world's CO2. India (8%) and China (20%) in combination produce 28% of the world's carbon while having a populations of over a billion people each. The United States has 340 million. Stop deflecting blame to other countries rather than acknowledging that the United States IS a massive producer, especially for our population and can help to set the trend for a clean future.

    The Green new deal shows democrats can't think and chew gum at the same time eg: resolution 1: "Ban all fossil fuels" then goes on about making all buildings energy efficient! why? the power isn't coming from fossil fuels anymore, its all green energy. Building energy efficiency is now only to save on power costs eg: If I double glaze/insulate will I ever get a return on my investment.

Or maybe some people don't want to leave their Starbucks coffee behind. *Vox* videos are all lies. AOC is just a socialist who will destroy the world just like other socialists of the past. Underdeveloped countries are steadily growing. So this is the latest strategy to cut short their growth. Close industries and let the people starve by cutting down the economy of countries who were oppressed for their resources for decades. Please don't underestimate human intelligence. We will go on living. Maybe without the trimmings and trapping of superficial western culture but the purging will benefit society.

The citizens, have to sacrifice their standard of living for a period of time and the government has to sacrifice money but are too greedy to do such. idk i could be wrong

    So engineer here, even if we transition somehow to zero emissions the climate changes won't suddenly stop. If anything we should be preparing our infrastructure for the new climate and increasing coast lines. I'm sorry but I don't think it's possible to change from oil anytime soon maybe 150 years but it's difficult because oil products are extremely energy rich and most of our infrastructure depends on oil and I don't mean financially I mean our energy needs are so rooted into oil that it makes invading lands for oil really justified. But if you'd like a more hopeful outlook I think it's within the realm of possibility to anticipate the disasters and be more prepared than any country and then perhaps afterwards we can revisit trying to find a more long term goal with other major polluting nations. The money isn't the problem it's mostly technological limitations that may never be met unless we apply the solution in such a way that would be as saturated as gas stations are common in cities and throughout the United States

    Still... In an economic system where companies seek to limit their production costs (“cost efficiency”) in order to maximize profits and remain competitive against other producers, what structural incentive exists to keep human beings employed, in the wake of an emerging technological condition where the majority of jobs can now be done more cheaply and effectively by machine automation ? $O, can we resolve these three questions logically without realizing the need to remove the Market Economy ? No. A resource-based economy is what is needed. Natural laws, the scientific method, not subjective opinions and BS

    I mean, why can't the economy experience a transition along with the Green New Deal? Throughout history, people have lost and gained new jobs as new historical and technological developments occur.

    @Skii459 Fml according to you I said that "people losing jobs is a good thing" and that is not at all what I said. That's just what you got out of my comment. It is clear that I am specifically making reference to jobs in the coal industry here , and that's why I mentioned there's potential for a transition in the economy, something that is totally normal and part of human history. You just didn't pay attention to that.

    @Andrew Valle That's the purpose of the term "social democracy". When you say "socialism", people think of the government seizing control of the means of production and private property. In theory it's suppose to be collective ownership by the people, but it just ends up in a dictatorship. That's why the word makes people nervous - and rightly so. When you say that Denmark and Norway are socialist, you are misrepresenting what actual socialism looks like. Having socialized health care and state funded education is not socialism.
