The Green New Deal is not the nightmare, ignoring it will be - 02-19


I can agree the proposed Green New Deal has flaws and will need to be fine-tuned. We do have to remember this is a resolution proposal, not an actual legislative bill. The recommendations, in this resolution, will be developed into bills for Congress to voice their acceptance or not, with their votes. Those politicians, in both parties, who have been in Congress for years and funded by oil, gas, and manufacturing corporations have been derelict in their duties to protect their constituents. For years, the fight to protect jobs, the environment, and the people has been mostly a case of a lot of talk but no action. Whether you believe in climate change and/or global warming really isn’t the issue any longer. The issue is the simple fact that right now America has the largest amount of oil and gas reserves we’ve ever had, but they are finite products.
