Pete Buttigieg endorses Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-style Green New Deal

"I think there were a lot of people who said it wasn't realistic for the United States to get a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s, when President Kennedy initially outlined that goal".

During her appearance on the NPR podcast a couple of days back, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined her stance in regards to her monetary policy and how she plans to restructure the social/economic framework of the USA if her freshly proposed "Green New Deal" is passed by the senate. According to a recent December 2018 public opinion poll conducted by the Yale Program on Climate Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, 80% of registered voters surveyed support a Green New Deal, including 92% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans.

Policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, Robert Hockett, said the FAQ page was a hoax. Where is America going when major policy is being dictated by things a bartender in Queens once overheard while she was mixing drinks. "I think that we need to cut our reliance on fossil fuels", said one student.

"I like that it's progressive, that it's gonna push the world forward". He called the project "daunting" but said in a Facebook post, "The real question is, can we afford not to enact the Green New Deal?"

"I think that's drastic." the next student conceded.

"I frankly think we need to set our sights high", said the CT senator, who co-sponsored the Green New Deal resolution along with Sen. Global warming is a threat to the planet.

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.

Phillips began by asking if students supported Ocasio-Cortez's plan.
