San Antonio Cooks Up Its Own “Green New Deal”

May 16, 2019 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The recent defeat of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” in Congress may have given some the impression that her grandiose and bizarre scheme to transform the United States into a green Utopia was finished, once and for all. Nothing could be further from the truth. While […]

Beto’s Two-Headed Climate Change Fallacy

May 8, 2019 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Rising star presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has put out his own version of the Green New Deal. It is milder than AOC’s monstrosity but it is still a multi-trillion dollar monstrosity. Unlike the GND, and perhaps wisely, Beto’s fantastical blueprint has no name. In the interest of simplicity, let’s just […]

Happer Versus AOC: A Telling Contrast

April 24, 2019 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is by far the best known climate change alarmist today, having way surpassed Al Gore for that title. Gore is now something of a has-been in the fame department. On the other side, Will Happer is far and away the best known skeptic (not counting President Trump, […]

By Kevin Mooney ~ A self-described army of young people devoted to climate change activism are taking their show on the road to build support for national Democrats’ Green New Deal and to counter business interests that favor fossil fuel use.

Senate Rude Awakening For Green New Dreamers

April 3, 2019 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ The terrifyingly naïve socialist Green New Deal (GND) proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offers the best example I can think of why 16-year-olds shouldn’t be given the right to vote. It’s not so much that I fear that Congress would actually succeed in enacting legislation to replace all fossil energy with windmills […]

America’s Past Shows Why Socialism Won’t Work

April 3, 2019 by

1

By Kay Coles James (President of The Heritage Foundation) ~ Socialism is trending in America. Politicians once ran from the term; now more embrace it. And polls show younger people are favoring it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., won a seat in Congress by promising free health care for all, free college tuition, and something called […]

Green New Deal Fails In The Senate

March 28, 2019 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The Green New Deal was designed to “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War II.” That’s how Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fact sheet pitched the plan. Yesterday it was shot down 57-0 by the Senate.  The entire Republican caucus and three Democrats voted against […]

By Rachel del Guidice ~ The Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected Democrats’ so-called Green New Deal, touted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a way of combating climate change. The vote was 57-0 against proceeding to debate, with 42 Democrats and one independent voting “present.” Among other things, the Green New Deal would require significant […]

Green New Deal Has New Cheerleader: Jorge Ramos

March 20, 2019 by

1

By Jorge Bonilla ~ Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a rehash of recurring tropes, but also features a strange apologia for radical liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as well as the distinct odor of censorship. Ramos’ column, titled “The Green Dream”, is arguably one of the first (if not the first) on-the-record […]

Debate Green New Deal To Lay Its Nonsense To Rest

March 13, 2019 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ Uber-left lunacy has launched climate hysteria and fossil fuel replacement fantasies to record stratospheric levels. Such clueless fictions are being trumpeted to advocate policies which would have disastrous consequences to our national economic and social well-being. A growing public awakening to the transparent ignorance and socialist agendas driving this craziness make […]

Sierra Club Abandons Environment To Push Industrial Wind And Solar

March 11, 2019 by

1

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mary Kay Barton ~ Governor Andrew Cuomo and the far left’s latest darling, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, are “all in”for Big Wind. Indeed, Cortez lauded ‘Green New Deal‘ would entail industrializing vast swaths of rural-residential New York State with huge (bird-killing) industrial wind and solar factories, all while pushing an end to […]

By Larry Bell ~ Over the next 10 years, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., supported by at least eight prospective 2020 presidential Democratic-Socialist candidates and 40 acolyte lawmakers, plans to eliminate fossil fuels; make air travel obsolete using bullet trains; upgrade or replace every building in America to ensure energy efficiency; and ensure “economic security for […]

The True Meaning Of That Green New Deal

February 14, 2019 by

1

By Lee Edwards ~ It would be easy to dismiss the Green New Deal as an impossible progressive dream, but that would be a mistake. The Green New Deal is not the bucket list of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow travelers, but a blueprint to turn America into a socialist state. It is the […]

NYT Heds, Beyond Parody: ‘Lawmaker’s Staff Flubs Green New Deal Plan, And G.O.P. Pounces’

February 13, 2019 by

1

By Clay Waters ~ It’s almost predictable at this point: Democrats embarrass themselves, and the media frames it not as a Democratic error, but as a case of cynical Republicans “pouncing” to take political advantage. The latest example was a brief New York Times story on the thoroughly botched embarrassment that was the launch of […]

California’s High-Speed Rail Failure Shows The Insanity Of Green New Deal

February 13, 2019 by

3

By David Ditch ~ Even California can’t apparently support high-speed rail. Just a few hundred miles of high-speed rail in California was well on its way to exceeding $100 billion in costs by the time of completion. As a result, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that the state will be massively shrinking the project. “Let’s […]

The Green New Deal Would Take Us Back To Medieval Times

February 11, 2019 by

2

By Ron Stein ~ A hopeful, non-binding resolution has been introduced to both houses of Congress. Representative Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, (D) for the 14th District of New York, god bless her fast beating heart, and Senator Ed Markey (D) from Massachusetts are jump starting again the notion that the world can change in its entirety in […]

Media Misses: The Embrace Of The Green New Deal

February 10, 2019 by

0

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Democrats unveiled their latest version of the Green New Deal on Thursday, but despite some concessions to reality, this version is still little more than socialism masked as environmental policy. But that didn’t stop the media from fawning all over it. Where was the fact-checking when you needed it? Most media […]

Evening News Shows Ignore Crazy Socialist Green New Deal

February 9, 2019 by

1

By Julia A Seymour ~ Going “green” will require a lot of green, apparently. Two U.S. legislators have a proposal designed to require substantial changes to every building in the U.S., create rail “at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” replace all “combustion engine-vehicles” within a decade, and guarantee everyone a “job,” higher education, […]

The Green New Deal Is A Leftist Politician’s Worst Enemy

February 9, 2019 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The wacky Green New Deal has two features which, taken together, will make it a nightmare for Democrats in the upcoming national elections. First, it is a wonderful wish list of goals the Democrats hold dear. But second, the actions it calls for are impossible. In particular, they would be […]

NYT, Wash Post Promote ‘Ambitious’ Green New Deal, Minimize Criticism

January 18, 2019 by

2

By Julia A Seymour ~ The Green New Deal concept is the latest rage among progressives and the media that love them. In this case, that would include The Washington Post and New York Times. The Post’s promotions included bringing up the “smart” and “enormously popular” Green New Deal in at least 21 news or opinion […]

The Wacky “Green New Deal”

January 11, 2019 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Most of what has been said about the proposed Green New Deal (GND) has been pretty vague and very hyperbolic, but there are some specifics available. One of the holy texts at this point is a 36 page proposal from the Dataforprogress.org think tank. This report provides hundreds of specific […]

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ready to tax the rich to make her Green New Deal a reality. “People are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes,” the recently elected New York Democrat told TV show “60 Minutes” in an interview set to air Sunday. Speaking of prior […]
