Students Love AOC's Green New Deal, Till They Hear About Its Goals

  • ‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

As the FAQ debacle was unfolding, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips journeyed to the campus of the University of Miami to ask students how they felt about AOC's plan to combat climate change and, in the process, restructure the entire economy.

Bring on the "Green New Deal", some Republicans say.

Want to see what else they had to say? "I like that it's gonna push the world forward to where we need to be", another said.

"Just from knowing, like, who's endorsed it and some, like, other little things, it sounds great".

Brexit: Theresa May Begging MPs for More Time to Amend Her 'Deal'
MPs may not be given a vote on a revised version of Theresa May's Brexit deal this month, a minister has said . The UK and Switzerland have signed a deal to continue trading after Brexit as they did before it.

That figure appeared to be based on a survey conducted in December, two months before the release of the Green New Deal resolution by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, was funded by a handful of liberal foundations, including anti-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer's TomKat Foundation.

"Sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme". "I think it'd be great for us!" exclaimed one. Supporters include five high-profile presidential contenders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and, most recently, Amy Klobuchar.

"Anything that would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is really important", agreed another.

The FAQ said that the Green New Deal will provide "Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work". But I think the Democrats pushing the deal would agree with Senator Graham: "Let's vote on the Green New Deal!" Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) explained in a video on Friday, is intentionally written as a broad prescription rather than detailed legislation, its demands for transforming the USA economy and energy system away from fossil fuels are unequivocal, as is its call to "promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth".
