    You somehow come up with the idea that people are going to be forced to give up their cars...which is not part of the legislation. You say people are going to be forced to give up air travel. Also not part of the legislation. Try being honest about what is in the legislation (as well as the fact that it is non-binding).

    there is nothing in the bill that says it will outlaw gas, oil or coal. There is nothing in the bill that would outlaw air travel. There is nothing in the bill that would pay people who are unwilling to work...and yet that is what the interviewer told people.

    ..occur without this...
    'outlaw gas, oil or coal'?

    You clearly have not read the proposal.

    I suggest you go educate yourself for once.

    I have. Please quote the passages in the legislation that actually support your allegation that oil, coal and gas will be outlawed.

    Yes, it appears the U.S. bucked the global trend.

    How? Will Exxon voluntarily shut down?

    Explain exactly how it would happen if not by force.

    So somehow you want to run away from the claim that Trump has accomplished something that led to a new mine in Pa. and when confronted with the facts you want to argue that "well, it hasn't been four years yet"?

    the goals described in subparagraphs (A) through (E) of paragraph (1) (referred to in this resolution as the ‘‘Green New Deal goals’’) should be accomplished through a 10-year national mobili- zation (referred to in this resolution as the ‘‘Green New Deal mobilization’’) that will require the fol- lowing goals and projects— ...

    So now you want to discuss the economics of clean energy and not what Cortez's legislation says. Again, there is nothing in the bill that would outlaw gas, coal or oil.

    You can call me a liar all you like. You just can't show evidence of a lie in any of my posts...so you make shit up. Wouldn't that make you a liar?

    Do tell.

    Explain to the class how you can have 100% of the power demands in the US be zero-emissions, and still use gas, oil and coal.

    This spin should be interesting.....

    A Foster Government

    That's to be expected in a republic. Electing is not voting; it is a forced choice between pre-owned candidates who will do all the voting on the issues. This takes away self-determination from us, the people. Don't blame the victims of this glorified fraud.

    No, I want you to explain why Exxon would close up shop if they are not forced to.

    GO!

    Level Thy Neighbor

    You don't realize that the Jolly Green Giant's ulterior motive is to kill jobs, lower wages, demoralize the working class, and raise the Cost of Living? That's why you don't see how handouts will be necessary if this agenda is forced on us by the GreedHeads' GreenHead classmates. The plutocratic guillotine-fodder are nothing but a tag team that needs to be toe-tagged.

    Again...the allegation was that the bill would make oil, gas and coal illegal. Where does it say that? Can you admit that it was false?

    If you want to talk about the economics of the Cortez bill, open up another thread.
