“I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called ‘Carbon Footprint’ to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military — even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!” “There are multiple doctored GND (Green New Deal) resolutions and FAQs floating around. There was also a draft version that got uploaded + taken down. There’s also draft versions floating out there. Point is, the real one is our submitted resolution, H.Res. 109.” No one is proposing to “eliminate all planes, cars, cows, oil, gas and the military.” No one created “doctored” versions of the Green New Deal that included these outlandish proposals.

POLITICS 02/07/2019 06:10 am ET Updated 5 minutes ago It's a historic first step toward curbing planet-roasting emissions and ending worsening inequality. By Alexander C. Kaufman The Green New Deal is finally taking form. On Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) unveiled a landmark resolution cementing the pillars of an unprecedented program to zero out planet-warming emissions and restore the middle-class prosperity of postwar America that the original New Deal helped spur.
