It wasn’t long after Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled her absurd “Green New Deal” that the plan’s page was removed from her website.
The summary FAQ listed numerous laughable, if not terrifying, calls for outrageous changes to the U.S. energy sector.
The plan detailed requiring all jobs be unionized and make free money available for the unemployed. It called for the end air travel, nuclear energy and fossil fuels. It even wants to “fully get rid of farting cows.”
A passage of the plan is overwhelmingly delusional. One segment reads, “it’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years.” The massive undertaking of decommissioning a single nuclear power plant would take more than 10 years, removing them all is simply nonsense.
It’s easy to see that the amount of backlash Ocasio-Cortez received was simply too much. Best to just take the plan down and try again with the next crazy liberal waste of time.
