    If you want to read about the Green New Deal in the lens of the 2020 election, I recommend this piece explaining Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s proposal:

    Inslee has the most ambitious climate proposals; it is, as Vox's David Roberts writes, the Green New Deal translated into policy.

    For more from the rest of the 2020 democratic field, check out the Vox policy guide:

      Why the Green New Deal doesn't work:

      1. America causes very little pollution and over the last half decade decreased American Carbon Emissions

      2. The Green New Deal only affects America and thus will not effect the global stage on climate change

      3. The GND will only throw America into another economic downturn, causing the people who don't have enough money to learn skills will lose jobs, and only some can keep them.

      4. Talk to China, India, or the other African countries that have to worry about their staving population because Democrats blocked giving food to them so the Africans could deal with their pollution. Plus China won't pass regulations on their pollution. Don't hurt America because of people who you didn't want to help, and those who don't care.

    Solar panels should be given to homeowners for free by the government. I should be able to trade my gasoline burning car for an american electric car with a huge cash incentive.

      Eugenics , Birth-Control, More manufactured Wars to give a mass kill off a romantic story. "The death rate must rise again"....“The overwhelming growth in world population caused by the positive birth-rate loop is a recent phenomenon, a result of mankind's very successful reduction of worldwide mortality. The controlling negative feedback loop has been weakened, allowing the positive loop to operate virtually without constraint. There are only two ways to restore the resulting imbalance. Either the birth rate must be brought down to equal the new, lower death rate, or the death rate must rise again.” Club of Rome in their book entitled The Limits to Growth

        HUMANS NEED TO BE PURGED. Stop reproducing. “The common enemy of humanity is man.
        In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.The real enemy then, is humanity itself." - Club of Rome

            Instead of relying on these stvpid government, why not start the change on your own? You don't need the government to switch from combustion engine vehicle to electric. You don't need them to switch your house to solar instead of buying from the grid that uses coal and oil.

              The planet has its own circle. Do not believe them. They only want ur money.

              For example if i want to make a research about Koala and get a found for it, it will be rejected.
              If i change the subject to "How Koala's sex life affects the """Enviroment""" i wil get a full found for my project and 50.000 dollars for equipment.

                Since the world's begining, it's climate has been changing. We didn't ruin it, it's the Earth's natural cycle. That being said some of the things we do don't help.

                One volcano eruption spews 100x more CO2 than all CO2 Ever produced by humans, so that just shows how little swing we have when compared to Earth's natural swing.

                  *BEYOND* CO2?
                  Also, petroleum and coal can be used to manufacture other things which is something I much rather prefer than burning it

                                  Cycle, cycle, and more cycle. The green new deal thinks it can disassemble and reassemble the American economy while saving the Earth when in reality, China and India won't do anything as dramatic. Maybe the Earth is just going through cycle

                                    We'll have to stop burning fossil fuels eventually, not because they ruin the environment(they do but stay with me), but because they are limited, they are finite. Renewables however, are unlimited(Solar, Wind, Hydro), or at least sustainable(Nuclear).

                                            They need to stop using Celsius to describe it because to the majority you are making a big problem look small. 2 degrees Celsius is 35 degrees Fahrenheit if you guys didn’t know many people only see the Celsius and think it is minuscule.

                                                This can never happen as according to stats a bill has no chance to pass if it's against big corporations and this is against every major corporation from Oil, automobiles to plastic industry. Most of the world economy works on fossil fuels, even if they manage to convince America(which is also impossible) they won't be able to convince the whole world.

                                                        Part 1: there’s a problem that requires us to hurt citizens
                                                        Part 2: we are going to extremely inflate the size of government to save citizens
                                                        No way to address the emissions of China or India, the true violators. No proof that we can even save ourselves in time. All the green new deal is Democrat’s scaring citizens into believing that they need to be hurt and saved all to inflate their own power.

                                                          China is actually more ambitious in climate protection than the US. Plus at least their leaders acknowledge climate change.

                                                          I don't think that because its the only plan that "acknowledges" the problem means it is the best plan or even a good one. He makes a great point about the havoc that would be had on the economy when changes are made this quickly. This is not a plan that will succeed. A real plan for success will need more than 14 pages and two congresspeople from deep in one corner of politics. It will take tousands of pages of economic steps for each industry and community with bi-partisan sponsors.

Why don’t we cooperate and instead of thinking we can’t do anything it’s too expensive let’s get rid of the price tags on the materials we need to go fossil fuel free and loose a bit of money but in the long run loosing a bit of money is probably worth saving the world!!

All that matters is to prepare for it. Their supporters believe in them more than the reality that’s coming soon! Things are going to get worse before they get better. That’s only when things will have to change, in the point of no return.
