It's a big fat farce. A large portion of it doesn't even have anything to do with "green energy." It would also put MILLIONS of people out of work, which would cause mass protests and rioting. Maybe even lynchings.
First off, almost nothing has been done to improve solar, wind, and other "clean" energy in the past 40 years. To this day, solar panels can only absorb visible light, whereas, if they could absorb other areas of the electromagnetic spectrum, then they could be just as useful at night to gather the energy we need. Ground-based windmills have also proven not to be reliable as sources of energy, because even in the windiest areas of the US, wind is not steady. A better solution would be those special balloons with fins on them and wires connecting them to a transformer station on the ground, and they can give off radio signals as well as have warning lights on them to steer small craft away. The wind at higher altitudes is MUCH steadier and could provide 3x as much energy as our ground-based wind farms produce.
As it is now, none of those sources produces the amount of electricity your average American uses in the US currently. In fact, our chief sources of electricity comes from nuclear, coal, and natural gas plants.
Cortez doesn't know anything about where the electricity for her darling, expensive apartment comes from, nor does she have a clue about economics, where much of our pollution comes from, how much we produce compared to other countries, or what the consequences of her stupid deal would bring about.
It was so absurd, it was laughed out of the House the moment it was presented. She even had to take it down from online and claim that Republican pranksters had been the ones to post it, she was so humiliated by people's reaction to it.
I can't wait for this moron to quit her job.
“I can't wait for this moron to quit her job.” Not happening anytime soon. She and the other moron, anti-Israel, anti-U.S.Omar (who should be kissing the American soil she’s walking on) are being very useful to Pelosi. Why? They are taking the heat off Pelosi. They love the limelight and the media loves them because they hate Trump. What is a rarity, far left Democrat Governor Coumo who just signed a pro-infanticide bill and bragging about it, blasted the inane Cortez’s animosity toward Amazon....well, sorta reminds me of rats on a sinking ship! Surprisingly, it’s the Republicans who usually eat their own.
We have three Democrat Virginia politicians who should be gone...aren’t. Rep. Steve King makes bigoted remarks and he’s raked over the coals! A Republican congressman sticks his hand under a men’s room stall wall and he’s ousted out of congress. The Dems had a Grand Wizard of the Klan in a leadership position. He wasn’t tarred and feathered! A Dem. Senator was responsible for the drowning death of an intern, but continued on as usual wearing a fake neck brace.
On the other hand, AOC has been kind of a gift to the Republicans, despite the fact that she is supposed to be the Democraps' last hope. Everyone sees how dumb and delusional she is, and their opinions of her party sink so low that they are bound not only laugh at her and her party, but even less people will vote for them in the next elections.
I mean, who wants to vote for someone who steals jobs, thinks attorneys and lawyers are two separate types of people, can't even name the 3 branches of government, and thinks "farting cows" are the enemies of humanity?
I do hope you are correct, but folks voted for her. She has a big mouth that spews promises and ignorance. I hope Amazon stays away from her district. There are so many states who would welcome Amazon and the jobs. I live in Mississippi and we would celebrate Amazon’s move here. AOC not only lost those jobs, but the small businesses which would start up.
Ha!😂 I missed her remark about attorneys and lawyers being separate types of people! Also, didn’t we have a WW2?
"can't even name the 3 branches of government, and thinks "farting cows" are the enemies of humanity? "
She wasn't referring to the three branches, and mocking "farting cows" shows how little you understand. You just make fun because it sounds funny. Deliberate ignorance.
these fascists are always talking to each other how stupid to spend trillions of dollars and lives about the lies but you never do anything for the public
