Bernie Sanders has released his own version of the Green New Deal,which will cost trillions of dollars, naturally.
He also wants to get America completely off fossil fuels, which is just not realistic.
The Daily Caller reports:
‘End Of Discussion’: Bernie Sanders Says We’re Going To Stop Using Coal, Gasoline
2020 candidate and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders said that the United States has to stop using gasoline and coal, and that “there ain’t no middle ground” on the issue.
“It is no secret that we must transition away from fossil fuels, period. End of discussion. There ain’t no middle ground…There is no middle ground,” Sanders said during a speech Thursday in California.
The Independent Vermont senator released a climate plan Thursday modeled after the “Green New Deal” that called for $16 trillion in new spending to fight climate change.
A key part of the plan is “Justice for frontline communities,” which refers to “under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund.”
Sanders’ plan, which is modeled as a “Green New Deal,” also targets “environmental racism.”
Of course, like AOC’s Green New Deal, this is really all about socialism.
Sen. Sanders’ Green New Deal plan dismisses nuclear energy and does not mention any sort of provision to deal with China and India’s carbon footprint, in case you were wondering how seriously you should take his proposal.https://t.co/xJ7jliyEd4

I want to live in a world with as much money available as Bernie Sanders believes is available. Because that sounds awesome.https://t.co/9uXe9G98q9

Crazy Bernie's "Green New Deal" (i.e. old socialist delusion) calls for a "wholesale transformation of our society"

Bernie’s plan is probably going nowhere fast.
He just wants the media attention.
