Ocasio-Cortez: 'I'm the boss'

But there's no doubt the resolution introduced by Sen.

"The Green New Deal had a rocky roll out, but it can have a positive impact in terms of shaping the discussion", Reed wrote in a statement.

McConnell said he plans to force a vote on the Green New Deal some time before August recess.

"We're waiting to see what McConnell wants to do". Durbin said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

Pelosi said that House Democrats and committee leaders would be more keen on crafting actual legislation to combat climate change and other issues incorporated in the Green New Deal, rather than the resolution-which in its current form, is nonbinding.

We need a network of students and workers - as well as Indigenous activists, who have always led on environmental justice, most recently in battles against new pipelines - to build mass assemblies, protests and strikes for a Green New Deal. With insufficient support from Republicans and moderate Democrats, the bill as stands is nearly certain to fail in the Senate. The non-binding resolution calls for a World War II-style mobilization to achieve "net-zero" greenhouse gas emissions within 10 years. "That's where we should be going to reduce our carbon footprint and also hopefully developing more clean energy".

Hostin also pressed Sanders on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's recent suggestion that couples are rightfully hesitant to have children because of the threat of climate change.

Presidential candidate and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee.

After outcry from several groups that said it was simply a watered-down version of the original "Green New Deal", Feinstein said she would make changes (E&E News PM, Feb. 26). But curiously enough, this planned vote was met with outrage from the very people claiming to champion the proposal.

The list of policy goals from Markey and Ocasio-Cortez is still causing some sticky debates on the House side, as well.

House Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., last week said that after he read the resolution, he asked Markey, "What the heck is this?" A polite legislative campaign for the Green New Deal isn't going to cut it - these people are literally making money from killing the planet and dooming humankind.

McConnell panned specific parts of the bill on upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to be green compliant, meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States without fossil fuels, and building out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary. He'll then turn their ideas into a spending blueprint. "It's a diversion. It's a sham", Schumer said.

"The games they are playing here will have no meaning".
