Believes In Green New Deal
Climate change is here and is happening now – and as a 22-year-old college student, about to graduate and go out into the world, I am truly terrified.
I believe in the work that youth groups and other groups around this country are doing to create a greener and cleaner world for all. Working on a campaign for renewable energy in Greensboro, has really opened my eyes to the need for greener and cleaner alternatives to the resources we use and depend on each day.
I believe that a Green New Deal will keep my fellow Americans (students, newborn babies, and more) safe from climate change and will create millions of green jobs. It is a commonsense policy that is overwhelmingly popular with American people, regardless of political party or where they live.
We, as citizens of America, need this in order to continue living on this planet. I will not stop talking about this until what needs to be done has been done.
What a SNOWFLAKE!!!
This young lady is entitled to her beliefs and opinions regardless of how misguided and misinformed they may be. I would encourage her to become better informed and less indoctrinated. Be an independent thinker, not a mindless drone.
Oh good grief! There is no reason to be terrified. Listen to my husband’s advice. Don’t fall for the liberal line. Open your eyes and learn.
She should remain in school and perhaps learn something if she pays attention.
For goodness sakes girl you NEED to get out into the world. From what I see you are the product of public education and arrogant academics shoving baseless “settled science” down your throat. Think about what they have done to you. You are now “terrified” of the weather. Why?!?! Because you believe them? Trust me. They are not worthy of your confidence in them.
Excellent response, Mr. Tweed
As an earth scientist with 40 years of experience, climate change has been with us since the earth was formed 4.5 billion years ago. The question that must be considered is if the US implemented all the ideas that the Green Deal has outlined within the time frame they are stating “what will be the overall global effect?” Is it worth the complete breakdown of the US economy? Furthermore, the Green Deal includes many social programs that are completely independent of climate change. The Green Deal is using climate change as a catalyst (carrot) that is being dangled in front of young impressionable people that have no experience in real world issues, politics or economics.
Well said, sir!
My goodness Ginger, I almost choked on my hamburger while reading about your common sense policies.
As Mr. Nelson stated, climate change has always been tweaking the 3rd rock from the sun. Hotter, colder, thousand year storms, million year storms, heck even billion year storms, drought and floods. Why do you think Minnesota boasts 10,000 lakes and not The Land of 10,000 Glaciers? Were SUV’s responsible for melting the Minnesota glaciers or was it the cow’s farts?
The sky is always falling. If this girl doesn’t die of self-imposed fear, she may live long enough to learn that not everything you hear is true, even if it comes from a professor, and especially if it comes from a politician, If Al Gore had been around near the end of the last Ice Age, he would have been running around saying, “Life as we know it on Planet Earth will cease to exist!” And he would have been right. Life as it WAS on planet Earth DID cease to exist, and the world is a better place because of it. Who’s to say that the world would not be a better place if the temperature were to go up a degree or two in the next hundred years, which is somewhat doubtful and by no means certain?
