Axios: More Media for Ocasio-Cortez Than 2020 Dem Candidates

Axios: More Media for Ocasio-Cortez Than 2020 Dem Candidates

As the FAQ debacle was unfolding, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips journeyed to the campus of the University of Miami to ask students how they felt about AOC's plan to combat climate change and, in the process, restructure the entire economy.

The odd provision seemingly requiring men to recycle their urine to be used in preparing coffee or juice was not a genuine section of the Green New Deal.

"I would like them to push it as far as they can". "Any politician who wants to be taken seriously on climate and earn the support of young people needs to support Ocasio-Cortez and Markey's resolution". "From knowing who's endorsed it and some little things, it sounds great", mused another.

"If we didn't do that, we'd be killing ourselves basically". Another added, "sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme".

"Anything that would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is really important".


Hockett was apparently referring to the series of tweets the Democratic lawmaker made on Thursday, when she posted and criticized parody versions of the Green New Deal FAQ, including one that said, effective immediately, "males should urinate into an empty milk jug instead of a toilet".

He called the project "daunting" but said in a Facebook post, "The real question is, can we afford not to enact the Green New Deal?" "I think it'd be great for us!" exclaimed one.

The ads, issued four days after Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's much-mocked New Green Deal rollout, offered more proof that Republicans plan to leverage the hotly contested climate resolution in their bid to retake the House in 2020. Among the proposals initially listed in the plan were moving away completely from oil, coal, and natural gas within ten years, creating a high-speed rail system to help eliminate air travel, and renovating every home in America.

"We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast..." the website said.
