Just saw a report of the cost for every American... 600,000$ per family in 10 years. The whole thing is a ridiculous ruse and the real goal behind it is as always redistribution of income. They want to saddle every with
This. I suspect the whole “retrofitting every building” is more about smart grids and smart meters which control how much electricity every American can use. It’s Agenda 21 rationing.
This article agrees with me

owards the goal. I warned that under Smart Growth programs now taking over every city in the nation that single-family homes are a target for elimination, to be replaced by high-rise stack and pack apartments in the name of reducing energy use. That will include curfews on carbon heating systems, mandating they be turned off during certain hours. Heating oil devises will become illegal. Gradually, energy use of any kind will be continually reduced. The Green New Deal calls for government control of every single home, office and factory to tear down or retrofit them to comply with massive environmental energy regulations.

I mean, she's not wrong.

We're already either rapidly approaching or have passed the point of no return when it comes to pre-industrial age global warming. We have to implement major and significant global changes right now to even try to leave a future for the children of this country and planet.
This is where you and Ocasio are both wrong..... scientifically, we are in a cooling phase due to
A quiescent solar cycle known as a grand solar minimum. This is what has produced the polar vortex which dropped down over the northeast recently. It’s not from c02. The whole co2 thing has been misrepresented.

That makes sense because there's no other way to power America without some form of organic (aka fossil) fuels.

I love how people keep saying that this is supposed to 'save' our children... no, it's supposed to take our children back to pre-industrialization times, when people didn't live as long because they had to deal with the elements and wild animals without adequate defense. Hell, compared to how we had to live when I was young, I have a cushy life right now... I have a heat pump, whereas we had to rely on a wood fireplace back then. Every winter morning the house was cold until someone got up and stoked (sometimes lit) the fire. Then the whole family would huddle around the heater shivering.

In the heat of the summer, we had one small window AC unit that simply couldn't keep up. We used fans and open windows for air flow and dressed light.

When we drove somewhere, we did so in an old vehicle that had no power windows, heated seats, automatic transmission, or any of the other niceties we have today. Dad's truck was a '66 GMC pickup, which wouldn't go over 55 mph without over-revving the motor, and when making a turn, the first two turns of the steering wheel didn't count.

When weather approached, we didn't get alerts on the TV (until it had already passed) or the computer (what was a computer?) or the phone (the big black box with a rotary dial plugged into the wall). We walked outside and looked at the sky to see what was coming and took appropriate action.

There was no 911. If someone got hurt, we picked them up and drove them to the hospital. usually, though, we just called the family doctor and he told us what we needed to do over the phone until he could get there (yes, he made house calls, and he also answered his phone in the middle of the night). We could also afford to pay the doctor, without an insurance card, even though we were pretty poor.

Even today, I watch people from the cities move in here and try to survive this 'hard' life out in the country. 90% of them can't cut it; there's no pizza delivery and no cable TV. Emergency services are too far away and too slow to respond. So they stay a few months and they move back to the city in disgust and someone else buys the house. Wash, rinse, repeat. And that's now, when we have satellite TV and Internet, cell phone towers, and nice automobiles. They still can't cut it. What do you think will happen when all that technology is cut because there isn't enough power to run everything? I swear, people will commit suicide over not having constant contact with the outside world! This program, if implemented, will make transportation difficult and expensive at least, cause rolling blackouts and energy rationing, cause epidemic death and disease from exposure, increase crime rates nation-wide, and reduce communication for the majority of people. It will be much worse than when I was young; that was only like 50 years ago. This program will set us back 100 years at least.

But people still beg for all this wonderful stuff they build their lives around to go away, because their favorite liar on the TV said they should... and call others stupid for not wanting to go along with the lies.

This is hyperbolic nonsense. Even if the climate is spiraling out of control (which it isn't) then nothing we do in the USA will change it for the planet. What we can do is adapt, not hand over control to a government that can't even run 'Cash For Clunkers' without running out of money in less than 1/3 the time anticipated.

I suggest read up on what it really is about instead of blindly listening to right wing media without doing your own homework.

The Facts on the ‘Green New Deal’




The text of the legislation, which is a nonbinding resolution, lays out a broad vision for how the country might tackle climate change over the next decade, while creating high-paying jobs and protecting vulnerable communities.


You're assuming that we haven't read the text of it. I think most of us have. We still disagree.

Actually it isn't a new proposal. The idea came from Roosevelt. AOC just added a few extras to it.


Wait---didn't someone just claim that millennials are better or more educated than all of us old farts?

Roosevelt?

Really?

The Green New Deal (GND) is a set of proposed economic stimulus programs in the United States that aim to address climate change and economic inequality. The name refers to the New Deal, a set of social and economic reforms and public works projects undertaken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression.[5] The Green New Deal combines Roosevelt's economic approach with modern ideas such as renewable energy and resource efficiency.[6] A previous policy similar to the Green New Deal was the 2008 tax incentive for solar panels.

Lol. Yes, I'm aware of what the "New Deal" was. They still taught history when I was in school.

Anyhow, to say, "she just added a few extras to it" is...ridiculous. The only really New-Dealish thing about the GND is its promise to provide jobs...somehow. The rest of it has nothing to do with the actual New Deal.

Here's a history lesson on the New Deal, what bills were part of it, and what they did.

Here's the full text of the "Green New Deal."

It's not AOC "adding a few extras" to Roosevelt's bundle of bills (which, incidentally, were aimed at ending the Great Depression. *Spoiler alert--it didn't work. It took another batch of legislation over the next several years, but it left us with a lot of fun stuff like crop subsidies).

No. It's disingeniously co-opting the name of a bunch of historic legislation that people still have warm fuzzy feelings about (even though most of them really don't know what it was, for sure) and tacking it onto this socialist's wet dream of a resolution.

STUDY FROM FORMER CBO DIRECTOR SAYS, (Drum-roll...…..)


The sweeping "Green New Deal" proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., could cost as much as $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household, according to a new study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

The sobering and staggering cost estimate came as Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris pointedly declined in an interview broadcast Sunday to put a price tag on the Green New Deal and "Medicare-for-all," saying "it's not about a cost," but rather return on investment.

The Green New Deal's botched rollout included the release of an official document by Ocasio-Cortez's office that promised economic security even for those "unwilling to work," and called for the elimination of "farting cows" and air travel.

I also suspect they are using the term “retrofitting” now because people are already familiar with the terms “smart grid” and “smart meters” and already know it’s about Agenda 21. What else could “retrofitting “ be ?

That's normal. I have realized for years now... decades, actually... that the goal of the DNC and a substantial percentage of the GOP is to get their agendas passed any way they have to. One of those ways is to continually rework their wording to mean the same thing, but to sound more palatable to the public. If they want socialism, they'll just rename it to "Democratic Socialism"... not the same thing as socialism, but rather a new and exciting ideology that will benefit everyone (except the rich) and be a new Utopia... never mind that the actual policies are the same as plain old socialism.

It's almost as bad as back when gas went outrageously expensive and everyone was complaining about the high cost of a fill-up... I actually heard one politician (can't remember her name) suggest we mandate smaller gas tanks to "fix the problem."

While I don’t know much about her beyond the Amazon HQ2, that is plenty enough to see that this person is economically ignorant enough to be very dangerous. I can more than speak to her irresponsible assault on Amazon and the deal that would have brought thousands of jobs and BILLIONS of continuous revenues to her constituents. WTF was she thinking? Worried that big, bad, Amazon wasn’t paying enough taxes or getting too good a deal? That kind of short sighted, “Ready! FIRE! Aim!” Mentality has cost her district literally billions of dollars in not only direct revenues, but also:
1. Thousands of jobs that won’t materialize
2. Thousands of new businesses needed to support Amazon’s huge community footprint, such as restaurants, shopping centers, shipping infrastructure, home construction (new & renovations), etc.
3. Vastly expanded community services, real estate developers, city planners to conceive, develop, build, & manage the huge infrastructure needed to support the tremendous influx of peripheral and support businesses, with their employees and families who will, in turn, need everything mentioned above plus (and this is only the major items off the top of my head...) additional schools, expanded healthcare, and especially BETTER EDUCATED POLITICIANS who didn’t miss class when they taught economics 101.
4. Many structures adjacent to and near the proposed Amazon site that are currently deflated or worthless would have rebounded and recovered; instead there are many areas within this district that will remain worthless unless AOC can pull another MEGADEAL like Amazon’s directly out of her ass.

How could one inexperienced, FRESHMAN Congresswoman, still trying to find her way to the executive ladies room, have such a bloated ego this early in her soon-to-be-imploded career that she leads trusting, albeit disinformed and TRUSTING constituents down the primrose path to financial disaster?

The Amazon fiasco can be viewed as nothing short of betrayal. The campaign to assasinate the Bezos offer was so illogical in concept that it’s hard to understand how the author arrived at her horrendous conclusions. It would be a safe wager to bet that this will wind up as a case study in more than one text book, serving as a warning to wanna-be politicos with over-sized egos, blind ambitions, and delusions of adequacy, but without the brains, education, nor wisdom to even understand the job description.

The most unfortunate part of the whole thing? The worst victims are the very people she was supposed to represent and SERVE as an ally; someone WORTHY of their TRUST. Someone CAPABLE of understanding the facts of the Amazon deal AS PRESENTED, and then weighing the pros and cons of the deal WITHOUT PERSONAL BIAS, but instead considering only the welfare of the constituents she was elected to represent. Lastly, someone who could accurately translate and interpret that deal into layman’s terms, so as to reach as many as possible and equip them with accurate, objective facts from which to make their own decisions on the merits of Amazon’s offer (instead of the short-sighted, illogical opinion of a political neophyte). Most of those people affected will continue to live their lives as they lived them before, many of whom may never understand just how much they lost, all because of the stupidity of one political hack, who will hopefully leave office before her wisdom bankrupts Manhattan.

She's not terrifying, she's just unintelligent. What she says is akin to me promising time machines for everyone if I'm elected and when asked how, I tell them that I'll let the government worry about how.

Just walk outside. It's either record breaking cold temperatures or it's warmer than normal. All due to global warming no matter how you look at it. I mean, come on man, her IQ can't be higher than mid 70's. Low 80's at the max.
