The green new deal was/is meant to promote dialog, not offer immediate solutions.
Some are incapable of dialog and have allowed themselves to be trolled by this very short document.

Liar liar pant skirt on fire. I heard AOC say we will all die in 12 years if we don't go with the Green New Deal. Her and the rest of those dooms day sayer's are obviously trying to recruit the Millennial's for the 2020 election.
The German plan for Fossil Fuel, its called; Energiewende. Here is one link to it:
Here's one link to her statement:
Here's another link to refute the 12 year doom & gloom statement:
I was reading MSN this morning and they published an article about new technology to generate heat from salt and water. Reading on down a statement is made about solar and wind and their limitations. They also publish the German conversion to Green Energy timeline and NO its not 12 years out. I love the environment but we just cant morph into new technology overnight as the entire world is working on new 'green" technology.
Here is an alternate [same story] link from AP:
Just add water: Salt battery could help renewable energy use
Phasing out nuclear, coal and gas is an ambitious undertaking for a heavily industrialized country such as Germany. The government has set a deadline to shutter all the country’s nuclear plants by 2022 and stop burning coal for electricity by 2038; gas will be a stop-gap technology until a way is found to rely wholly on renewable technology sometime around the middle of the century.
Another link, same story, different picture

The Green New Deal was never about climate or the environment.
It is a Communist Manifesto dressed up as an environmental plan.
The oceans are in serious trouble and the land and atmosphere
are poisoned.. The global temperature increases year on year.
Extreme weather is becoming common place all over the world
.........but somehow you think its a communist plot... people like you will
be the end of us... get a grip.
