What is the Green New Deal?

“When President Donald Trump opted to pull out of the Paris Accord, his decision was met by new cries for environmental control and the formation of the Green New Deal.”

“As developed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Edward Markey, the Green New Deal contained a list of goals for America to achieve within a span of ten years. They included (1) a ban on all fossil fuel; (2) the elimination of nuclear energy; (3) the outlawing of combustion-engine vehicles, such as gasoline-fueled cars, trucks, and airplanes; (4) the replacement of air travel with railroad service; (5) the guarantee of jobs that would provide a “family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and a pension” for all Americans; (6) a ban on beef, since “farting cows” represented a health hazard;31 and (7) free college education for all, even those who lack an aptitude for academics”
