NO. The “Green New Deal” is out of touch with reality. Symbolic? Sends a message? Makes a statement? Only message here is “The lights are on, but nobody’s home.”
The GND substitutes unachievable goals by unaffordable means on wildly unrealistic timetables that will waste time and resources trying do not only the impossible, but also the overall unproductive instead of the work of real world environmental protection and preservation. The GND leverages 3 positive images — “Green”, the environment, and “New Deal” — to create its own positive image. But it is actually the kind of destructively extreme legislation that is too vague to implement, too assertive to ignore, and too sweeping to repeal. Also known as, a persistent obstruction to doing that which is within our ability for the environment because we are forced to weigh everything against the unworkable, utopian “GND”.
The GND is a weapon of mass economic destruction aimed squarely at the US and other Developed Nations.
So NO! Don’t let it see the light of day!
