Yes. And clean energy sources are good policy


but the Green New Deal is not actionable policy TODAY, because the technology of renewables
(or the rare earth mineral supplies) isn't capable of producing the amount of reliable, affordable energy our modern economy requires.

If the Green New Deal had nuclear as part of the plan, it would be much more realistic.

I've lived in Colorado for most of my 59 years, save for 4 years in Missouri and a year in Orange County, CA.

As a middle school kid at West Middle School in the early 1970's, I have vivid memories of the Brown Cloud literally rolling across the front range North to South and obscuring the view of Mt Evans in about 10 minutes.

That doesn't happen anymore despite millions more residents in Colorado.

The US has recently lowered greenhouse emissions more than any other developed country.

I don't buy into the extreme hysteria that we have 12 years or whatever because when humans get hysteric, history has proven humans were wrong.

If the Big Banks, Developers, etc. really believed that coastal areas will be underwater due to climate change, there would be no lending or other development along the ocean because people don't purposefully lose money.

Instead, Nancy Pelosi and Barrack Obama have mansions, literal feet from the ocean.

They wouldn't be flying private planes or spending millions on ocean front properties if they truly believed the hysteria the world as embraced.
