Green New Deal: Fact versus Fiction – John Stoessel

Video – The new energy economy “is magical thinking.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal proposes to save the planet. It calls for the United States to reduce carbon emissions to zero in 10 years.

Yes, you read that right ! ZERO carbon emissions in just ten years !!!!
.

.
James Meigs, former editor of Popular Mechanics, tells Stoessel, “That’s a goal you could only imagine possible if you have no idea how the energy economy works or how energy is produced in this country.”

So-called ‘green energy’ is anything but green.

Are electric cars the way to go?

Most people don’t realize that most of America’s electricity – by far – comes from coal and natural gas.

Nuclear looks to be the solution, but people are afraid of it. That fear is unnecessary.

“More people have died falling off roofs installing solar panels than in the entire history of nuclear power in entire U.S.”

“They (the Green New Deal proponents) want to impoversh all of humanity.”

Who would be hurt the most? Poor people. Energy and food would cost more. Meanwhile, it would give money to wealthy people in the form of subsidies to buy hundred-thousand-dollar cars, put expensive solar arrays on their roof, or to be investors in wind farms.

So what’s the verdict?

The Green New Deal would

  • Hurt the Poor
  • Help the already wealthy
  • Cost everyone more
  • And it’s unreliable.

Hardly a win-win situation
