Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal: What's in it
"Its aspirational goals will help our country combat climate change through clean and renewable energy, create millions of new jobs in the process, and safeguard our environment for generations to come".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tapped eight Democrats to serve on a special committee to address climate change.
"Today is the day that we truly embark on a comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America", Ocasio-Cortez said.
Pelosi said Reps. Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico, Suzanne Bonamici of Oregon, Joe Neguse of Colorado, Donald McEachin of Virginia and Sean Casten of IL will serve on the panel, along with three Californians: Julia Brownley, Jared Huffman and Mike Levin. Without addressing how effective are Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's solutions, they're most likely to reveal themselves not through force, but thanks to prosperity that provides people with the means to alter their driving habits, use of electricity versus solar, along with how they eat, travel, dispose of trash, and seemingly everything else.
