The Green New Deal is a wide-ranging stimulus package that includes investment in climate-friendly infrastructure, a guaranteed job for all Americans "with a family-sustaining wage", restrictions on fossil fuel technology and "high-quality health care" for everyone.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) defended the Green New Deal during a Friday appearance on ABC's "The View", saying, "you can not go too far on the issue of climate change". Ed Markey of MA, that has been gaining steam among progressives since last November. Last night our colleague from Rhode Island said it was "truly preposterous" for me to schedule a vote on the Green New Deal. Sanders is 77 years old. "There's still this kind of fantastical connotation that comes with when you talk [with politicians] about climate change and the climate crisis. Does she have a point there or is that too radical?" She views the Green New Deal as "the opportunity for a future [in which] kids are not going to feel like they need to move out of the place that they call their home, to have a future and to even just survive". Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who had a notable exchange with a group of children about the bill. I've spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last four years. "So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit".

Although Clarke was offered an internship in Feinstein's office at the conclusion of the Friday meeting, she says that the offer is a distraction from the real issue. "And it's something that we need to address right now".

"The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive", the authors of the study wrote.

When the buttons were launched in 2015 , Amazon had to reassure the BBC's Dave Lee they were not an April Fool's joke . The plastic Dash buttons were created to be stuck around the home and pressed to reorder specific products on Amazon.

She also said: "You have to make decisions that you're going to reach certain goals, and some of our goals we think are achievable".

"Now in terms of the Green New deal [as conceived], that goes beyond what our charge is", Pelosi told Rolling Stone. "That's not exactly a ringing endorsement of a plan Democrats claim to support", McConnell said.

Despite the arrests, it doesn't appear that the Sunrise Movement activists will stop demanding action from their elected officials any time soon. Yes or no? Second, do you believe that climate change, global warming, is caused by humans?
