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.

Prince William was given the nickname "Wombat" by his mother Princess Diana, after a trip to Australia when he was two. But she said that husband Prince William might not be quite so keen to add to the couple's family.

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?
