I doubt if you'd be surprised but the following is directly from the "New Green Deal," 1) It predicts the U.S. will lose $500 billion in annual output by 2100 due to climate change. First of all, if this is true, it would be nothing in the scheme of things. Then there's the fact that no statistical model exist that can predict the economy over 80 years. What they're stating is a lie. I'm shocked they're trying to get away with this. 2) Ocasio-Cortez and Markey claim that the U.S. is experiencing “a four-decade trend of economic stagnation, deindustrialization, and antilabor policies.” The problem with this claim is that it defies the actual data on economic growth. 3) The legislation laments “erosion of the bargaining power of workers in the United States.” What can I say about this claim beyond it's whack doodle. 4) It claims that climate change has “exacerbated systemic racial injustices,” among other inequalities.
There's a lot more than the above and it's just as ridiculous. It's like a couple of kids put together a dream sheet about what the future should look like and used no actual data to support their vision. Climate change caused racial injustices? Climate change has created anti-labor policies? The U.S. will lose $500B in economic output by the year 2100? Who in the world knows where our country or the world will be in 2100?
I'll make a prediction; when adults in the legislature see this crayon-worthy document that has absolutely no teeth, it will never make its way to the House floor for a vote. But it will do its job, and Democrats who need it to show their commitment to the environment can reference the Deal again and again for political gain. They know nothing will happen with it and have no problem misleading (a.k.a. lying), to their constituents about it being a viable piece of legislation. .
