On Thursday Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced a so-called “economic development plan” that will not only bankrupt America if it is ever fully adopted, but it will reverse more than a century of societal and technological progress.

According to an overview of the plan, which Ocasio-Cortez is calling the “Green New Deal,” it is decade-long “massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline,” Americans for Tax Reform(ATR) said.

Specifically, the Green New Deal — and bear in mind we’re not making any of this up — calls for:

— The elimination of all air travel, at least in the United States. Not only does that mean domestic flights, but that also includes foreign travel (not sure if Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Democratic Socialists” would allow airliners from foreign countries to fly to the U.S. and land here).

— The replacement of air travel with “high-speed rail” travel, essentially turning a four-and-a-half hour flight from Los Angeles to New York City into a 24-hour ordeal or more. “Build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary,” the plan says.

— The literal rebuilding of every single building in the United States: “Upgrade or replace every building in U.S. for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

— The end of all traditional forms of energy currently in use in the U.S., to be replaced by ‘green’ renewable energy sans nuclear power (wind and solar). In fact, ‘if possible,’ the plan calls for the elimination of all nuclear power plants. It’s “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.”

Further: “It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.”

Why is that ‘unclear?’ You’d think the brainiacs who concocted this scheme would have researched that aspect. Hint: It’s not possible. The Nuclear Energy Institute says the process takes 60 years to complete properly. But hey, when you’re a 29-year-old ex-bartender, these are mere details. (Related: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez earns an “F” in science for demanding 100% renewable energy in 10 years.)

— Replacing “carbon capture” with a much simpler plan: Have all Americans become forest managers. “We believe the right way to capture carbon is to plant trees and restore our natural ecosystems. CCUS technology to date has not proven effective,” says the plan.

And the best part is, we don’t have to worry about how to pay for it all

There’s more beyond just the ecological/environmental aspect.

“The Green New Deal fully tackles the existential threat posed by climate change by presenting a comprehensive, 10-year plan that is as big as the problem it hopes to solve while creating a new era of shared prosperity,” according to a summary of the plan, The National Sentinel reported.

“We … need to be sure that workers currently employed in fossil fuel industries have higher-wage and better jobs available to them to be able to make this transition, and a federal jobs guarantee ensures that no worker is left behind,” the summary continued.

What does that mean? Social justice, of course. The plan would “ensure that all GND jobs are union jobs that pay prevailing wages and hire local.” Of course — because the unions can’t grow these days without corporations being forced to implement them.

And just how does Ocasio-Cortez think this plan will be paid for? Easy; just have the Treasury print more money. “The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and investments and new public banks can be created to extend credit,” the plan says. 

But that’s not important anyway, as ATR noted. Ocasio-Cortez says what really matters “isn’t how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity.”

What could go wrong?

      Ihese dems are so crazy, I don’t think the insane asylum would even accept them. They are absolutely nuts, looney tunes. Is this the new requirement to get into congress”? It certainly appears to be. We are doomed as a society. Lead by crazy imbeciles.

      This bimbo is pushing the agenda of The Tribe who installed her. Just like Deep State’s Trojan Horse, Drumpf.
      Recall how the MD in the 1960s revealed that eventually the NWO wanted to shut down air travel and pop music would become incrementally worse, more degraded and mind-limiting as part of the control and dumb-down of US citizens.
      If Trojan horse Bimbo wanted to help environment? She’d demand shut down of US military- which uses /emits 5X the toxic load of all other NATIONS combined annually. But its waging Israel’s wars in M.E, so bimbo wont ever suggest that

      Why on Earth do they keep putting microphones in front of this certifiably crazy person? If they would refrain from
      putting microphones in her face, she would fade away into nothingness. The press (crazy as well), needs to
      quit giving her air time. She is giving crazy ideas that fools will actually start rallying for! Time to quit
      giving her microphones, cameras, and any kind of press.
