The Green New Deal Is Unserious and Juvenile

So why in the world would you engage in sabotage of the ideas you hope to advance?That’s undeniably what Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Senator Ed Markey (D., Mass.) have done with their juvenile Green Ne...

Environmentalist Shreds Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal: ‘This Would Mean Removing All Water Vapor’

According to a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the human race has just 12 years to curb carbon emissions before climate change becomes an irreversible, catastrophic event. The Republican Party usually denies the existence of climate problems. But their rivals in the Democratic Party claim to understand it. However, they have done very little when it comes to offering a solution. The last time Democrats did anything substantial was in 2o09 when they pushed a bill...

Could 'climate delayer' become the political epithet of our times?

Already we argue over whether to call them climate deniers, skeptics or doubters. Donald Trump loves a schoolyard nickname, insulting everyone from “Crazy Bernie” Sanders to “Little Marco” Rubio.

The Green New Deal: Historians weigh in on the immense scale required to pull it off

In an attempt to cure his paralysis, a 42-year-old Franklin D. Roosevelt began to visit Warm Springs, Georgia in the mid-1920s, soaking his weak legs in the town’s soothing mineral waters. It was here that Roosevelt — who in less than a decade would become President of the United States — would see a part of the nation new to him. And it was miserable. “He saw the reality. He had never seen poverty like that. He saw a family of eight living in a tar paper shack, farming on depleted soil,” Paul S...
