Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a Democratic socialist, thinks that her radical Green New Deal proposal requiring a transition to 100 percent renewable energy will “truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice” in the United States.
Ocasio-Cortez (pictured above) spoke Monday at a town hall meeting called “Solving Our Climate Crisis.”
“And first of all, it’s just plain wrong — the idea that we’re going to somehow lose economic activity” by implementing the Green New Deal.
