Sen. Dianne Feinstein Clashes With Children Over the Green New Deal

One teen girl told the senator that "we're the people who voted you" and pleaded for Feinstein to change her mind on supporting the Green New Deal.

To that, Feinstein said: "The U.S. government does a lot of things with the money, and they're important things, and you just can't go in and say, OK, we're going to take hundreds of millions from here, and hundreds of millions from there". "And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, 'Is it OK to still have children?'"

In fact, in her Sunday Instagram stream, Ocasio-Cortez answered a question from a viewer who asked whether it was "still OK" to have children in the era of climate change.

The plan also aims to slow climate change by ending the reliance on fossil fuels within 10 years; to upgrade power grids and existing buildings for maximum energy efficiency; and to overhaul transportation systems.

"The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive", the authors of the study wrote.

Several Democratic presidential candidates, however, have endorsed it, including Sens.


"I've gotten elected. I just ran", she continues.

The exchange comes as moderate Democrats grapple with the Green New Deal, a 10-year plan to mitigate climate change championed by progressives such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY.

The Democrats" highly-touted "Green New Deal' hit a major snag this week, with economists now predicting the plan could cost as much as $93 trillion over a ten year period.

Later in the day, Feinstein responded on Twitter, saying that she heard the Sunrise Movement activists "loud and clear", and that she is committed to "real, meaningful climate change legislation".

Well, replied AOC, "I don't think that working on an issue for 30 years alone. makes someone qualified to solve an issue".

"I'll tell you what", Feinstein began her response. This made her one of the few congressional representatives to pay interns, according to USA Today. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), is a set of policy proposals focused on job creation through the development of the USA renewable energy sector. "You come in here and say, 'It has to be my way or the highway.' I don't respond to that". At the end of the video, she agrees to offer one of the older kids an internship in the coming years, as she passes out copies of the Green Deal she plans on introducing. Feinstein, the oldest sitting senator at 85, was primaried from the left in the midterms by a candidate with a robust climate record, and has faced some criticism from Californians for not pursuing a more aggressive environmental agenda. He intimated that "grown-ups" Mike Bloomberg and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz are the only two people who have put Ocasio-Cortez in her place.
