China is already beating the US at a Green New Deal

U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently released the landmark Green New Deal proposal, which would enact new and sweeping regulations to help fight climate change.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was recently filmed talking down to children who asked her why she was opposing the bill.

Republicans have described it as “nothing more than the latest job-killing, socialist wish list from the radical left.” Meanwhile, China is already making huge strides that put the U.S.’s climate stance to shame.

Yes, science has repeatedly proven that the Earth is getting warmer, and that these rapid environmental changes will likely have catastrophic effects in our own lifetime.

While U.S. lawmakers continue to take money from oil and gas companies while twiddling their thumbs, China is already announcing big plans to transition to renewable energy.

By 2050, writes CNN citing Chinese reports, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Program “plans that a full-sized space-based solar plant would be ready for commercial use.” At the current rate of U.S. debate and filibuster, the Green New Deal probably still won’t have been voted on.
