Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tweeted, “I make no apologies for proposing the boldest and most aggressive climate proposal with our Green New Deal. This is a climate emergency.”
Of course, Bernie may cry ” climate emergency,” but that sure doesn’t stop the Democrats Clown Car of 2020 candidates front runner from flying First Class or using private planes.
Unfortunately for Bernie, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) wasn’t having any of his Climate alarmist BS:
Then why didn’t you vote “YES” for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor?
Maybe because it’s not a plan. Or a good deal. Or even “Green.” It’s a 3rd grade science project that isn’t based in science or engineering.

The widely-mocked Green New Deal was authored by Sanders supporter and fellow democratic simpleminded socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) early last year.
The Green New deal was hailed by Democrats despite its pie-in-the-sky social agenda and the extermination of Cows and Airplanes.
Liberal Democrats claimed the Green New Deal was part of their plan ‘Save The Earth’ by retrofitting every building in the United States and overhaul the economy to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars.
Of course, they still haven’t explained how they’ll pay for it, other than screeching their “Tax The Rich” idiocy.
In March of 2019, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell triggered the Democrats by calling their bluff and holding a vote on the Green New Deal.
Not a single Democratic member of the Senate voted in favor of the proposal, and 43 Democrats — including Sanders — voted “present.”

Yet, today, Sanders touts the Green New Deal on his presidential campaign website, promising that, if elected, he will “generate the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society,” do away with fossil fuels and guarantee the industry’s workers five years of their “current salary… as well as early retirement support for those who choose it or can no longer work,” and will replace current energy sources with renewable industries that “will be publicly owned.”
This week, Rep. Dan Crenshaw introduced what he calls the “New Energy Frontier,” a plan focused on carbon capture and “turning Co2 and other greenhouse gasses into valuable commodities.”
The Texas Congressman said in a press release:
“It’s time to stop offering the American people the false choice of inaction or economy-crushing regulation when it comes to climate change,”
“Texas is already leading the way in carbon capture and my legislation will simply allow this innovation to take off across the country, so we can market this technology to the world.
“The New Energy Frontier will help power the American economy in a cleaner way and is based on a bedrock environmental principle: recycling waste into a useful commodity.”
Unfortunately, Rep. Dan Crenshaw is trying to talk logically to a group of people that believe ‘FEELINGS are more factual than FACTS!’.
