Green New Deal rollout rattles both sides of climate change debate

Today 06:59 GMT

Die-hard skeptics of climate change believe the rollout of the Green New Deal, with its plans for wealth redistribution, high taxes, and a massive transition to a carbon neutral economy, was a tipoff to a hidden agenda.

A LOOK AT THE ECONOMIC AND CLIMATE CONCEPT PUSHED BY PROGRESSIVES. "The climate debate has been driven for years by the edges of each party," said Jason Grumet, president of the Bipartisan Policy Center. "Having a more aggressively unrealistic left edge to contradict the irresponsible right edge is not likely to create the kind of consensus that’s necessary to have meaningful change."
