GOP WARNED NOT TO ADOPT ‘GREEN NEW DEAL-LITE’ – Democrats have moved ‘into serious, unscientific, nutty territory’

See Marc Morano’s testimony to Congress:

Republicans should not react to the Democrats’ Green New Deal by proposing a “lite” version of the plan, which has moved the Democratic Party “into serious, unscientific, nutty territory,” Marc Morano testified at a congressional hearing.

The founder of the watchdog on climate-change alarmism, Climate Depot, was a witness at a House Western Caucus Hearing on Wednesday.

“The greatest danger we face right now with the Green New Deal … is very simply the Republican Party coming up with the Green New Deal-lite,” he said.

“We need to oppose it and oppose it firmly,” Morano said. “We don’t need to come up with the lite version of the plan.”

Morano said there is “nothing new about the Green New Deal.”

“‘Global warming’ is merely the latest alleged environmental scare that is being substituted to push the same ‘solutions,’” he said.

“Instead of arguing the merits of the economic and political changes of the Green New Deal, they are using — in the words of Al Gore – a ‘torqued up” climate change scare to urge quick imposition of the policies to protect us from a climate emergency.”

Morano said the environmental left “has been using green scares to push for the same solutions we see today — wealth redistribution, central planning, sovereignty limiting treaties — since the overpopulation scares of the 1960s and 1970s.”

Along with his role as executive editor and chief correspondent for Climate Depot, Morano is communications director for the non-profit Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow. He’s the author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” and former communications director of the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee.

He noted the Green New Deal resolution has become a litmus test for Democratic presidential hopefuls.

That is despite the fact that the plan is “not sitting well with many environmental activists and other factions of the Democratic Party base.”
