AOC’s Chief-Of-Staff Admits Green New Deal About Implementing Socialism – ‘It wasn’t originally a climate thing at all’ – It’s a ‘change-the-entire-economy thing’
Climate Depot Note: This is another in a long line of admissions about the real motives behind climate “solutions.” Climate change is merely the latest env. scare being used to seek the same “solutions” of more central planning. See:
‘Global Warming Solutions Same As Global Cooling Cures’ — Wait . . . What? – 1977 book titled ‘The Coming of the New Ice Age’: The “solutions” prescribed to solve both Global Warming and the looming Ice Age are exactly the same. In both cases, proponents of the theory-du-jour say that in order to stave off disaster, we must reverse the march of civilization, stop our profligate use of carbon-based fuels, cede power and money from the First World to the Third World, and wherever possible revert to a Luddite pre-industrial lifestyle.
Flashback: UN climate chief Christiana Figueres seeks ‘centralized transformation’ that is ‘going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’ – ‘The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’

EU Commissioner: Global Warming Policy Is Right Even If Science Is Wrong – ‘Regardless of whether or not scientists are wrong on global warming, the European Union is pursuing the correct energy policies even if they lead to higher prices, Europe’s climate commissioner Connie Hedegaard’s has said.’ EU’s Hedegaard in 2013: ‘Let’s say that science, some decades from now, said ‘we were wrong, it was not about climate’, would it not in any case have been good to do many of things you have to do in order to combat climate change?.’
Green Raw Deal: Big Bowl of Crazy – ‘Global warming’ is merely the latest environmental scare with the same solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning – Global warming is merely the latest environmental scare with the same big government solution
Even EPA Climate Models Show The ‘Green New Deal’ Would Have No Detectable Impact On Global Temps – Even if all the Green New Deal’s goals were achieved, it would have a negligible, and likely immeasurable, impact on projected global warming, according to climate model simulation provided by a libertarian think tank. – “I seriously think the effect would — at best — be barely detectable in the climate record,” Patrick Michaels, a climatologist with the Cato Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The year-to-year variation is very close to the total amount of warming that would be ‘saved’ by 2100, according to EPA’s own model,” Michaels said.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) far-left chief-of-staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, admitted in a recent Washington Post interview that the Green New Deal was not created to protect the environment, but to implement socialism.
Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]
[Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) responded: “Yeah,” said Ricketts. Then he said: “No.” Then he said: “I think it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s dual. It is both rising to the challenge that is existential around climate and it is building an economy that contains more prosperity. More sustainability in that prosperity — and more broadly shared prosperity, equitability and justice throughout.”]
Via Wash Examiner: Chakrabarti further said of Ricketts’ climate plans with Inslee, who has campaigned almost exclusively on environmental issues, “I’ll be honest, my view is I still think you guys aren’t going big enough.” AOC had previously tweeted that “@JayInslee’s climate plan is the most serious + comprehensive one to address our crisis in the 2020 field.”
Tom J. Donohue, CEO of the United States Chamber of Commerce, wrote earlier this year:
Climate change is real and deserves our attention. But not every policy to address it can be taken seriously. Take, for example, the Green New Deal – a sweeping proposal to “save our planet” that reads more like a parody of the progressive agenda. No laughing matter, however, is the proposal’s ultimate objective: to give government unprecedented power over people’s lives and our entire economy. …
…Other aspects of the Green New Deal seem wildly out of place for an environmental resolution. Consider the promise of massive new entitlement programs that could only be achieved through a radical redistribution of wealth. Here, the proposal shows its true colors. This is not some run-of-the-mill progressive policy – it is a Trojan Horse for socialism.
The Green New Deal aims to upend our entire economic system, wresting consumer choice from everyday Americans and putting personal decisions – from the food we eat to the cars we drive – in the hands of an unelected elite. …
Even other Democrats have called out Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left socialist agenda, including Rep. Max Rose (NY), who referred to Ocasio-Cortez’s plan as “a massive socialist economic policy platform.”
A senior Democratic aide told The Washington Post that, in internal conversations, top Democratic officials have said that “they want” Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff “out.”
