Marc Morano on Fox & Friends - Broadcast February 8, 2019 - Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt
Morano: 'This plan is plagiarism pure and simple. They borrowed it from the 1960s and 1970s. In my book, I detail how different environmental scares -- over population, resource scarcity, even global cooling -- had the same solutions: wealth redistribution, central planning, sovereignty limiting, and just a massive government intervention.'
Anchor Brian Kilmeade: The Green New Deal l"ooks like something that was put out by a 10th grader?"
MORANO: "Actually 10th is being very, very generous."
KILMEADE: "Let's go seventh."
MORANO: "I would go as low as third grade. I mean, this is a -- just a big bowl of crazy wish list of everything you could imagine.
Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal calls to: “Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”
But Sen. Markey explained, “It doesn’t actually have a specific technology that it talks about.”
Government will provide, “safe, affordable, adequate housing”
Economic security” for all who are “unable or unwilling” to work.
Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next ten years. The Green New Deal is “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she has no qualms about acknowledging a so-called “Green New Deal” will mean unprecedented governmental intrusion into the private sector. Appearing on NPR, she was asked if she’s prepared to tell Americans outright that her plans involve “massive government intervention.”
“As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention, which they just don’t like,” Steve Inskeep asked. “Are you prepared to put on that table that, ‘Yes actually they’re right, what this requires is massive government intervention’?”
“It does, it does, yeah, I have no problem saying that,” Ocasio-Cortez quickly replied. “Why? Because we have tried their approach for 40 years. For 40 years we have tried to let the private sector take care of this."
