"In February 2019, Pelosi called Ed Markey the night before he was scheduled to help roll out the Green New Deal. She asked him to hold off. She wanted more substantive policy. The politics weren't good right then. Don’t give the platform to Ocasio-Cortez, she urged, anxious about the new congresswoman's notoriety becoming actual power," Dovere writes in the book.
"This is false. No such call was made," Pelosi's spokesman Drew Hammill told Fox News regarding the book's claim. He added that Pelosi's team plans to ask Dovere for a correction.
Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano, who stars alongside actor Kevin Sorbo in the upcoming Climate Hustle 2 documentary skeptical of radical environmental policies, tells CNSNews.com that the change to "resilient" is proof that even some Democrats have doubts about the Green New Deal:
"Pelosi knows just how toxic the Green New Deal has become to many Americans, including many Democrats. Pelosi's morphing from calling it the 'green dream' to now avoiding the word 'green' in favor of 'resilient' shows just how uneasy many of the Democratic leadership is with the Green New Deal."
Germany is failing to meet its climate goals of reducing carbon-dioxide emissions even after spending over $580 billion by 2025 to overhaul its energy systems. Germany’s emissions miss should be a “wake-up call” for governments everywhere.
Today, German households pay almost 50% more for electricity than they did in 2006 as power prices in Germany are now among the highest in Europe. Much of that increase in electricity cost is the Renewable Surcharge that has increased over the same period by 770%. Germany has learned that clean energy is not energy in totality as wind and solar only provide renewable electricity, and more accurately its only intermittent electricity at best. Renewables have also been the primary driver behind the high costs of electricity for residents of Australia and California.
