The Green New Deal that would eliminate air travel has an odd supporter of the policy. Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono claims anyone who opposes the ‘Green New Deal’ have a ‘crazy position.’ Hirono made these claims in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
“What the Green New Deal stands for is a recognition that climate change is happening, not sticking our head in the sand,” Hirono said.
Hirono stated, “So what’s really crazy is Trump and all his minions and his ilk who think that global warming and climate change is not happening and they’d rather just stick their heads in the sand, they offer absolutely zero in terms of what they would propose. So all they can do is mock and attack and I think that is a crazy position because they are denying the science behind climate change.”
The ‘Green New Deal’ would destroy our entire economic system and cost the tax payers $9.3 Trillion a year and $93 Trillion over ten years. It is a crazy position to embrace the ‘Green New Deal’ when science does not support the idea that man made climate change is a serious threat to the earth. It is worth noting that majority of scientists admit humans have very little effect on the climate of the earth.
