Hey Joe, what do ya know? Apparently not much when it comes to fighting against global warming, according to Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The freshman Congresswoman and leader on the socialistic style Green New Deal tweeted her disgust after sources revealed a part of Joe Biden’s plan to combat climate change, saying the Vice President displayed a “lack of leadership” with his potential “middle ground” proposal.
According to Reuters, “[t]he backbone of the policy will likely include the United States re-joining the Paris Climate Agreement and preserving U.S. regulations on emissions and vehicle fuel efficiency that Trump has sought to undo, according to one of the sources, Heather Zichal, who is part of a team advising Biden on climate change. She previously advised President Barack Obama.”
Reuters source also said that “the policy could also be supportive of nuclear energy and fossil fuel options like natural gas and carbon capture technology, which limit emissions from coal plants and other industrial facilities.”
In response, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said, “This is a dealbreaker. There is no ‘middle ground’ w/ climate denial & delay. Blaming ‘blue collar’ Americans as the main opponents to bold climate policy is gas lobbyist 101.” . . .

We’re not going to solve the climate crisis w/ this lack of leadership. Our kids’ lives are at stake. https://t.co/KvrBmaJd75
