Riley Dennis, a far-left YouTuber, created a video endorsing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed Green New Deal. The Green New Deal is an environmental resolution with the goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, which includes abolishing nuclear energy. To achieve net-zero greenhouse emissions, the Green New Deal seeks to rebuild every existing building in a green fashion, provide free college and healthcare, replace airplanes with high-speed rail, replace every combustion-energy vehicle, abolish farting cows, provide paid family leave, and offer a government-guaranteed job to every American.
Although there are not any credible studies to back up her claim, AOC asserts that the Green New Deal is an investment and would pay for itself. However, The Washington Examiner estimates that such an ambitious proposal would cost tens of trillions of dollars. Even a liberal estimate from The Washington Post suggests that AOC’s proposed 70% marginal tax rate on income over $10 million would raise just over $700 billion in ten years, much less than the cost of her proposed Green New Deal.
Besides a wholehearted endorsement of AOC’s Green New Deal, Riley believes that climate change disproportionately harms people from marginalized communities, including people of color, indigenous communities, and the poor. However, Riley never cites any evidence to support this argument.
