AOC on elitism and the environment

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave a great speech about the Green New Deal and the environment, which is captured in the video above.

What a great speech!  It’s eloquent, to the point and well worth a listen.

It was in response to a Republican congressman from Wisconsin, who said environmentalism was elitist.  Rep. Sean Duffy introduced an environmental amendment to a bill dealing with homelessness just so he could speak against it.

The U.S. Senate yesterday voted 57-0 to refuse to take up a Green New Deal resolution backed by Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey.  But there’s a select committee in the House of Representatives that is studying the issue.  The Green New Deal debate has just started.
