Headline Roundup February 7th, 2019
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduces an outline for the Green New Deal to fight climate change.
Whether it's a deadly cold snap or a hole in an Antarctic glacier or a terrifying new report, there seem to be constant reminders now of the dangers that climate change poses to humanity.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is set to release her much-touted “Green New Deal” on Thursday -- a package of far-reaching, big-government proposals like health care for all, federal job guarantees and a push to eliminate U.S. carbon emissions -- but it’s already receiving shade from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal House resolution is officially here.
