Joe Biden Responds To Ocasio-Cortez Criticizing His Climate Change Plan

Joe Biden Responds To Ocasio-Cortez Criticizing His Climate Change Plan”

Sanders' team has said he and Ocasio-Cortez "have had phone calls". Ed Markey introduced the Green New Deal in February, a non-binding resolution calling for legislation to drastically transform the USA economy to fight global warming.

Joe Biden fired back at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday after she took a jab at his "middle-of-the-road" stance on climate change.

"That is too much for me", Ocasio-Cortez said.

The plan has won broad support among Democratic activists and has been endorsed by several of the party's presidential hopefuls. As Biden continues to lead the field in the polls, expect the criticism to grow louder from the more progressive left.

The former vice president will reportedly release a moderate climate change plan soon, one that could still be friendly to fossil fuel energy sources. Ocasio-Cortez worked on Sanders' 2016 campaign. "Our kids' lives are at stake".

Biden was less subtle in his response at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

Biden said he would be making a "major speech" to detail his environmental policy by the end of the month.

Published reports suggest Biden is seeking "middle ground" on climate. Tell her to check the statements that I made, and look at my record ... "We are in a social media age and I think that her Twitter account is second only to Trump's in terms of political figures in the country".

He was also spotted in the critical early primary state talking with voters wearing a sticker that said "Protect People, Not Polluters".

The Green New Deal, introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen.

Right now, Sanders and Warren appear to have the edge. Sanders, who like Biden is running for president, rejects that approach as timid.

Democrats slammed the vote as a sham and said their objective was to create a dialogue about climate change ahead of the 2020 election, and not to force parties to decide on a quick vote. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, Amy Klobuchar of New York and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

In crafting a more middle-ground approach to climate change, Biden is hoping to appeal to working-class voters who may be reluctant to back more extensive approaches to climate change, like the Green New Deal, which ultimately seeks to reduce USA greenhouse gas emissions to net zero over a 10-year period.

Republicans believe the massive proposed overhaul - though scant on specifics - to get to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, in addition to a massive federal investment, is tantamount to a radical "big government takeover of the economy". She's already showed up in GOP campaign ads this cycle.
