"The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it right?".

The Sunrise Movement has even said that its members will storm the offices of members of Congress who fail to support the resolution by February 26, according to Reuters. She also pointed to her involvement in various other committees and subcommittees that will also tackle climate change initiatives.

"The Green New Deal is a raw deal for the American taxpayer", said Wyoming Republican John Barrasso, chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Although Pelosi has experience as speaker pushing climate change policies under previous administrations, more progressive members have questioned her eagerness to support an ambitious new climate proposal.

The Green New Deal also aims to create an economic safety net for "front-line" communities that will be affected by a radical shift away from fossil fuel use. Ed Markey (D-Mass), unveiled a plan to revamp the US economy and eliminate carbon emissions on Thursday, suggesting in an NPR interview that deficit spending might be the best way to pay for it.

The image is perplexing given her adamant criticism of the US oil and gas industry and her promotion of the Green New Deal, a proposal to dramatically transition the country's energy sector away from fossil fuels and toward renewable sources of power.

Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., released a Green New Deal blueprint on Thursday that offered a number of policy specifics.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tapped eight Democrats to serve on a special committee to address climate change. It's aimed a transforming the American economy by ending its dependence on fossil fuels, investing heavily in renewable energy like solar and wind and sparking large-scale job-creation. Ocasio-Cortez was not among those named to the panel, which is chaired by Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla.

Most of the Democratic presidential candidates, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Kamala Harris of California; Elizabeth Warren of MA; and Cory Booker of New Jersey have also broadly endorsed the idea behind the Green New Deal.

The freshman congresswoman made the remarks alongside fellow Democratic Reps. President Donald Trump has scrapped Obama's plan, which imposed emissions limits on coal-fired power plants, as a job-killer.

Ocasio-Cortez said that the plan will create "unprecedented levels of prosperity and wealth for all while ensuring economic and environmental justice and security.' She calls for a 'World War II-scale mobilization" that includes high-quality education and health care, clean air and water and safe, affordable housing.

"Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal represents an quake in the Democratic Party and American politics where a working class Latina bartender from the Bronx is now proposing and leading the most serious solution to rewrite America's social contract and stave off climate disaster".
