Rep. Dan Crenshaw: There Is No Actual Plan in the Green New Deal
CRENSHAW: “And more importantly on this stuff from a policy perspective, the Green New Deal is not an actual proposal. There is no actual plan in the Green New Deal. It just says everything is going to be wind and solar and we’re going to get rid of airplanes and cows. That’s not a plan. That’s not a serious proposal. That’s why it’s more of a 3rd grade science project. And the irony of it, if you care about reducing emissions, you can’t do what they are saying. What do they say all the time? They say ban fracking, ban fracking. We just reduced emissions in this country this past year by almost 3%. More than any other country in absolute terms. We have reduced more in the last couple decades than the last 12 countries combined. That’s a really big deal, but why is that? Natural gas fracking, that’s why, because natural gas is a cleaner energy and we should export it to the rest of the world."
