Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally released her much-hyped “Green New Deal” proposal. The plan — if you can call it that — is to totally upend and reshape our economy while eliminating all carbon emissions. And she does mean all carbon emissions.

I cannot offer an in-depth analysis of this proposal. The proposal itself is so vague in parts, delusional in other parts, and unbelievably childish through every part, that serious engagement with its ideas is impossible. It reads like something a four-year-old in Soviet Russia may have dreamt up. All I can do, all I need to do, is tell you exactly what it says. You will soon realize why a thorough rebuttal is not necessary.

Here are five highlights:

-“Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

Yes, every building. There are over 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S. Add that to the approximately 127 million households, which is to say nothing of all the schools and churches and hospitals, and you have a project that would cost trillions of dollars and take decades, at a minimum, to complete. And we’re only getting started.

-“Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high- speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”

If we are building enough high-speed rail to make air travel “unnecessary,” we would of course need this mythical railway system primarily built across the ocean. There is about five thousand miles separating California from Japan. This railroad would need to span across that entire stretch of the Pacific, which is 13,000 feet deep on average.

-“A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security for every American.”

There are currently about 325 million people in this country, not counting illegal aliens (whom, I assume, AOC would include in this entitlement). Where are these jobs coming from? Who is providing them? What if people don’t want to work?

Cortez does actually have an answer to that last question. She stipulates that “economic security” will be provided to all those “unable or unwilling to work.” So, jobs will be plucked off the magical job tree and handed out to anyone who wants one. If you don’t want one, you’ll be sent to the magical economic security tree where a limitless supply of money awaits. Something tells me the economic security tree will be much more popular than the job tree.

-“Plant lots of trees.”

That is an actual sentence in the document. It is at least practical, unlike the other items listed. But it is also so vague as to be useless.

-Abolish cows.

Actually “farting cows,” specifically. Yes, the phrase “farting cows” appears, verbatim, in this allegedly serious proposal written by a United States congresswoman. Here is the full context: “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

The implication is that getting rid of gassy cows is a goal, but it may not be achievable in 10 years. This may be the most reasonable concession Cortez makes. But, longterm, what will happen to the farting cows? Will they be sent off to an island for flatulent bovine? Will they be launched into space? And how will we make up for all of the lost meat and milk that many Americans depend upon to live? Does Cortez have plans to genetically engineer cows who don’t pass gas? These specifics are not provided.

And how will she pay for any of this? She provides few particulars, other than to admit that “even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they could make would not be sufficient.”

Confiscating all of the wealth in the country is a start, you see. Then we kill all the cows. Then we tear down all the buildings. Then when everyone is broke and homeless and starving, we can figure out where to go from there. A flawless plan, you must agree.

    -Abolish cows.

    ‘Actually “farting cows,” specifically’

    I assume the ones that can no longer fart will merely explode.

    She apparently has never been to a state of the art dairy farm, as they are already reclaiming the gas expelled from manure and using it to power related machinery. If this doesn’t satisfy the rookie congresslackey, perhaps she could head a committee to research how to capture said farts.

    Did she say where we were going to dump or bury the debris from the demolished “over 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S. . . .127 million households . . .all the schools and churches and hospitals?”

    In order for her plan to succeed, people would be required to work the job the government assigns them to do. Otherwise all this retrofitting and transitioning to non-fossil fuels would not get done in time to save the planet. In other words, America would have to become a totalitarian society.

    It is said that the plan offered by AOC will resolve carbon net desiclinear ratification in 3.9 years once zero emissions becomes sustainable within a framework of inverse emissions standards. It is not know if the 2.7% decrease in anti-sustatinability amortized over the 5.8 years imagined within the UOCC board’s projected prohimbulatory Vacheron application. If AOC has factored in the 6.0% Harcourt expostitionary numbers then it’s reasonable to assume that the fundamentals of her plan are sound.

      In a Double Cross by Hitler, he promised the German
      People, new innovative Automobiles, Paid Vacations,
      Paid Retirements, in order to gain their allegiance.
      Sadly he never came thru for the German People.
      But The Weak Minded Germans did pledge their Allegiance and Votes to
      Hitler and became Nazi’s. The people who did not fall for Hitler’s lies were eventually tortured and arrested
      By Hitler’s Brown Shirts!!

      We laugh at AOC’s Evil Stunt
      To gain Democratic Votes and their Allegiance but The Weak Minded will
      Fall for this Bullshit! American People must do a better job in educating the young people of America in Nazi History!!
      The MSM has shut down all conflicting education of the people.

      Patroklos check into a Mental Health Facility!!! You need help ASAP!! Move to another Country, you are a Nazi!!

      I’m sure you are aware that Hitler promised new innovative machines & automobiles, Paid Vacations, Paid Retirement, to The German People in order to get their
      Votes and Allegiance. Sadly Hitler lied to these people and never followed thru with any of his promises after he got their Votes & Allegiance. He did get The Weak Minded & Gullible People to Vote for him. Once in power he tortured, killed, and arrested anyone that resisted his power.
      We laugh at AOC’s Evil Schemes but there are Weak Minded & Gullible People that will vote Democrat based on these lies. Since the MSM has limited what Truth gets out to American People, we must immediately start educating young people we work with or friends with about the Socialism Hitler Movement and stop this Nazism.
      Hitler used Women with lies of empowerment, he too
      Forced German People to give up Meat and go on Vegan Diet. Hitler started youth groups of young boys & girls to indoctrinate their minds to socialism.

        *****Patroklous******
        Stop spreading your Nazi Lies! Hitler used very similar lies of new innovations to gain the German Peoples Allegiance & Votes.
        Once Hitler got their votes he never came thru with his new innovative promises.
        The Green New Deal is nothing but Lies to gain people’s Allegiance & Votes. Democrats know they will never deliver on these promises, and they know they are using the same Evil Hitler Lies to get votes.
        Hitler Socialism will never be in America.
        There are more of us than of you!!!
        We will use our voices to educate the people.

      Hitler forced The German People to stop eating meat and forced them to eat a Vegan Diet. Most PETA People are Vegans, they are against eating any animal products.
      PETA people are Socialist Nazi Worshipers!! They call themselves Progressive Democrats.

        AOC is a killer of American Society.
        She is a George Soros Hitler Worshiper!
        George Soros was raised by Nazi’s and his mind is indoctrinated with Hitler’s World
        Authoritarian Domination. People in Washington are after control & power over the American People. They want to turn American people into slaves, this is the 1st step.

    Send her to Mars, let her design the entire planet any way she wants. She’ll dictate that all high speed trains only travel North/South so no ever suffers from jet lag again. And all the children will receive nourishment from Pelosi’s milkers. People will want to give up their cars and cows and follow her to Mars becuz they’ll live longer, a Martian year is 687 days.

      Building that railroad line from Earth to Mars is going to be a bit of a problem. Is there any way we could collect and store the cow emissions and use that as an alternative fuel source. If AOC can get Senator Warren on board, we can all have our homes replaced with energy efficient wigwams.
