This week, U.S. Congresswoman (NY-14) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old self-described Democratic Socialist, released the framework for a “Green New Deal” which includes:

“meeting 100 percent of the power demand through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources”

“upgrading all existing buildings” in the country for energy efficiency

“eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” from farms

“overhauling transportation systems” to reduce emissions — including expanding electric car manufacturing, building “charging stations everywhere,” and expanding high-speed rail to “a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”

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


Stewardship versus environmental idolatry, which leads by the way to global governance as a topical discuss today right here on the Christian Realty radio program where the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christians and to share the good news that all people can be reconciled to God. Faith in Jesus Christ. I'm gave a Wheaton host the program on our website is the Christian were creation stewardship versus environmental idolatry this week.

US Congresswoman Alexandria Okazaki of Cortez.

The 29-year-old self-described democratic socialist release.

The framework for a quote green new deal which includes meeting 100% of the power demand through clean, renewable, and zero emission energy sources not I'm quoting for a lot of things right from the bill. There is no more fossil fuels upgrading all existing buildings in the country. All existing buildings for energy efficiency eliminating pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from farms. That's because cows produce a lot of gas and I'm not joking about that overhauling transportation systems to reduce emissions electric car manufacturing manufacturing charging stations everywhere on the next point of guaranteed job with the family sustaining wage etiquette adequate family medical leave, paid vacations and retirement security for every American. And lastly, high quality healthcare for all Americans.

A source of that is the green new deal is reporting by NPR of the original new Deal in 1933 by Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt Institute of massive taxpayer-funded projects and permanently change the federal government's relationship to US citizens. According to out the same kinds of government mandates and expenditures. The green new deal is an attempt to do exactly the same for government to gain control over every area of your life. Through promising health, safety, and your security know who could be against that. Today the Christian review Kalb Eisner joins us from the Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation was go straight to the first segment of the interview with Cal coming on the Christian world view today will start out with a a current event that's been taking place in our country. We had the really terrible fires out in California that ravaged certain areas of that state along with the upper Midwest is seen the deepest freeze in decades on the region where I live. Does this indicate anything to do with human caused climate change upholding all look to separately dimension with Dr. Roy Spencer who is a climatologist University of Alabama who with his partner there. Dr. John Christy manages all data from NASA's satellite remote sensing of equipment give us the best data we have on global Berkshire by Dr. Spencer recently wrote a short book the Cornwall Alliance was published told global warming skepticism from busy people don't.

With both of those issues in the book and if you provide historical data really give us a handle on the stage. With 30 wildfires in California on the West only historical data to the number of fires comes to plotting considerably from the 1920s and 30s when they were at their very highest to the person, the area burned also declined from the 20s and 30s into the 1980s and I and then began to rise again and believe has nothing whatsoever to do with climate that has to do with the fact that in the 70s and 80s use our general practices about forestry management, especially on public lands has been to stop clearing the underbrush and harvesting trees result should have a whole lot more fuel to burn when the fire starts it burns hotter, burns faster, travels faster and it's very very difficult to bring under control so as matter-of-factly increase in the area burned is indeed caused by human action or whether we might shape our human interaction because were not clearing the underbrush and harvesting the trees, so there's that one has nothing whatsoever to do with climate literature courses severe cold. We've been feeding across the northern Midwest here in the United States the last few days with the temperatures being broken. The runback constructions 50 and 60 years temperature records that also certainly has nothing to do with human activity causing global warming because this is just the opposite, but the long-term trends on global average temperature indicate that I will be coming on for long term you're talking let's start off with. So the last hundred years global warming significantly around 1850 coming on the books called the Little Ice Age, which ran from basically 1350 to 1850, and we should all be glad to do because of the time the cool temperatures look shorter growing seasons more lost harvests to early Frost family trust and so on. That meant a lot of starvation and indeed in the 14th century Europe lost 1/3 of the population because the famine was caused largely by crop failures connected to severe cold in the middle and conceptually given warming up warming continued fits and starts throughout the period until now. There's actually been some cooling. 1950s and 60s saw significant cooling, and for the United States and 48 contiguous states 1930s are the warmest decade we've had so far considerably warmer than the present.

The trends do not match what the climate alarmists blame for the warming that is the carbon dioxide emissions from human use of fossil fuels to provide energy.

Our emissions been going up very exponentially full last hundred years, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been rising quite steadily for the last 60 years or so and the temperature has risen and fallen and risen and fallen at various different rates during that period and that indicates that the correlation between temperature and CO2 is not strong is actually very weak. In fact if you look at it very very closely assigned to the studio to follow temperature rather than leading the student to the cause (proceeds, temperature, but the opposite is happening so it's not the case, which is 2002.

Anything to warm the atmosphere. I think this is good on that issue is how much does it do that. It seems from the empirical evidence of the cause very very little and basically benign good flush on a course the impact of CO2 in the atmosphere is good as it gets more and more dense plants are growing better over the world.

Deserts are greening and crops are yielding more produce and that means more abundant in the formal suit for everybody, especially the poor with us today in the Christian world view.

He is the founder and spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation. Their website is Cornwall this is an organization, you need to know about and stay in contact with and support.

So from what you just described in your last answer. Against this climate alarmism taking place. So why do so many reputable scientists.

I say reputable from the standpoint that they come from institutions that are well known higher education elsewhere. Why did they get this wrong that that man is causing global warming and there is catastrophic problems ahead for us are probably a number of different explanations. We can't give one blanket, one that applies to everybody and frankly we may never really been able to say, as a generalization, why this scientist gets this long. Now that shouldn't some surprises too much and it shouldn't make us really worried about whether in fact they are wrong because we do know that the majority of soil climate scientists were wrong. When the 1960s and 70s. They were telling us that we were headed into globally through global cooling.

Opposite happened.

Why were they all wrong. Interesting question and there are some different hypotheses about that we may never be able to answer for short. I can give you a few possibilities. One is simply to reduce it in the publication of scientific research bias in favor of positive findings that is if you do some experiments and the do not support your hypothesis, you're unlikely to get that experiments not published so there is a natural bias in favor of reporting positive results against reporting negative results. Another reason for inspection. Science tends to go in taxes and echo chamber that happens that idea becomes popular. Pickups spread around the community for a long time and it takes a very long time to open the way the simple popularity of that idea, some additional explanations that are perhaps a little less, less savory, yet I think very credible one is simply to this is where the money if you want research grants from especially from the government's melodies on climate related research.

You're going to put your proposal in a way that ties your work to the idea of human -induced climate change. If you don't do that the likelihood of getting your grants is slim to mill and frankly the money there is many billions of dollars roughly hundred billion dollars a year spent by governments around the world just on research on human -induced climate change, not including the money spent on the really useful stuff, which is our daily weather forecasts that tell us what to expect over the next three or four days and then one further possible explanation why some scientists get this wrong is with so many of them have become movement advocates of environmentalism and the environmental movement, starting through back in the 1940s and 50s, was looking for some sort of a cause that they could champion that would enable them to say, look, we need global action on such and such a problem, and early on. The idea was on overpopulation and then shoot growth and resource production outstrips population growth that became unpopular. It's coming back nowadays, but no more sensible now than it was. The next idea was to blame industrial activity for putting a lot of salt into the air and that sort was absorbing heat from the sun which flows warming the planet well turned around. When we got global cooling in the 50s and 60s and we were told that we were cooling the planet burning fossil fuels and putting aerosols into the air that reflected sunlight back in the space done. When we got warming coming from the mid-70s onto the late 90s. That of course turned out to be not an easy case to make. So then we were told we were causing warming by burning fossil fuels by putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which is an infrared absorbing just that heats the atmosphere. The cool thing as far as the political agenda goes on this since carbon dioxide spreads through the entire atmosphere pays no attention whatsoever to national borders. This means that controlling the act is going to require international agreements or in fact global government, which is why the French president. Back at the time of the curative protocols that this was our first major step toward government more disease is also getting that's Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, we ought to never become indifferent to the slaughter of the innocents taking place in our country.

Call one AAA 646-2233 or visit the Christian world.thank you for joining us today in the Christian world view radio program. I'm David Wheaton, the host website is the Christian world view.or there for a few resources to go with the topic today and creation stewardship versus environmental idolatry, which leads to global governance to resources by Cal bison our guest. The first is the DVD 80 minutes long call climate change in the Christian.

This is the message that Cal gave to an organization very good help Christians understand this this issue of in my environmentalism climate change. Also there's a booklet he has out as well call the cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work. The 15 page booklet both available for a donation of any amount to the Christian world view was getting contact out without the usual ways.

At our website the Christian world or by calling your office at one AAA eight 646-2233 or writing to us will give that information throughout the program. I want to get back to the second segment of the interview with Cal bison or I was reading your weekly. I think it's weekly E update they send it by email your E newsletter. I guess you could call it, and I would really recommend listeners get that you can sign up for that, just keep you informed about all these different issues related to environmentalism going on and from a couple different newsletters you hadn't quoted Nancy Pelosi is saying the speaker of the house. The climate crisis is the existential threat of our time speaker Nancy Pelosi told her house colleagues.

We must quote and the inaction and denial of science that threaten the planet in the future." Then he wrote about two PhD's writing in psychology today declared that quote the human race faces extinction unquote if we don't stop burning fossil fuels, and yet quote.

Even people who experience extreme weather events often still refused to report the experiences as a manifestation of climate change."

Psychologist. They lament quote have never had to face denial on this scale before unquote. And of course that the new Congress person Alexandria Castillo Cortez recently says submit the world is going to and are going to freefall if we don't do something about the climate within about a dozen years or so. How can a Christian navigate in a secular environment like this, whether it's a Christian student on a secular college campus, whether it's a Christian in the science community, whether someone at work where not accepting man because climate change is seen as some sort all your climate denier your your heretic carefully.

Really, we have to take very seriously what the apostle Paul said in first Thessalonians 521 test all things hold fast what is good that attitude that mentality is very heart and soul of science back in 1938, philosopher and sociologist science Robert Merton wrote a really key article at the time the other disciplines.

Skepticism tends to be regarded as some sort of a fight. But in science, skepticism is a virtue of the sad thing is that in the climate change agenda and movement of skepticism has been vilified and that really turns away from science of the late Nobel prize winning physicist Richard Feynman should really this is the key to science. When you have a theory you must devise predictions of what you should observe in the real world. If your theory is true, then you must make those observations and if what you observed contradicts your predictions, then your theory is wrong and it doesn't matter how smart you are or how many people agree with you, or how beautiful your theory was the observations contradicted your theory is wrong.

While in the case of the idea of dangerous man-made global warming, driven by carbon dioxide and missions.

The observations contradict the theory, which is not to say that CO2 doesn't cause any plan or any warming at all unconvinced adults.

There are actually a few a few scientists to think about something out some interesting arguments that will persuade me, but I'm convinced that it does.

But the computer climate models on which the alarmists determine all say that we should be observing about 3/10 of a degree Celsius per decade warming running from 1960 to the present. Instead, what we observed is about 13 hundredths of a degree Celsius of warming per decade, which is less than half almost as little as 1/3 of what the mobility models predict and we can't even know that all the warming that we do observe is been driven by added CO2 in the atmosphere because urban warming periods in the past when we weren't adding fuel to the atmosphere To explain those we can't explain the present by CO2. We do need to be skeptical and that is a scientific virtue not of ice and frankly important policies calls the select substantial threat and one Alexandria across your Cortez tells us that the world is going to end in 12 years if we don't do something about climate change and when those psychologists tell us that the human race to be put made extinct by this, they are going way beyond anything. Among the reputable climate scientists would point you in the recoverable panel on climate change when it does its scenarios for future warming suggests that we might see all 2 to 3C increase in global average temperature by say two centuries from now and at the same time. They predict that human economies will improve tremendously over the same.

And that will mean that people will be less at risk from weather-related problems from lack of true drinking water from lack of food from area advertisement like that very same time that the warming is occurring when you don't silly of scientists, but even those who are only what I would call the claimant on the side. They certainly don't go to the victims of extra strength throughout the world can and Cal bison with us today. The Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation all answer the question by saying warehouse the Christian navigate an environment like that is just to go to your website and get some materials and get some get some data and some evidence that that will were being told is actually not taking place.

To the extent of being existential threat. There's been a change in the House of Representatives now in Democrat-controlled Simpsonville leftists leading the charge. There we mentioned a couple of them with Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Castillo Cortez. They talked about the green new deal. What is the green new deal.

They are talking about are some of the latest climate change initiatives that Christians should be aware of? Those so much involved in quite an amazing thing. First off, the green new deal was being touted by that label in order to compare it with the new deal under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which was so popular in so many ways.

But what would this green new deal brings for us to give you a few different pieces of one some government-funded investment in renewable mainly wind and solar energy. Despite the fact that it's less reliable and far more expensive than fossil fuel, nuclear as soon as low carbon infrastructure development touted to create jobs, whereas in fact it will kill more jobs are created because it will drive up energy prices and therefore all other prices, while crippling conventional fossil fuel, nuclear and Hydro energy industries served will be killer taxes on oil and gas companies putting them out of double handicap sources for wind and solar and other renewables receipts tax breaks and subsidies for scores to hundreds of times higher per gigawatt of generating power and finally the government subsidies and low-interest loans to green investments in energy savings and for by money taken from taxpayers pockets.

All of this and in fact it would make you will impact on global average temperature during this century or the next or the next green new deal is politics and it's basically socialist egalitarianism piggybacks on environmentalism is really at the labyrinthine package of measures meant simultaneously to reduce economic inequality which it will, in fact, perhaps to and fight climate change flips the green new deal and interestingly enough, there are six top 2020 presidential contenders among the Democrats and all six of them embrace the green new deal Cal bison with us today on the Christian will be the soundest Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation. The website is Cornwall from your column. Five reasons why Christians must make biblically sound earth stewardship a priority that you say there's five reasons for this. Number one. Radical environmentalism at its heart is a false religion number two.

Radical environmentalism is the face of the anti-human pro-death agenda third reason why Christians must make biblically sound earth stewardship. A priority number three is a secularist radical environmentalist Trojan horse targets Christian youth number for the reason is radical environmentalism harms people, especially the poor in difficult economic times and number five.

We must know and carry out God's commands regarding earth stewardship and care for the poor. Now I'm not gonna ask you to go through all of my weight. Just pick one of those and explain it more fully why Christians must make that particular point of biblically sound earth stewardship priority okay Cal bison will answer that question after this next break of the day on the Christian world view.

He was talking with the green new deal. We have much more coming up on that in the final segment of the day with soundbite Selectman going on the news regarding that. Also, just a reminder that we have two new resources today that were offering in light of this topic on environmentalism.

Cal is given an excellent 80 minute message called climate change in the Christian that the DVD also a booklet which you can order as well.

The cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work. I'll ask him about that in the next segment both available for a donation of any amount to the Christian really discover a website the Christian world or call one AAA 646-2233. There is an abundance of resources available in Christian bookstores and online that reality is that many of them even some of the most popular did not lead to a sound and strong faith. The aim of the Christian world view is to identify and offer resources that are biblically faithful and deep in your walk with God in our online store. We have a wide range of resources for all ages, adult and children's books and DVDs, Bibles and devotionals unique and more so brows are and find enriching resources for yourself family friend.

We have resources there were offering two new ones today in light of our topic and also we offered this recently in the program.

The usual ways to order that were the resources were offering today. Let's get with one more segment with Cal bison or the founder of the Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation. Let's get back to the final segment with Cal radical environmentalism harms people, especially the poor in difficult economic times explain it more fully why Christians must make that particular point of biblically sound earth stewardship priority will be environmental very very expensive. By making energy less affordable and accessible greenhouse gas and other environmental regulations drive up costs of basic necessities like food, fuel, electricity, and no stifle economic growth and the cost jobs, government subsidies of ethanol.

For example, supposedly to help fight global warming. Although it turns out that when you do a complete cradle-to-grave analysis of ethanol production and used we actually put more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by doing that, but that's okay. The fallen lobbyist up government over the barrel on those government subsidies to ethanol have been linked to fuel and food costs causing the price of staple foods like rice corn made today to spike over recent years has brain is diverted from saving people and livestock to our fuel tanks several years ago. In fact, over 50% of all corn grown in the United States was was put into our fuel trucks instead of feeding either people or cattle or pigs that people do you have later eat and that meant, according to one very careful analysis that Americans ethanol policy alone caused nearly 200,000 premature deaths every year in the developing world is raise costs more dangerous really is simply that the effort to keep developing countries from using coal and oil and natural gas to generate electricity in order to fight global warming. That effort is locking people into the continued use of wood and drive dominoes their primary heating and cooking fuels and the pollution from kills. According to the World Health Organization, some two 4 million people year, mostly women and young children and also do some nonfatal but debilitating respiratory diseases to hundreds of millions of regular and those diseases keep them from working well to lift themselves out of poverty. So what we see at the Cornwall alliances that even with the best of intentions. A lot of environmental policies very very harmful core around the world and Jesus taught us that we do need to definitely be contacting the poor from it is so counterintuitive. People think they're trying to help the poor. Through these initiatives but actually hurts the people there purportedly trying to help.

Thanks for explaining that Cal bison with us today on the Christian really talking about Christian stewardship versus environmental idolatry, Cal. I want to read a short paragraph from your booklet. The cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work and you say in that booklet. In this short study of the cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work. I'm going to ask you to add to your entirely correct and very Western embrace of forensic justification.

Another entirely correct and very Eastern embrace of metaphysical renewal and to recognize that the renewal God achieves through Christ's cross work is not only a renewal of individuals but also a renewal of the entire cosmos. The whole creation" that's a very interesting paragraph or maybe a little hard to understand.

Explain what you mean by that paragraph, and really us that the thesis of the booklet but really what I mean there is rooted in Romans chapter 8 what Paul said there about the creation itself and how it is waiting for the for the work of Christ in chapter chapter 8 verses 18 following pulses I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us for the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God for the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. Not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons redemption of our bodies. We get sicknesses and what is a part of the curse and it's a curse on our bodies.

It's a curse on the world around us that God placed on it because of our fall into sin, and the redeeming work of Christ is meant both to redeem individuals from our personal sin to reconcile us to God through the forgiveness of our sins, and great imputation of Christ's righteousness to us received by faith alone and to reverse the effects of the curse on the world around us and this we learn in Romans eight quoted and also in Colossians 1 Paul writes that Christ is come to reconcile the whole creation to God potentially what I was trying to do in my my booklet the cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work to to put our attention on what is done not just for the salvation of individuals which portions the central theme of the gospel, but also for the glorification and the remaking of the entire cosmos question is houses that impact that God saves us individually, justifying us individually and also he's going to redeem the whole creation.

How should that impact the way we think and live out a number of different ways. Of course it starts with our realization, we have this marvelous treasure of the gospel of Christ saving work that we would be taking to our neighbors because they like us are sinners and outdated reconciliation with God through Christ but also what this should should remind us of this is, indeed, our father's world that it is a beautiful place, that the heavens declare the glory of God. The firmament shows his handiwork date to date on her speech night tonight's fourth knowledge so we should be wishing to simply be amazed at the wonders of God's creative brilliance and glories of his goodness. Sharon commissioned the creation around us. At the same time, we should recognize that because curse has not been lifted. Things can be much better. And indeed, in many ways because of the spread of the gospel and with it the Christian world. Christian ethics Christian understanding of the thought sign in the set of business and so on. We have made some amazing strides in actually improving the world around us we see that in the simple fact that mission in life expectancy at birth through all of history until after the Industrial Revolution's 27 to 28 years and now, life expectancy at birth average around the world is about 70% in developed countries like the United States.

It's roughly 81st and that's wonderful.

We cleaned up many environmental problems. Most of the waters of all the developed countries in the world are cleaner now than they have been in the hundreds of years, hundreds and hundreds of years. This should motivate us to take good care of this planet to do what the Cornwall Alliance calls godly dominion based on Genesis 128 where God tells us to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and over it that the minion we believe should look like men and women creating the image of God working lovingly together to enhance the fruitfulness safety and the beauty of the earth, to the glory of God and the benefit of our neighbors. That's why we appreciate you and Cornwall Alliance for the stewardship of creation, so Moscow what a great resource you and your organization are for these types of issues that push back against the godless humanistic secular view of the creation that God made and replace that with a biblical understanding of the environment so we thank you so much for coming on the Christian world view continued blessing to you and Cornwall Alliance and I will look forward to talking to you sometime down the road again. Okay, hope you enjoy the interview with Kalb Eisner. We just love having them on the program he he and his organization or a a voice crying in the wilderness on this issue of environmentalism. You hear it's all about settled science, global warming is happening, we need global governance to deal with it. We need to radically alter everything the government needs to be involved in every area of your life and then you hear Kalb Eisner and Cornwall give you not just opinions but facts based on data about what's going again. We have two resources available in light of today's interview by Cal his DVD message 80 minute message climate change in the Christian. Also his booklet. The 15 page booklet, the cosmic consequences of Christ's cross work.

He talked about that just a little bit just a few minutes ago one or both are available for a donation of any amount to the Christian world view is go to our website the Christian world or call one AAA 646-2233 right there with a Box 401, Excelsior, MN 55331 that information be given out right after the program today. Both these would help you be informed on this important issue will come back.

We have a lot more soundbites coming up in the world of current events on this issue do you shop itself. You can support the Christian world through Amazon smile program, which donates half a percent of the purchase price of eligible product to the charitable organization of your choice.

All you have to do is go to and designate overcome her foundation as your charity of choice to overcome her foundation is the official name of the nonprofit organization that directs the Christian worldview is you don't pay more for your purchases.

Rather, Amazon directly half a percent of your eligible purchases to the Christian world. What a great opportunity to benefit this ministry.

Again, and designate overcome her foundation is your charity of choice. Thank you for your support that had been all that's Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, we ought to never become indifferent to the slaughter of the innocents taking place in our country. This is why we are offering a DVD series entitled life is best that will equip you to stand for life and against this injustice in his two DVDs that are 13 episodes that address all the facets of abortion from the worldview battle to what you can do for a limited time you can order the life is best DVD series for a donation of any amount to the Christian world view normal retail is $49 plus shipping. Go to the Christian world call one AAA 646-2233 right to Box 401, Excelsior, MN 55331 final segment of the day here in the Christian world view radio program. Thank you for joining us as we talked about creation, stewardship versus environmental idolatry, which leads to global governance and often we put together programs we asked the question why is this an important topic. If it doesn't fit in with our mission to sharpen the biblical worldview. Christians doesn't does this topic do that is to sharpen your biblical worldview or does that share the good news of the gospel then sent us. We won't do that topic.

It has to really fit into that and so this topic of environmentalism you think will why is this important wealth that is important is the gospel granted but this environmental topic.

It is really like a competing religion is putting the earth before God and Christians.

I think get easily drawn into this because we love God's creation and they can, we can easily be influenced by the default that's really of what's being told to us about global warming. Today we have to do something so we need to hold the tension here between the call to protect and conserve the environment used and be stewards of it as Kalb Eisner talked about today and yet not letting environmentalism be used as a lever to just expand unlimited government power over our lives. We lose all our important freedoms in America because what is being proposed in this green new deal. Another environmental said you know what proponents and policies in the past. This was even more extreme is just a way to get the one world governing power because this is a global issue right so we need global governance to deal with this global threat to us, and Christians who read Revelation other parts of Scripture, people start talking about that we know where that's going through. The Bible says things are going in the future with some kind of global governance listener Cory Booker, the senator from New Jersey talking about this green new deal.

He talks about it in in in terms of and with the passion of religious fervor.

Our planet is in peril and we need to be bold for the reasons why sign on to the resolution) for the resolution of the green new deal and there's a lot of people now the ball back to you will will we used to govern our dreams that way.

Never going to the moon and so we need to be bold again in America we have three possible we push the bounds of human potential that is our history and when the plan has been peril in the past, who came forward to save her from the scourge of Nazi totalitarian regimes we see the planet from or consonants for financial ruin. We came with the Marshall plan for history is standing up and saying, look, humanity is in crisis is going to be like in the whole. I purposely play that after the interview Kalb question because you can get the facts first about what's going on that the planet is not in peril from Kalb Eisner and then hear the religious fervor of Cory Booker try to tell us we must do something. It's our history to save this planet. It's literally ridiculous is what it is but there's a motive behind it. I'm not even sure he knows he probably does, but the motive is to grab more government power BS with the left is all about was go to Alexandria, Cassio Cortez, who was the main spokesperson the new congressman from New York very popular now in international politics is that she had to say about the green new deal, new deal on CNN so incredibly excited that we are going to transition this country back on a comprehensive agenda, social the resolution just 14 pages long. By some estimates could cost trillions calls for a revolution in the way we live viewing climate change as an existential threat to the higher world buyer route rising sea levels. Increasingly violent storms of famine and mass migrations is what we faithfully worn the radical change isn't embraced now incremental policy solutions are not the green new deal calls for a 10 year national mobilization. The goal in one short decade to bring greenhouse gas emissions to zero. Meet 100% of energy needed by renewable sources overhaul transportation systems create millions of high-paying jobs bring equality in healthcare and equal justice for underserved minority and impoverished communities okay with.

We start talking about existential threats.

Otherwise this a threat to our very existence. And did you hear the comprehensive nature. This is an overall not just the energy system, but racial injustice and economic coming. This is this is the whole shebang here take over everything under the guise of saving the plan under under environmentalism. That's why this is an important topic that the thing to do. One final sound bite by Alexandria will cost your Cortez this this is a comparison between a morning interview she did on the same day in and evening interview. Look how the tune gets changed. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes actually there right what this requires is massive government intervention have no problem saying that characterize what were doing as though it's like some kind of government takeover. So which is it that this does take massive government intervention.

Every person should be afraid of that and then later the same day. Now this doesn't require that this the ruse of the right so you can see the amount of falsehoods and misinformation campaign that this has not why we did this topic today.
