Biased? Politifact Tries To Defend Green New Deal, People RIP Them

The Green New Deal would bring some swift, overhauling changes to the country, specifically to its agricultural and transportation systems—something climate change advocates claim needs to happen over the next 12 years or the planet is lost.

Among these changes include the near-elimination of air travel and fossil fuel usage, something Florida Senator Rick Scott mentioned during a speech on the climate change proposal.

Scott said Democrats were “working towards ending air travel (to be replaced with high-speed rail),” Politifact reports.

This is something Politifact argues is not in the proposal and even made a video to defend Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is pushing the effort through the House.

From Twitchy:

Look, the Green New Deal is garbage. It was introduced by a socialist who prefers being “morally right” to being factually correct, is well out of reach of current technology, and would cost an estimated $94 trillion over its 10-year implementation, or around $650,000 per household.

But what really gets us is the cleanup effort by the people who introduced it, the presidential candidates who cosponsored it, and the mainstream media to assure us that the FAQ outlining the Green New Deal that was posted on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s own website and sent out to the media doesn’t represent what’s in the actual resolution. At all. Or maybe Ocasio-Cortez just pulled it off her website because it was widely ridiculed.

No surprise, then, that PolifiFact is helping clean up Ocasio-Cortez’s mess, again assuring us that the very FAQ her office put out isn’t anything like the actual resolution.

Check it out:

Despite Politifact’s claim, the FAQ which Ocasio-Cortez’s office uploaded then took down did say the country ought to push towards flightless travel or “where air travel stops becoming necessary.”

The FAQ reads: “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…”

And, the Green New Deal said it is intended to: “Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with the goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle.”
