AOC on the global Green New Deal

Great speech. She addresses the bogus notion that somehow stating the scientific facts is alarmist, that there is somehow a middle ground that doesn't require the bold action necessary to avert real disaster. She also throws in an accurate dig on capitalism and how its greed has created this crisis. And that we must move toward a "cooperative, collaborative world" that operates on a different paradigm and value structure. The Green New Deal is a step in that direction.

However she is wrong that all governments are not on track to meet the Paris agreement goals. Keep in mind that in Jeremy Rifkin's new book The Green New Deal the EU has been working on it for over a decade now and it's making great progress toward meeting those goals.
