>>13922Eliminate 99 percent of cars.
To be fair, under the GND, everyone will need to retrofit their cars with Flintstones-style foot holes or pedals for cycling. The authors state that the GND would like to replace every “combustion-engine vehicle” — trucks, airplanes, boats, and 99 percent of cars — within ten years. Charging stations for electric vehicles will be built “everywhere,” though how power plants will provide the energy needed to charge them is a mystery.
[Fuck them, seriously, I won't give up my old trucks.]Gut and rebuild every building in America.
Markey and Cortez want to “retrofit every building in America” with “state of the art energy efficiency.” I repeat, “every building in America.” That includes every home, factory, and apartment building, which will all need, for starters, to have their entire working heating and cooling systems ripped out and replaced with… well, with whatever technology Democrats are going invent in their committee hearings, I guess.
[Buy guns - lots of guns - do not let them tear down your homes without a fight to the death!]Eliminate air travel.
GND calls for building out “highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.” Good luck Hawaii! California’s high-speed boondoggle is already in $100 billion dollars of debt, and looks to be one of the state’s biggest fiscal disasters ever. Amtrak runs billions of dollars in the red (though, as we’ll see, trains will also be phased out). Imagine growing that business model out to every state in America?
[Trains being eliminated is communist enough! Get fucking lost!]Ban meat.
Ocasio-Cortez admits that we can’t get 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 only way to get rid of farting cows is to get rid of beef.
[You are looking to make A HELL OF LOT of us Burgers very, very angry! We'll keep on ranching, hunting and butchering to get our meat, legal or not!]
