“Kind of Stupid”, “Little Extreme”, “Sends Poor Message”, Miami Students Were For “Green New Deal”, Until They Actually Found Out What’s In It

FLORIDA – University of Miami students were asked whether they were for or against New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” in a video released by Campus Reform Monday.

Students were initially for the deal, which aims to cut carbon emissions, but had different remarks once finding out what the deal exactly entailed.

One student’s initial perception of the deal was that it was “progressive” and would help “push the world forward.”

“Just from like knowing like who’s endorsed it and just like some little things, it sounds great,” another student said.

“I think if we didn’t do that, then we’re gonna be killing ourselves basically, so we need to take care of ourselves,” a different student said.

Students were then asked their opinions on the following provisions:

  • Eliminate all carbon emissions from coal, oil and natural gas in 10 years
  • Providing economic security to those unwilling to work
  • High speed rail would replace most air travel

Many students expressed the plan’s timeliness was unfeasible with one student saying the deal “sounds like a rage.”

“I think 10 years is a little extreme,” another student said. “I feel like there is a big, global market and economic impact of oil businesses albeit it might not be good for the environment, but you can’t deny there’s a big economic impact of these companies.”

“I feel like it kind of sends the poor message of, you know, you can just get away with not doing anything and you know getting money,” according to a student. “It’s kind of stupid.”

The part about economic security for those not willing to work was originally in the Deal’s FAQ document, leaked by Ocasio-Cortez staffers. But the document was taken down and the resolution does not contain this provision.

The resolution has also called for “high-quality health care,” “repairing historic oppression,” and “dramatically expanding and upgrading renewable power sources,” according to NPR.
