Even people on the left are abandoning ship on the Green New Deal. Lifezette reports that Patrick Moore, the co-founder of the environmentalist group Greenpeace, ripped into New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the weekend as a “pompous little twit,” saying the Green New Deal plan she’s advocating is “completely crazy.”
In a series of tweets, Moore argued that Ocasio-Cortez, who has called for drastically reducing fossil fuel production, doesn’t realize what would happen across the world if the radical plan were implemented.
“If fossil fuels were banned, every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating,” Moore said in a tweet Saturday directed at Ocasio-Cortez.
“You would bring about mass death,” he also said.
Moore said, “You don’t have a plan to grow food for eight billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities.”
Moore also unloaded on her for calling climate change “our World War II.”
“It’s her @GND that would be worse than WW2,” he said.
“Imagine no fuel for cars, trucks, tractors, combines, harvesters, power-plants, ships, aircraft, etc. Transport of people & goods would grind to a halt.”
