She didn’t mention “food justice.”
Everything these people want to do is a “justice” issue. It is one of their favorite buzzwords. As for plain old vanilla equal justice, they don’t care for that anymore because it is effectively “white supremacy” and systematic racism to enforce the law equally and with consistent standards.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling for a ‘wartime scale’ effort to fight climate change in a press conference where progressive lawmakers pledged that money for a 1.5 million-strong ‘climate corps’ will be included in Democrats’ budget reconciliation bill.
‘The question is not just if we are going to do it, but how – how big, how ambitious?’ the New York Democrat said Tuesday morning. ‘Our climate crisis today requires a peaceful but wartime scale mobilization in order to combat the climate crisis.’
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who opened the press conference, said he would ‘ensure’ the climate corps is part of Democrats’ sweeping $3.5 trillion budget bill.
‘I will fight to get the biggest, boldest CCC possible,’ Schumer said.
The idea behind the CCC is modeled after the first Civilian Climate Corps, created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933 during the Great Depression. …”
BTW, the original New Deal was a “Green New Deal.”
The CCC did things like build public parks and trails and reforested a bunch of places to stop soil erosion. They built a lot of the infrastructure which we still use today here in the South. These people are wrapping an idea which used to be completely mainstream in woke language to make it toxic.
Note: The introduction of kudzu in the South was one of the screw ups of that period.
