What I gathered from watching @AOC special on Green New Deal with @allinwithchris

The climate rhetoric is heavy doomsday, catastrophism, and pessimistic.

There is no explanation of how the GND policies actually solves any problems. She mentions "magic wands"
The Congresswoman has a repertoire of talking points that are poorly timed and not responsive to questions.

Her knowledge of climate science and policy is woefully inadequate to effectively promote the Green New Deal. She needs allies & intellectuals providing policy details.
However, there is no sense of optimism or "we can get this done". Instead, it's just a litany of how broken everything is, how everyone's life sucks, and there's no hope.

We are all going to die in 12 years. Panic!
The GOP needs to change their strategy and listen to advice from folks my age (millenials) who understand (climate) science, politics and the issues affecting the younger generation.
Okay, an argument is that the Green New Deal was purposely batshit stupid in order to move the Overton Window toward climate action from the right.

Come on. That's not how the Left works. Stop with that nonsense.
Former Congressman Bob Inglis showed up and got called a moron.

He is a Republican that believes climate policy should, you know, actually involve the climate.

He dumped on the Guaranteed Income (UBI) and the crowd groaned.
The GOP needs to avoid like the plague climate scientists who are partisan hacks.

If you peruse the top climate communicator Twitter feeds, then you see non-stop anti-conservative or anti-Trump bigotry.
One popular climate scientist has repeatedly called for the death penalty for conservative figures "guilty of treason".

You'd have read non-stop Russian collusion consistent with the most loathsome conspiracy theory nutjobs.
This is not isolated rhetoric or behavior. It is pervasive. It is incentivized and mimicked for career advancement.

So many aspects of the Russian collusion hoax are shared with climate change activism. This should not be surprising.
