He noted that the core of the Green New Deal is moving to a zero-carbon energy system within ten years, which would decimate many industries related to oil and gas production. Though Ocasio-Cortez removed the document in response to backlash, and her defenders claimed critics were referring to a fake copy of the proposal, the document remains archived on the congresswoman's website.

The proposals known as the Green New Deal were crafted in conjunction with Senator Ed Markey of MA.

McConnell and other Republicans oppose the plan but are hoping to force Senate Democrats - including a crowd of 2020 presidential candidates - to vote on a proposal Republicans say would drive the economy off a cliff and lead to a huge tax increase.

By adding relief programs and financial reconstruction, the Green New Deal carves out plans for the United States to "take a leading role in reducing emissions through economic transformation".

"I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal", he tweeted. "The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it, right?" she said. Sherrod Brown, pointedly declined Tuesday to attach his name and dismissed liberal activists' contention that he has to support the Green New Deal in order to prove his commitment to the issue.

When the resolution came out on Thursday, roughly 65 House Democrats co-sponsored it, while fewer than a dozen senators did the same.

Markey predicted more Democrats would sign on as the plan gets better known and said some Republicans may back it.

"Republicans don't want to debate climate change, they only want to deny it", Markey said in a statement. His status as the vice chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus suggests he could help woo Republican support for the measure. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and backed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). Ed Markey of MA, the proposal calls for dramatic steps to virtually eliminate US greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

President Donald Trump slammed the plan at a rally Monday in Texas, saying it would "shut down American energy".

"There's another victim of the Green New Deal, it's ice cream". John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
