According to a recent December 2018 public opinion poll conducted by the Yale Program on Climate Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, 80% of registered voters surveyed support a Green New Deal, including 92% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans. "It's definitely a great idea", added another.

Murphy saidM, "I think it's absolutely realistic and we need to set our sights high".

"I like that it's progressive, that it's gonna push the world forward".

The billionaire businessman and a proud climate change skeptic stopped short of traditionally branding it the "worst deal" ever, but he apparently believes spending trillions to fully transform and rebuild the U.S. economy would be a waste that'd undermine America's competitive advantage on the world stage.

"To be honest, I think we need those things to live".

Some of the students made clear that they perceive global warming as an apocalyptic concern.

One student had a more serious view of the plan, saying, "if we didn't do that, we're going to be killing ourselves". The youth-led Sunrise Movement, which has spearheaded grassroots organizing in favor of the deal, is planning more than 600 congressional office visits this week to garner support.

"Anything that would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is really important", agreed another.

Called the Green New Deal, co-sponsors of the resolution in the House of Representatives include California Congressman Ro Khanna, Colorado Congressman Joe Neguse, Washington Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, and Wisconsin Congressman Mark Pocan.

"I don't think that that is something that would be able to be done in such a short amount of time", one student said.

The non-binding resolution calls for a 10-year national mobilization to shift the economy away from fossil fuels and to replace them with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

"Sounds like a reach, honestly", says another student, laughing.

Hockett said Ocasio-Cortez does not want to ban airplanes or pay people "unwilling to work".
