Idealism or inevitable? Greening of America well underway

There are few lightning rods in Congress more strike-prone these days than U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democrat perhaps better known through her social media acronym “AOC.” She introduced a House resolution in February calling for a “Green New Deal,” which is more a manifesto than a plan and criticized by some as embracing socialist economics.

The irony is that parts of AOC’s “Green New Deal” already seem A-OK with trends well under way in the nation’s capitalist markets...


Ken Notes: I am a fan of the new market driven move to a greener America. I think legislators should focus on clearing the paths needed to get to a renewable future rather than mandating how we get there.
