Dianne Feinstein’s climate change discussion with schoolchildren gets heated

Sen. Dianne Feinstein squares off with children in Green New Deal debate captured on video

Yes, the parents were using their kids as pawns and the group who confronted the California Democrat, the Sunrise Movement, who are pushing lawmakers to back Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) ruinously expensive Green New Deal. It's not just a cute stunt, in many cases, these kiddos are getting serious results.

The children were with the Sunrise Movement, a climate advocacy organisation, and approached Feinstein in hopes she would support the Green New Deal, an ambitious proposal from Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that includes an overhaul of USA energy that seeks to stall the effects of climate change. One of the Sunrise adults chimes in, "We're asking you to be fearless and do this for us and your grandchildren.Any plan that doesn't take bold, transformative action is not going to be what we need".

In a video posted on Facebook by Sunrise Movement, a youth climate-change advocacy group, more than a dozen children and several adults meet with the senator to present her a letter they wrote and ask her to vote "yes" on the deal.

When a girl urges her to vote yes anyway, Feinstein replies, "I may do that ... but it's not a good resolution".

Judging by the video, Feinstein appeared prepared to negotiate at first. You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway, I don't respond to that. The Green New Deal, championed by Democrats Sen.

"Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around", one girl said.

Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez rolled out the resolution that proposed a total overhaul of the USA economy and energy sectors over the next 10 years, coupled with progressive policies unrelated to addressing climate change. I was elected with nearly a million vote plurality. Feinstein repeatedly tells the children that there is "no way to pay" for the plan, and tells the children that she is supporting her own resolution. "And I know what I'm doing", she tells the group.

"Any plan that doesn't take bold, transformative action is not going to be what we need", one young woman said.

The proposal could face a vote in the senate as early as next week.

"I've gotten elected. I just ran", she continues. "So maybe people should listen a little bit".

The Post reported that despite Ocasio-Cortez being back in her district for events with her constituents this past week, no one was able to confirm if she still lived at the Bronx condo that she has had listed on her voter registration since 2012.

"Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein is basically telling a bunch of kids to shut the h*** up because she won an election they couldn't vote in and that means she knows everything".

She cited the Theodore Roosevelt quote about the "Man in the Arena" about how it's not the critic who counts, but the person who's actually trying.

When the students told her she has to listen to them because they voted for them, Feinstein challenged one student on her age until she admitted she was 16.
