Choice between planet, economy a 'false notion' -AOC

Initially introduced in 2019, the non-binding resolution seeks to eliminate U.S. greenhouse gas emissions within a decade and transition the economy away from fossil fuels.

"For so long, our movement toward a sustainable future has been divided with really just this false notion that we have to choose between our planet and our economy. And we decided to come together in sweeping legislation that not only rejects that notion, but creates a plan for 20 million union jobs in the United States of America" in several sectors, Ocasio-Cortez said at a news conference on Tuesday (April 20).

It was not immediately clear whether the plan would receive a significantly warmer reception from President Joe Biden's administration than it did from the administration of former President Donald Trump, which did not believe action on climate change was necessary.
