Al Jazeera: Democrats push for a Green New Deal to combat climate change


Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Senator Ed Markey recently laid out the goals of a Green New Deal to transform the US economy to combat climate change while creating thousands of jobs in renewable energy.
