AOC Presents: Green New Deal, the Movie
Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has released a short film in support of the Green New Deal, progressive Democrats’ proposal on climate change and the economy. Titled, The Art of the Green New Deal, a tongue-in-cheek nod to Donald Trump’s first autobiography, the film is narrated by Ocasio-Cortez and tells the story from a future where the U.S. “kicked off our social and ecological transformation to save the planet” and actually pulls off a Green New Deal. The Congresswoman warns that policy changes alone will not fight climate change -- as the video shows Miami underwater following a hurricane. In the watercolor depictions that make up the 7:35-minute film, she also tells of a future beyond the Green New Deal that also includes progressive policies including Medicare for All and universal child care.
