Arnold Schwarzenegger bashes AOC’s Green New Deal as “bogus” and a “marketing tool”

The Terminator is unimpressed with Ocasio-Cortez and her little Green New Deal, and he’s calling it out in a new interview. From the Hill:

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) in a new interview likens the Green New Deal proposed by House progressives to “a slogan” and a type of “marketing tool.”

“Something that is very well intentioned, but, I think, bogus,” he said in an interview with The Atlantic published Friday.

The former governor acknowledged that the legislation may generate new buzz for combatting climate change, but added, “[t]o me, the only thing that really matters is: How do we move forward with our goals? And this means that we stop increasing the amount of greenhouse gases and pollution that we put out there.”

He went on to say that any real plan to lower emissions should copy the state of California, which has already cut emissions:

“We in California have shown that it can be done, and we have shown how to do it. And therefore, if the nation really wants to be serious in reducing greenhouse gases by 25 percent like we did, all they have to do is copy us. That’s what states are supposed to do, to be the laboratory for the federal government, and just have the federal government copy very good ideas done by various states,” he added.



I think the problem is that morons like AOC really believe that we need to cut out emissions completely, which will only happen if you completely and utterly dismantle the entire economy.

BUT, as I found out when I was looking up this story, this isn’t the first time he’s crapped on the Green New Deal, it’s just that nobody noticed it before:

However, as we all know, they’re not really serious about emissions, this is just a scheme for communists to take over the economy. That used to be a kooky conspiracy theory, until the leftists themselves admitted it.
