Daniel Turner: Stealth AOC ‘Green New Deal’ now the law in New Mexico, voters be damned.
“Some people will get very rich if the “Green New Deal” were to become law. We should all be curious who those people are. And which politicians they financially back.”
They will that it one state at a time.
Thanks to MLG, NM will now face the penalties of the Green New Deal. MLG signed the “Energy Transition Act” which has the same end goal as the GND: move to 100% carbon free energy. However, prices will increase by 17% and thousands of jobs will be lost. https://t.co/EhTCCrbDJg

By now, the public is well aware of the “Green New Deal” proposed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They have not responded well to calls for forced veganism and banning airplanes, let alone giving up the American way of life made possible by cheap energy.
But while Ocasio-Cortez has taken the brunt of the media focus, environmental groups have developed a new strategy to get their way: pass a type of “Green New Deal” state by state.
It’s a smart tactic. They get friendly, left-leaning state legislators and governors, most of whom they financially backed in the past election, to do their dirty work. While the media is watching AOC marveling over garbage disposals and rejecting the racism of cauliflower, no one is reporting about bad laws taking shape in secret.
That’s exactly how radical green groups want it.
Their latest attempt was in New Mexico, and unfortunately, it succeeded. Newly-elected Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed the “Energy Transition Act” in March. This law requires that New Mexico move to 100 percent carbon-free energy – the same long-term goal as the “Green New Deal.” More
It’s never been about climate or the environment, it’s always been about control. The worst part of all this is that they will not learn a thing from this.
They will wreck New Mexico, and then flee to some place with cheap homes and cheap utilities and then promptly work like busy little bees to vote in the exact same crazy to wherever they move to.
