    Except that those "adversaries" are going green too.

    China's total capacity is 130 gigawatts -- about half the world's total. 130 gigawatts is enough to power approximately 4.3 million U.S. homes ( and many more Chinese homes, which use a tenth of the electricity of American homes.) China also has close to 200 gigawatts of wind power.

I believe in the right of people to practice their religion, but separation of church and state prevents this from being taught in schools or forced by government on all.

    Another point that the left misses, is green is the waste energy of plants. The sun gives off all wavelengths of visible energy and the plants releases the green like a waste product. Green is like the exhaust fumes of an automobile. It is not fuel. We see green, because the plants uses red, blue and yellow and rejects most of the green. Green is the plant waste product of the sunlight fuel. If you grew a plant under green light, it would die in the same way as no light. The New Green Deal worships photon exhaust fumes.

    We call it green, because that is what we see in terms of plant color. The plant eats red, yellow and blue and farts out green. The plant photon farts and energy exhaust fumes, creates an optical green halo, that is superficial. This appeals to those who don't go that deep. Underneath the green photon farts is the life fuel and energy of the plant that is life. The left likes plant photon farts, which appears to give them a buzz. This green photon fart worship it what makes it a religion, since they idealize the exhaust fumes as the source of life. This is not supported by science.
    The point flew so far over your head. The point is not the color green. Maybe the Republicans should propose the Orange New Deal then.

    Alternative energy is alternative now. Someday it will be all we have. Oil is not unlimited.

    The amount of missing money at the Pentagon is in the trillions of dollars, 20 trillion or more over a number of years. Just a fraction of the missing money would pay for the Green New Deal.

    That myth has already been debunked several times.
