If you're suddenly hearing more about climate politics these days , that's no accident. A new generation of activists have pushed the issue to the top of voters' minds and politicians' platforms. This is the story of the people doing the pushing.
In the past two years, climate change has gone from the backburner to the center stage. Why? It all started with a protest in Nancy Pelosi’s office in 2018. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with a then-obscure youth activist group called Sunrise Movement to launch the fight for a Green New Deal. It took a lot of planning, courage, and also luck to make it happen, and we’re bringing you the inside story.  Featuring Varshini Prakash and Sarah Duckett of Sunrise Movement and Waleed Shahid of Justice Democrats.
What motivates young people to dedicate their lives to climate activism? Fear of the future under climate change is one motivation… Another is the opportunity to build a better future under the Green New Deal.  Featuring Varshini Prakash and Alex O’Keefe of Sunrise Movement, and three of the young activists who had a viral confrontation with Senator Dianne Feinstein in early 2019.

In 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, and the Green New Deal became her signature policy.

What is it like to spend your whole life in California, only to have the state you love more deeply than anything turn into a hellscape of wildfire? Meet 23-year-old Sunrise Movement activist and writer Nikayla Jefferson. In this episode, she describes her life growing up in San Diego, experiencing the rise of wildfires, and how she found her voice in activism and writing.
Amy Westervelt of the DrillIed podcast co-hosts this episode as we delve into the question of why it's taken so much time, and a movement led by teenagers and 20-somethings, to push politicians to get serious about climate action. Featuring bestselling authors Naomi Klein and Bill McKibben.
Detroit is a microcosm of many of the issues the Green New Deal is trying to solve: it’s faced flooding and extreme weather and has suffered severe consequences of pollution, environmental racism, deindustrialization, and austerity.

"climate grandma" aka source of funds. Not to mention her victim stance on dealing with the Thomas fire "as she drove past it" rather than being on the ground helping those truly devastated by the loss of livelihood and housing. Not to mention she is complaining about a fire "ruining her birthday." From a Ventura native, this is the epitome of virtue signaling / social justice warrior-ism... listening to this selfish, self-centered is rant "mentally, and physically, emotionally traumatic all the way around" lmao. oh the ignorance of privilege .

This insane propaganda is at the top of “staff favorites”. Buh-bye Castbox. Even joe Biden denounces the ill-conceived GND

Castbox has become a straight up propaganda tool. Everyone one wants clean energy but most people still want to be able to travel, eat what and when they want, be able to heat and cool their homes, drive their vehicles, and own homes. None of these things will be allowed the further this gets implemented. These green new deal propositions are being brought to us from very powerful people that essentially believe there are too many people on the planet and every single aspect of our lives need to be micromanaged.
