Wednesday was a blockbuster day for congressional testimony.

While disgraced attorney Michael Cohen was telling, to quote Shakespeare, “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing,” CFACT’s Marc Morano appeared before Congress and exposed everything about the Green New Deal.

As Morano explained to Congress, “The Green New Deal has very little to do with the environment or climate… Global warming is merely the latest environmental scare with the same solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning.”

CFACT’s submission is filled with the facts, figures and history that expose the false premises the GND rests on and the false agendas that lurk behind it.

Marc pointed out that in 1908 fossil fuels accounted for 85% of U.S. energy consumption. In 2015, it was more or less the same.  Shutting off America’s energy, as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed, without a viable replacement, would destroy us.

As Marc summed up before Congress:

“The Green New Deal has to be opposed, exposed and defeated. We must challenge the economics, ideology and science claims of this deal.”
