question mark confusionSaying the nation cannot regulate itself out of climate change, a GOP lawmaker on Capitol Hill has introduced what he calls a "Green Real Deal." OneNewsNow spoke with someone who says the congressman is trying to "snatch defeat from the jaws of victory."

"History will judge harshly my Republican colleagues who deny the science of climate change," Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) said at Wednesday's rollout of the Green Real Deal. "Similarly, those Democrats who would use climate change as a basis to regulate out of existence the American experience will face the harsh reality that their ideas will fail."

As described by Gaetz, the Green Real Deal involves four platforms:

  • an international marketplace that is fair to American innovators,
  • the modernization of the nation's electric grid,
  • the unlocking of federal lands for research, development, testing, and evaluation, and
  • an inclusive technology doctrine.

"Do we really believe that if we outlaw cars, cows, planes and buildings that the rest of the world will follow?" Gaetz asked in a jab at Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's (D-New York) Green New Deal. "Is there a single piece of evidence that emerging economies will put off their own economic development for a generation to accommodate an environmental concern, no matter how legitimate?"

Steve Milloy of Junk Science takes exception to the plan.

"It's the same sort of climate bedwetting that people like me have been fighting for the last 25 years," Milloy told OneNewsNow on Thursday. "We had this tremendous victory against the Green New Deal and he comes up with this total retrograde proposal with retrograde language. Has he forgotten who's president? It's hard to know what's going on in that guy's mind."

Milloy has challenged Gaetz to a debate.
