There Is No Green New Deal

Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) is expected to do something remarkable Tuesday afternoon. After warning of the world-ending emergency that is climate change, and introducing a bill alongside leftist upstart Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) to introduce a Green New Deal, Markey will abstain from voting in favor of his own bill when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) brings it to the floor.
