Feinstein’s Green New Deal is ‘like shifting to Deck B on the Titanic,’ progressives say

Courage Campaign Executive Director Eddie Kurtz said it was “news to me” that Feinstein was not dropping her more moderate climate change proposal, and had scathing words for the senator, saying going forward with something like her draft proposal instead of supporting the Green New Deal was “unconscionable.”

“It offers comfort to the Joe Manchins of the world, who get a lot of funding from the fossil fuel industry, and allows them to pretend they care about climate change without doing something that matters,” Kurtz said, referencing the Democratic West Virginia senator who has called the Green New Deal a “dream” that he doesn’t support.
