Sen. Feinstein debates children over climate change

Dianne Feinstein Fumbles in Meeting With Young Climate Activists Over Green New Deal Dianne Feinstein video: Senator tells youth climate change activists "I know what I'm doing"

About 15 middle- and high school students in the San Francisco Bay area met with Feinstein on Friday, asking the six-term senator whether she would vote for the ambitious climate change proposal introduced earlier this month by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Sen.

"Some scientists have said we have 12 years to turn this around", a girl told the senator.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein disagreed with a group of schoolchildren over climate change Friday and saw a video of the tense exchange hit the Internet, CNN reports. "So I don't think that working on an issue for 30 years alone is what qualifies as - as what makes someone qualified to solve an issue", Ocasio-Cortez said in a clear swipe at Feinstein.

An activist subsequently said, "The government is supposed to be for the people, by the people...." "And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, is it okay to still have children?"

"I'm trying to do the best I can, which was to write a responsible resolution", Feinstein said. You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway, I don't respond to that.

"And I'm just not here to listen to this ... belief that is not grounded in reality", she also warned, saying that "climate delayers are the new climate deniers".

"I understand that", Feinstein said.

The entire exchange, however, is more than ten minutes long and in the full interaction Feinstein explains to the kids her stance, including telling them she may vote for the Green New Deal. Edward J. Markey (Mass.). "I don't respond to that", Feinstein added. The veteran Democrat seemed to harshly criticize the children for their their requests that the longterm lawmaker back the 'Green New Deal, ' accusing them of presenting an ultimatum. I've been in the Senate for over a quarter of a century and I know what can pass and I know what can't pass. "And I'm like, 'You try". Many others have felt the effects far worse, as more and more devastating wildfires and other natural disasters continue to occur.

If that was Ocasio-Cortez's solution, that means that some new college graduates have been denied their first step up the ladder to success, and her own constituents may be denied service.

The meeting was organized by the Sunrise Movement, the same climate group that staged a sit-in in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office to demand she support the GND after the midterms.

Feinstein stated shortly after Nazi Republican billionaire, lifelong fascist and most of his life a Democrat, Trump was "selected" in November 2016 that she thought 70-year-old Trump would grow into his job!

The young group proceeds to say that they are the ones affected, despite not being old enough to vote, at which point Feinstein encourages them to run for office.
