Under a "Green New Deal," what happens to:

  • Your van or SUV big and powerful enough to carry your kids, groceries, tools of your trade, camping equipment, etc.
  • Your backyard grill-or your backyard in the suburbs
  • Your favorite foods, especially if animal-based
  • Your gas stove, water heater, and furnace
  • Your air conditioner
  • Your third child (and maybe the first and second one too—the population needs to decrease)
  • Your job as an auto mechanic, coal miner, truck driver, petroleum engineer, rancher
  • The trucks that collect garbage, deliver groceries, bring concrete to construction strikes, haul goods of all kinds
  • Your business (service station, car dealership, factory that requires a lot of reliable electricity, restaurant, HVAC installation and maintenance, etc.)
  • Your vacation in Hawaii (or other place not accessible by train)
  • Fire trucks, ambulances, police cars?

Remember, they want zero fossil fuels—which means no internal combustion engines and electricity only from “clean, renewable” (unreliable, expensive) sources.
