    It would probably be more of a news story if the student government at Berkeley didn’t support the Green New Deal.

    Campus Reform reports:

    Berkeley student gov: $93 TRILLION Green New Deal is ‘ultimately financially wise’

    Students at the University of California, Berkeley passed a resolution proclaiming their support of “sweeping climate reform” and the “intent” of New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, despite the plan’s whopping $93 trillion price tag.

    UC-Berkeley student government representatives passed the resolution with unanimous consent, affirming the Berkeley student body’s endorsement of “the intent and purpose of the Green New Deal to rapidly and significantly lower carbon emissions across the economy,” and calling on the U.S. federal government to adopt “an aggressive, economy-wide approach to lower U.S. carbon emissions by 55% by 2030 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, prioritizing the use of cost-efficient solutions.”

    The text of the resolution listed several specific goals including the achievement of “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers, including adequately addressing disproportionate pollution burdens placed on frontline communities” and the complete abolition of all California gas, oil, and coal production.

    The resolution also emphasizes the importance of “promoting justice and equity by repairing historic, stopping current, and preventing future oppression” of groups such as “migrant communities,” “women,” and “low-income people,” and asserts that the negative impacts of climate change disproportionately impact “underserved frontline communities,” which are “the least equipped to react.”

    This is a “dog bites man” story. The Berkeley student government tends to be farther left than Marx, Lenin, or Stalin. A much better “man bites dog” story would be if they did something that DID NOT promote socialism, communism, suppression of free speech, or antisemitism.

    Obviously not STEM students. They can’t do math or logic.

    Last time I checked, about 2 seconds ago, it required a time machine to fix the past. Is AOC going to claim that she has one of those?
