Markey whitewashes more troublesome aspects of Green New Deal

Re “Green New Deal is more than a resolution — it’s a revolution”: While Senator Edward J. Markey’s April 15 op-ed emphasized the data surrounding a desire for clean energy and concern for climate change, it almost entirely failed to mention what is more widely viewed to be the much more confrontational aspects of this resolution, such as guaranteeing a job, wages, benefits, housing, economic security, and other items not specific to climate change.

Be honest with your constituents, senator, and present us with the proper balance of facts so that we can understand how you may succeed or fail on our behalf, instead of presenting us only with the simple and popular data points that you think will make you look good.
