Andrew Stephenson sorry a lot of it is not expansion, and it is suicide for the country.

Andrew Stephenson retrofits have been done for a long time now,not exactly a new idea. And whenever possible could mean ending human life on earth, that is idiotic. "

That’s kind of why the hyperbole here is so silly. A lot of it is just incremental expansions of existing programs.

Yeah… Like which “renewables” are going to be viable on scale to make million-citizen cities function on a year round and-all season basis?"

You use it to displace thermal power when it’s available. When it’s not it’s no worse than running the fossil plants anyway. Storage technology continues to evolve.

“And what the “bleep” are “efficiency retrofits” except more verbiage and cow farts? "

Putting in better windows, or an ultra-high efficiency furnace, or better yet ground source heat pumps.

This deal is so awesome that Mitch Mconell said there should be a vote on it and the dems had a cow , meaning they know it will destroy them if they do vote for it so they want to enact is in secret and in stages.

Andrew Stephenson AOC wants to ruin and bankrupt the country with an ideology that has been shown to be a disaster all the time in history , the derangement is on your part and any of her supporters. The Dems do not even want to vote on it for crying out loud. LMAO!

Replacing fossil fuels with renewables/nuclear wherever possible and efficiency retrofits are both great ideas…

OK Ms. Stephenson… I’ll bite re the GND – “but contains a number of excellent ideas that we can aspire towards.”… So name one…

There was an interesting piece on Fox about California’s failed attempt to put high speed rail between LA and San Francisco.

Andrew, great link to show the stupidity of California.
Unfortunately NDP Premier Horgan just had a meeting in Seattle to discuss a high speed rail link between Vancouver and Portland.

These projects look neat on paper, but the people in the rest of the Province including the Island are too Politically ignorant to realize that they will be paying for something that they will likely never use.

For example the NDP was elected on a promise that they would stop the tolls on Vancouver’s new Port Mann Bridge. That means the rest of the Province has to pay for a bridge that they will will never use. There should be a test before a person can vote.

AOC derangement syndrome?

The GND is obviously a very idealistic and aggressive proposal but contains a number of excellent ideas that we can aspire towards.

Baffling that such insanity should receive any coverage.
