“Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is crafting a climate change policy he hopes will appeal to both environmentalists and the blue-collar voters who elected Donald Trump, according to two sources, carving out a middle ground approach that will likely face heavy resistance from green activists,” Reuters reported Friday.

Zero senators voted “yea,” with 57 voting “nay” and 43 Democrats voting “present.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went berserk this week after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized the Green New Deal and her doomsday predictions about climate change.
