One of AOC’s Worst Green New Deal Ideas is Included in Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ Plan

Brad Polumbo of FEE reports that AOC’s Civilian Climate Corps is included in the Build Back Better plan.

The C3 Take
  • If enacted, the Civilian Climate Corps would be a federally funded conservation program that increases the size of the federal government while doing little to address climate change.
  • In addition to existing federal conservation programs, landowners and the private sector are already invested in environmental conservation.
  • Instead of increasing government waste, the Biden administration should look to boost conservation efforts by empowering property owners and relying on bottom-up solutions.

“With the proposal gaining momentum in Washington, DC, it’s well worth examining its actual merits. And even a cursory glance reveals that in reality the plan would simply waste money, create zero jobs on net, and do nothing to mitigate climate change.”
