The Green New Deal seems to have been written by individuals who do not understand the science. The problem with fossil fuels is NOT just the carbon - it's the greenhouse gases that results from their extraction, processing, transmission and combustion. The 'carbon frame' has failed us; it's time to focus on - and consistently refer to greenhouse gas emissions - not just carbon. The mistaken reference to carbon encourage natural gas - which is probably as bad a coal given the fugitive emissions of methane. It is inadequate to claim that 'we mean greenhouse gases measured in terms of their carbon dioxide equivalent' since such claims are what resulted in the unfortunate and disappointing Washington Initiative that referred only to carbon (p 21) and carbon dioxide (p. 22). No organization that really is concerned about global warming should endorse the Oregon Green New Deal as currently written.
