"Climate: 600 Groups Present 'Green New Deal' Demands"

"Progressive organizers today [Thursday] presented lawmakers with a formal wish list for 'Green New Deal' legislation, asking for a sweeping plan to address climate change and move to 100 percent renewable energy.

In a letter to lawmakers on Capitol Hill, more than 600 advocacy groups, including Friends of the Earth, Food & Water Watch, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sunrise Movement, laid down a set of principles, fleshing out the 'Green New Deal' proposal floated by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

At the top of the list is an end to all fossil fuel leasing and subsidies and a transition to all renewables 'by 2035 or earlier.'"
