The Pro-Extinction Caucus: 61 Dems Against the Green New Deal with No Plan of Their Own

The Pro-Extinction Caucus: 61 Dems Against the Green New Deal with No Plan of Their Own

Of course, that caucus is chaired by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California), who has been massively dismissive of climate action like the Green New Deal, which she once characterized as “the green dream or whatever.” However, nearly all members of House Democratic leadership — with the exception of Assistant House Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-New Mexico) — are also opposed to the Green New Deal and have no specific climate plans of their own. This includes House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland), House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-South Carolina), and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-New York).

Here’s who else makes up the grim reaper’s rank-and-file in the Democratic Party, given their lack of support for the Green New Deal, and lack of any meaningful policies to fight global warming. We’ve categorized the pro-extinction caucus alphabetically by state. Is your representative on this list?
