Freshman Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has proposed a sweeping environmental plan she calls the "Green New Deal”, that would basically wipe out the oil and gas industry but guarantee those displaced workers good jobs.

And that's just the start of it.

Here's what you had to say about it:

Lana from Dill City first, "This "Green New Deal" is the craziest idea yet! I'm a rancher and God designed the earth to cleanse itself by nature."

Eddie writes, "…this "Green New Deal" is about stealing the green in your wallets for a made-up cause, and I was under the impression we arrested and jailed snake oil salesmen."

Kelly from Silo says, "We must do something to reverse the damage we are doing to our planet. I'm not saying we do the extreme levels she has proposed."

A majority of the responses were similar to Warren's, watching online in Colorado, "I am personally offended by the utter stupidity of the "New Green Deal.”

But Margaret says, "These ideas will help the next generation preserve our planet. Why do you decide the future? Capitalism will thrive taking these strides."

From Briana, "It is a socialist bill trying to disguise itself as a great thing for the planet."

Finally, from Ann, "I think I saw this on an episode of the Jetsons when I was in junior high."
