Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally made the details of the “Green New Deal” public. The highlights include ending the use of fossil fuels by 2030, decommissioning every nuclear power plant in the next ten years, ending air travel, mandating all new jobs be unionized, rebuilding “every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency” and blanket “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

Now that the outline of the “Green New Deal” is available for public scrutiny, it is worthwhile to take a look at all of our lawmakers who have endorsed Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. According to the Sunrise Movement – the outside organization advocating for the “Green New Deal” –  more than 100 congressional Democrats have agreed to cosponsor Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution for a Green New Deal. Ten Democrats who have announced their bid for the 2020 presidential elections have also backed the Green New Deal.

Below is the complete list of Democrats who have embraced the Green New Deal.
