The Green New Deal is an ambitious plan to tackle climate change with specific mandates, such as shifting 100 percent of USA power demands onto renewable sources within a decade.

According to a recent December 2018 public opinion poll conducted by the Yale Program on Climate Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, 80% of registered voters surveyed support a Green New Deal, including 92% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans.

"An early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn't represent the GND [Green New Deal] resolution got published to the website by mistake", Chakrabarti tweeted.

However, Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, admitted that the FAQ shared with NPR and posted on Ocasio-Cortez's website was incomplete.

Elaborating on her stance, Cortez said that the funding for her latest proposal would have to come from sources that expand beyond the realm of traditional taxation.

The plan does not explicitly call for eliminating the use of fossil fuels, The Associated Press reported.

"We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast..." the website said. The document was later removed by Ocasio-Cortez's office, yet the host still asked why people should pay for those unwilling to work.

This fake proposal circulated, but it is different from the legitimate, far-left proposals offered by Ocasio-Cortez.
