WASHINGTON – Congressional Democrats have proposed a ‘Green New Deal’ to address climate change and economic inequality. The heart of the bill is to create clean renewable energy with bicycle powered generators.
“Americans are too fat. Those stored calories could be unlocked to create a clean energy source through cycling. Our plan proposes issuing a bicycle powered generator to every household. Creating electricity through cycling would help save the planet and also trim our waistlines,” said Democratic spokesperson to Mendaco Press.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he intends to call up the “Green New Deal ” for a vote in the Senate.
Never have I seen more compelling evidence that the time to act on #climatechange is now. There is no time to play politics – to pretend that climate change isn’t real. Proud to stand with @AOC & @SenMarkey to announce our #GreenNewDeal pic.twitter.com/QECMhQZxPA
