This is so funny and yet sad. The jokes he makes have a unique punchline to them, however, what makes it sad is that he tries to show as though AOC's ideas were either just jokes that Republicans took too seriously and that AOC is actually smart (now that's funny, because he's serious, lol). AOC has been caught not once, not twice, but countless times showing that she doesn't know anything (three branches of government, reason's to impeach Trump, and many more, look it up, they're hilarious). So I wouldn't come to a comedian/late night talk show host to get my political and economic information, especially if they think AOC is smart.

The main problem with getting ANY of this in the U.S. is that our leaders are fucking fossils of the human race and their mind is so far behind that's it's stuck up their great grand parents ass. A lot of them STILL truly believe that female hysteria is a fucking thing!!! It would be great if we could start converting our cities into walking cities like Japan. But that would require a level of creativity and intelligence that we don't get much of; from people with the wealth and power to actually make any change at all. For one thing why don't we have a high speed rail? why is a train ticket more expensive than a plane? I'm not going to even go into the housing market and the ungodly price gouging going on there! But I, for one can't afford to just pack up and move within walking distance to work. I have a 2 hr commute daily. Because that's how far away I had to go just to afford a place to live. It would be wonderful if the electric car became more viable and affordable. But largely for that you'd need charging stations in rural and low population areas, also the electric companies would have to loosen the rope from around our necks and lower the overall household energy cost. Not to mention the gas companies! They'd have to lower the prices too! And they would have to do all of this all the while researching and developing new sustainable technology and energy production. Because America won't do a damn thing until the technology is out, and working, for a minimum of 10 years before the public even knows about it let alone has it! I know this because, I am an American. Please send help; there are those of us who still have a functioning brain but the majority of us are powerless and lack the wealth to actually do anything about it, other than rage over the internet.

Living costs go higher -> Wages go higher. If wages don't go higher, people can't afford things and then the economy goes to shit again.
If you truly want to fix the issue then remove the cause. Just get rid of people and it's fixed. And no one is gonna worry about it anymore because we are all dead.

This "bill" will be paid one way or the other. We can continue to shuffle the inevitable result into the future until it's disastrously ended by nature's reaction to the assault OR we can make some nearly painless adjustments NOW. Inconvenience is about as strong a word as is needed to describe what we will go through now. Serious PAIN will come for your grandkids (if you chose to have kids) in the form of ecological disasters such as crop failures, rising tides and floods, wildfires across entire regions, droughts, and storms so severe the rich will take to their luxury underground bunkers while the poor die on the surface.
Can you be inconvenienced enough today to stop being a mindless consumer, shop at a thrift store, recycle something, plant a damned tomato plant, don't drive your car for once. Stay home and play with all the stuff you have.

What's sad is how easily the audience is trained and played. Every episode, flash of Trump taken completely out of context with no substantial political commentary. Then a quick barb joke, then move on before the audience can stop to process it. Again and again, for 20 minutes. It literally trains people to associate derisive laughter with the opposition. No wonder there is increasing violence against anyone with a MAGA hat. Look at the way the viewers respond to Trump simply saying "the Green New Deal" after 20 seconds of random anchors and politicians saying it. People laughed and booed. Before John even said a word. Just showing Trump makes these people react. Pitiful. "If it is booed at a Trump rally, it's probably good." That garbage bill would add over 42 TRILLION dollars to the debt in one decade. Nor would it address even half of the problem in the U.S. Nor would it dent even 5% of global emissions.
People need to do independent research. Both sides are evil. Dems and the GOP are all working together to enrich the rich and impoverish everyone else. Open borders means lower wages and higher unemployment. No demographic is more affected by illegal immigration than black men. Doubling the minimum wage only increases unemployment and drops the value of a dollar. The one thing I disagree with Trump on is tax cuts, although 70% of Americans DID benefit from them. The rich don't need tax cuts. And corporations should not be taxed to death like under Obama, that's precisely what hurts the black business community. Corporations should pay taxes with job growth or wage increases for lower and middle positions as write offs. Buybacks do help people with a 401k, but executive bonuses help nobody.

How it works. The rich get a tax. Pass it on. The middle class pay the tax. And the poor receive a tax break. This is why important bills fail. You need to tax the corporation and limit profit based on a income verses profit. Once they reach a non threat level then they can gouge the middle class.

“The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer, and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.”
— The Washington Post, Nov. 2, 1922

+Andrew Donaldson It's from 1922. By the 1970s they were all pushing the coming Ice Age scare. "When meteorologists take an average of temperatures around the globe, they find that the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three decades. The trend shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age."

Hard to believe the global warming nonsense is still going on all these years after every prediction failed to come true. CO2, CH4, and H2O are not greenhouse gasses. They have a cooling effect by making our atmosphere more efficient at shedding heat back to space. NASA even admitted this in 2012.

So if I understand this correctly; In just 21years we will experience floods, food shortages, fires etc of proportions previously unheard of, if we don't do something NOW. But noone would ever suggest something as crazy as banning cows or airtravel. You are simply going to develop low co2 jetfuel, rebuild the powergrid etc. Raise taxes of course, but only for the rich, low income families will benifit but they would never use their benefits in a way that would be non enviromentally friendly, right? And if it wasn't for AOC and her new deal then nobody would care about new technology! I mean it's not like scientists have been working on this for years or anything.

If you are stupid enough to fall for the leftist propaganda you have an excuse until you hear the truth. People like Oliver have heard the truth yet they shill for evil. You shill for Satan and you pay the price for it. Your soul will be slowly consumed with the bile you make and you will live a life of desperation and emptiness. You may have fame and cash but once you get it, it will just be your boring norm again soon enough. Then you will still have the mirrors to deal with. remember to keep your eyes from looking into your eyes. It will help. 100 Bentley's is just one more than 99 and not REALLY much at all. [In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make and virtue signalling and hating yourself (Nation/race,etc) is not love. Not creating hate in the first place is the key.]

Get mad at your peers, not the 20 and 30 year olds trying to do something about it.

Great episode, John Oliver!

There is a concrete U.S. legislative proposal to address climate change: the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA; H.R. 763; This bipartisan legislation will charge a fee on carbon-producing fuels at their point of entry into the U.S. economy (when they come out of the ground or through customs). The money collected will be kept separate from other federal assets and will be returned to households through a dividend. (Here is a website with more information: By putting a clear and predictable price on carbon, this legislation will spur the market to research and use carbon-free energy solutions without putting specific regulations on industry.

Furthermore, there is an organization that is almost exclusively focused on advocating for a carbon fee and dividend proposal to be passed by Congress: the Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL; CCL is "a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change." CCL works towards this legislation in a cooperative approach, involving Republicans, Democrats, business leaders, faith groups, economists, scientists, and citizen lobbyists. Economic studies have shown that, with the dividend, carbon fee and dividend generates economic growth and creates more jobs than it destroys. It really is a win-win solution. Here is a collection of "Laser Talks" that explains the economic impacts and a host of related issues:

I just donno if this is gonna be that affective at the moment. If you charge people extra to drive their cars people are going to lose their shit. The whole point is to get people to switch to 0 emission cars. But if there aren't any then no one would switch. When more affordable 0 emission cars are on the market then putting the price on carbon emission will surely make people switch to 0 emission cars.
