AOC's "Green New Deal" pipe dream

Mike Pesca delivers a nice takedown of AOCís truthiness schtick in the latest episode of his daily Slate podcast The Gist, starting at 19:30:

Note that Pesca (like me) is a center-left Democrat, and he explicitly says he would be cool with Scandinavian style democratic socialist policies, though he doubts they could get past political hurdles in the U.S. But what AOC is talking about here goes far beyond that, and what really alarms me is the Trump-style dismissal of the importance of fact checking. Just dream big, kids!
