U.S. is back with new approach to climate policy -AOC


The congresswoman from New York arrived at the COP26 summit in Glasgow with other U.S. representatives to support American efforts to reclaim leadership at UN climate negotiations after a four-year absence under former President Donald Trump.

When asked by a reporter "A message for the young people, Ma'am?" Ocasio-Cortez said, "I would say, stay in the streets." She then winked.

"We're just here to say that we're not just back. We're different and we're more just," she told a side event at the conference. "And we are more open-minded to questioning prior assumptions of what is politically possible ... And I would argue that it's a fundamentally different approach."

Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic lawmakers said the key to proving lasting U.S. leadership will be the passage of a comprehensive social and climate spending bill called Build Back Better that needs to win support from moderate Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate.
