Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County (RPSLO) Resolution 
                         Rejects the Democrat’s Green New Deal


WHEREAS the Green New Deal proposed by Democrats as a solution to combat global warming/climate change by mandatory elimination of use of all fossil fuels within 10 years and replacing them with alternative energy sources, eg., wind, solar and biomass, and excluding use of nuclear and large hydroelectric power sources;
WHEREAS the Green New Deal would result in mass unemployment or
underemployment of millions of Americans;
WHEREAS the Green New Deal would ban the use of gasoline/diesel-powered vehicles and require elimination of privately owned gas/diesel-powered vehicles/
boats, all such powered recreational vehicles/boats, mechanized agricultural

equipment, ban commercial air travel;


WHEREAS the Green New Deal would result in the de-industrialization of America, destroying the American economy and reducing American standards of living to that of a Third World country;
WHEREAS the Green New Deal’s proposal to cut National Defense by 50% along with elimination of use of fossil fuels would cripple the ability of American Armed Forces to defend the nation, execute foreign policy overseas and poses an existential threat to the survival of the nation in the face of multiple and growing overseas military threats;


WHEREAS the Green New Deal promises vast new social programs without any means of paying for them, adding tens of trillions of dollars to the national debt and would bankrupt the nation and collapse the national economy;

WHEREAS on February 7, 2019 Democrat Congressman Salud Carbajal (CA-24) co-sponsored and voted in support of H. Res. 109, a resolution sponsored by Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal; therefore, be it


RESOLVED,  that the Republican Party of San Luis Obispo County (RPSLO) rejects the Democrat’s Green New Deal as a threat to our Constitutional Republic, is technologically unfeasible, unnecessary, irresponsible and a danger to the common defense, the national economy, social fabric and future survival of the United States as an independent nation.
