L.A. Mayor Ignores Homelessness, Goes “Green” With Enhanced New Deal

The policies and costs implemented in this redistribution scheme, many people argue, will only make the wretched poverty worse, and increase the wealth gap between the ultra-rich and ultra-poor worse.

Los Angeles’ homeless situation is terrible. Medieval diseases, the worst sort of defecation and filth, and literal tent camps lines the streets. But, rather than address the liberal policies that fomented the situation, increasing the gap between the extreme rich and extreme poor, the L.A. Mayor has decided that the most important problem he should address is debatable ‘climate change.’

On Monday, Eric Garcetti signed an executive directive designed to boost the city’s “Green New Deal.”

So, Garcetti’s solution to the real problem of his city… is to establish more policy that will impoverish the majority of citizens, reduce access to electricity, and potentially escalate homelessness. In fact, many people argue that the economic impact it will have will destroy all but the wealthiest who live in L.A.

Fox News reported:

In signing the executive directive – Garcetti’s 25th since taking office – the 49-year-old mayor insisted the “stakes could not be higher.”

“We must act this decade to save the planet and create a more equitable prosperous and healthy future for our children and grandchildren,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The plan, unveiled in April of last year, sets ambitious goals for Los Angeles to become more sustainable by the 2030s.

“There is literally no time to waste because what we do in the next 10 years will determine the health of our planet and whether there’s a job, a paycheck and a place for everyone in our country,” Garcetti said Monday.

Among the proposals is a major infrastructure project to make public transportation more widely available and an initiative to promote more walking and bicycling.

The plan was originally pitched as LA’s version of the Green New Deal, an economic stimulus concept designed to tackle, among other things, climate change. The Green New Deal has been championed by progressive lawmakers, most notably, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-N.Y.

A longtime advocate of raising environmental awareness, Garcetti chaired last year’s C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen. The annual meeting brings together mayors from major cities around the world to discuss sustainable action on climate change.
