The actual Green New Deal isn’t really that different from the flubbed FAQ page that was taken offline.

Ocasio-Cortez’s flubbed FAQ also referred to getting rid of “farty cows” and airplanes. The phrase “farty cows” doesn’t appear in the resolution’s text, but emissions from ranching is mentioned.
