"So people are like 'oh it's unrealistic, oh it's vague, oh it doesn't address this little, minute thing.' And I'm like you try, you do it". A report from the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel found that devastation from climate change could be seen as early as 2030.
When the students told her she has to listen to them because they voted for them, Feinstein challenged one student on her age until she admitted she was 16.
A group of Bay Area kids said Saturday they're "disappointed" with Sen. "I don't respond to that", Feinstein continued.
"Unfortunately, it was a brief meeting, but I want to the children to know they were heard loud and clear", Feinstein wrote.
"This morning I spoke with a small group of children, young adults and parents from the Sunrise Movement, who were delivering a letter in support of the Green New Deal resolution".

"And then you can do it your way".
"(She) will do an internship here", Feinstein tells a staff member, after asking for the woman's name. "I have been and remain committed to doing everything I can to enact real, meaningful climate change legislation".
The freshman NY lawmaker also took a shot at California Democratic Sen.
Bloomberg reports that Ocasio-Cortez's far-left plan would "tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum, which is run by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the non-partisan CBO from 2003 to 2005".
