Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) compared the Green New Deal, put forth Thursday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), to the moon landing and fighting the Nazis during a campaign event in Mason City, Iowa on Friday.

“We have to deal with this…our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold. It’s one of the reasons I signed on to the resolution. I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” Booker said. “There’s a lot of people blowing back on the Green New Deal. They’re going, ‘Oh, it’s impractical, oh it’s too expensive, oh it’s all of this.’ If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the moon.”

“We need to be bold again in America. We need to have dreams that other people say are impossible. We need to push the bounds of human potential,” Booker added.

“When the planet has been in peril in the past, who came forward to save the earth from the scourge of Nazi and totalitarian regimes? We came forward,” Booker said. “Who came forward to save the planet or continents from financial ruin? We came forward with the Marshall Plan.”
