ST. LOUIS, MO (KFTK) - The outlandish Green New Deal is drawing criticism from all sides of the aisle.

In a series of tweets, Patrick Moore, the co-founder of the environmentalist group Greenpeace, tore into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her proposal to eliminate fossil fuels completely. 

“Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death,” Moore tweeted to Ocasio-Cortez.

But Moore didn't stop there.

Moore left Greenpeace after 15 years and has been an outspoken critic of the group.
