The previous day, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Biden had reiterated that, but said any approach needed to be "rational" and cost-effective. "We need a political revolution", Sanders said at the "Road to the Green New Deal Tour" rally at Howard University.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a rebuke on Monday to longtime members of Congress and presidential candidates who claim incremental measures will solve the climate crisis and vowed not to allow Republicans or centrist Democrats to hamstring the push for a Green New Deal.

The rally took place just hours after Biden appeared at campaign event in New Hampshire, where he called for a "green revolution" and emphasized that he had introduced legislation addressing climate change while a USA senator from DE in the 1980s - before Ocasio-Cortez was born.

"I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try and come back today and say we need a middle-of-the-road approach to save our lives", Ocasio-Cortez said at a climate change event on Monday.
