I'm sure it'll be similar to the embrace young Republicans have given the LGBT community, in which they went from "I farking hate you" to "I don't give a fark about you".

I believe it's called "Libertarianism".

"Myles, a junior studying political science and economics, has joined the American Conservation Coalition, which last month unveiled its American Climate Contract, a self-described response to the Green New Deal for the political right."

Reminder:

The Individual Mandate was the GOP's response to "Hillarycare", until Democrat's actually adopted and they immediately turned on it. The only purpose it had was to pretend the GOP had a plan for addressing they issue, albeit one they had no intention of actually putting into action.

Cap and Trade was the GOP's response to environmental legislation, unto the Obama admin tried to implement it, then it became "SOCIALISMS".

This is almost certainly the same. They need to look like they have a plan, so they make some shiat up and jam it full of freedumb buzzwords so they can pretend they have an alternative to te Green New Deal, with no intent of ever implementing even their watered down "conservative" plan.

Over and over and over they've shown themselves to be disingenuous bad faith actors. Every time.

Our political system is all about providing multiple options," Myles said.

I am pretty sure this is not our political system.

I used to watch cartoon fiction and find the villains unbelievable because their motive was always "I'm going to destroy the earth muahahaha!" And that was the whole motive.

And now, it turns out, there really are people like that. Entirely motivated by no reason whatsoever, just as long as others suffer.

Classic Fark independentTM.  Doesn't like Democratic plans, but provides zero alternatives.  Claims to dislike Republican politicians and be a libertarian, but votes Republican.

Fark off.

We've been doing a very slow response to climate change already. It's working out great!
