The children pleaded with the senator to sign the Green New Deal resolution championed by freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, telling Feinstein that they had heard from "scientists" that the earth only has 12 years before cataclysm.
The environmental activist group, Sunrise Movement, released the video of the confrontation and tweeted that the California senator treated the group of about 15 young people with "smugness" and "disrespect". "You come in here and you say, 'It has to be my way or the highway.' I don't respond to that". "I know what I'm doing", a defensive Feinstein said to the children.
"Senator, if this doesn't get turned around in 10 years, you're looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with these consequences", said a woman escorting the kids.
The children wrote a letter to Feinstein on a poster board decorated with hard-drawn animals and flowers, asking that she support the Green New Deal. "I have been and remain committed to doing everything I can to enact real, meaningful climate change legislation". "And then you can do it your way".
"Well, you know better than I do, so I think one day you should run for the Senate", fired back Feinstein. While some wrote that a shortened version of the video made Feinstein's conduct look worse than she had actually behaved, others said that the full version of the video was just as damning. After the teen said she was 16 and couldn't yet vote, Feinstein deadpanned, "Well, you didn't vote for me".
ACTIVIST: I hear what you're saying, but we're the people who voted you.
A younger girl retorted that it doesn't matter because "we're gonna be the ones who are impacted", and Feinstein said she understood as she has seven grandchildren.
O'Hanlon told HuffPost in an email that the children were "upset and disappointed" by Feinstein's attitude toward them. "And you can take that back to whoever sent you here".
The conversation at times grew heated, especially when Feinstein dismissed the group's request due to their tone and their youth. "I always welcome the opportunity to hear from Californians who feel passionately about this issue and it remains a top priority of mine".
Republicans have attacked the Green New Deal, asserting it reeks of socialism, as The Post's Salvador Rizzonotes.
The 15-minute video of the impromptu Friday meeting captures the students and Feinstein debating the merits of the Green New Deal, an ambitious Democrat plan to shift the US economy from fossil fuels to renewable sources such as wind and solar power.
