Founded in 2017, the group organizes young people to fight climate change and support the Green New Deal. It's not just a cute stunt, in many cases, these kiddos are getting serious results.

The children were with the Sunrise Movement, a climate advocacy organization, and approached Feinstein in hopes she would support the Green New Deal, an ambitious proposal from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that includes an overhaul of US energy that seeks to stall the effects of climate change.

In an interview with Reshma Saujani of "Girls Who Code", Ocasio-Cortez spoke of the doubters she had when she took on Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in her stunning Democratic primary upset a year ago and how she dismisses skeptics now.

Activists from the Sunrise Movement, a youth climate-change advocacy group, posted video on social media of the confrontation, where Feinstein said "I've been doing this for 30 years, I know what I'm doing".

'I would have remembered, ' one resident of 40 years told the Post, saying he'd never seen Ocasio-Cortez or her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, who also lists his residence in the unit. Feinstein said. "I've been doing this for 30 years".

Whether you're on the side of the kids or the grandma (not an insult, Feinstein reports she has seven grandchildren), one lesson here is that telling a bunch of kids that you won your race by "a million vote plurality" isn't the best way to endear yourself to an increasingly rambunctious climate movement. "You come in here and say, 'It has to be my way or the highway.' I don't respond to that". I know what I'm doing. "I don't respond to that".

"I still live in my hood,"Ocasio-Cortez said, pointing to how a "white nationalist" Coast Guardsman had just been recently arrested for wanting to carry out terrorist attacks, including killing high-profile Democrats".

"People are like, oh it's unrealistic, oh it's vague, oh it doesn't address this little minute thing".

KSA: Saudi Arabia strikes $10 bln China deal
While he was in the RSAF, Prince Khalid trained extensively with the USA military both in the United States and in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia also said it was working to add Chinese to the curriculum in Saudi schools and universities.

"That resolution will not pass the Senate, and you can take that back to whoever sent you here", she says, citing that the deal doesn't have a single Republican in favor of the proposal and "the key to good legislation is to tailor something that you write so that it can pass, and you can get a step ahead".

When a teen tells Feinstein that she should listen to them, because they are her voters, Feinstein responds by asking the girl how old she is.

Like what you see?

This is a fight for our generation's survival.

On Friday, the Sunrise Movement posted a video of Sen. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress.

The two videos have given rise to many interpretations of Feinstein's interaction with the children.

She continued: "We had a spirited discussion and I presented the group with my draft resolution that provides specific responses to the climate change crisis, which I plan to introduce soon".
