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".

"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.

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.
