A lucrative multi billion dollar industry that a majority of people need or enjoy isn't about to be dismantled due to a young political uber extremist senator.
It won't be dismantled because of AOC and her personal agenda.
However it will be dismantled when enough people are willing to accept that too much of it is a bad thing.
Meanwhile let's have some fun with all your red herrings.
1) "A lucrative multi billion dollar industry"
If that is sufficient reason to maintain a way of business, there are a number of Mexican drug cartels who will gladly employ you as a lobbyist.
2) "that a majority of people need or enjoy"
Oh really? If you add up all the passengers around the world, the airline employees (& sub contractors), airport employees (& sub contractors) and every employee at Airbus & Boeing (& etc etc), are you going to come up with 3½ billion people?
For a start, it will not even come close. Secondly, very few of them actually "need" aviation.
An exception might be a casualty at the side of a road, or half way up a mountain, waiting for an air ambulance.
Aside from those rare cases, who else really needs aviation?
if the money invested in aviation were to go elsewhere, guess what? The jobs would follow the money.
And suddenly you will find people "need" the Green Deal, because it provides employment for many of them.
As for "enjoy" aviation; here's a strange thing. I used to "enjoy" football. Then I broke my leg. Now I enjoy something else.
Life on this planet will not suddenly cease because aircraft stop flying. The human species is remarkably capable of adapting - in most cases.
Obviously Trump supporters are a special sub-set that are unable to manage this, but I guess I can live with that problem.
3).."due to a.."
young (is that a good thing or a bad thing?)
political (er, yes)
uber (did someone buy you a dictionary for Xmas?)
extremist (pot, say hello to kettle)
Let's see what we've actually got left, after editing out the surplus.
An industry that some people think they need as a comfort blanket is hopefully about to be overhauled due to a US senator starting the ball rolling.
There, I fixed it for you.
Nothing to see here; move along please.
