Theres a method to their madness. First they float a very extreme green strategy. Alarms everyone but the enviro wingnuts. Then, they back off, drop the banning of internal combustion engines (for now) and commercial aircraft. Then, the mushy middle, aka suburban women, think oh, ok theyre not so bad afterall. I can live with that. Will work like a charm. Guarantee it...
Something on the order of being accused of murder with fake evidence and told you are going to get the needle. Then later on you are told to plead guilty and get life. So you jump at life in prison to avoid the death penalty.
May be a weak analogy, but such a plan is the death penalty and backing off from hit for a softer solution does sort of parallel what you said.

I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD I NEARLY CRIED:
WSJS KIMBERLEY STRASSEL CANT GET OVER GREEN NEW DEAL
The Wall Street Journals Kimberley Strassel was not impressed by the rollout of the proposed Green New Deal in fact, she argued that if a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job.
As Democrats rolled out the resolution, the commentary and criticisms rolled out as well. Strassel was firmly and decidedly in the camp of the latter.
"By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful."
Strassel followed her initial tweet with a series of key points to illustrate her initial assessment. The facilities, solar panels, and turbines required to deliver renewable electricity on the scale described in the GND would take up more space than the entire state of California.......500k square km. Also note, govt (taxpayers) will pay for thesenot private sector.
