Devout socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) states that the world will stop spinning in a dozen years if “climate change” is left unchecked. Ocasio-Cortez is pressing a new strategy in Congress she calls her “Green New Offer” to face environment matters.
” I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that follow us are looking up and we resemble, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t resolve environment modification,’ and your biggest issue is– your most significant problem is, ‘How are we going to spend for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II.”

However Ocasio-Cortez’s push for the idea that there is a crisis when it comes to the environment smacks of former Vice President Al Gore from back in 1992:
