WASHINGTON - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday to demand that Congress declare climate change a national emergency.
This is a political crisis of inaction, Ocasio-Cortez said in a press call announcing her new House resolution. Its going to take political will (and) political courage in order for us to treat this issue with the urgency that the next generation needs in order for us to preserve our way of life and in order for us to preserve our planet as much as we possibly can.
The freshman rep said the House resolution - and companion one that presidential candidate Sanders will introduce in the Senate - is the first step to enacting sweeping reforms to slash greenhouse gas emissions.
We have less than 12 years, Ocasio-Cortez said of the time left to fully enact a global solution.
The largely symbolic resolution would state that global warming caused by humans has created a climate emergency that urgently impacts the health, safety and security of the United States, according to a draft.

After Congress does that, maybe it can declare a UFO invasion or witchcraft a national emergency too.
Where’s the emergency? Okay, 11 or so years left according to AOC but what else? The Arctic was not ice free in 2015 has Prophet Gore warned and nowhere around the world is there any rising sea levels.
I agree, start with shutting down all AC in government buildings. Ban fridges in offices and break rooms. All members of congress will now take Amtrak or Greyhound back to their home districts. People will bring bag lunches to work and cafeterias will be shut down.
Is there a CRISIS?
Where is it?
Sure, call it “The Dingbat Act”.
I really despise these idiots.
The more taxpayer praying leftists they are, the more they cream about globull warming. Seems to be a direct correlation.
The sky is falling The sky is falling The sky is falling
I like the climate on this planet. It’s really nice!
The crisis is Cortez wants control and Moctrzuma isn’t ready .
That should be a website with a real countdown clock. :)
The Lear jet leftists expect to form the core of the global Inner Party. There they will continue to enjoy the finest foods and most advanced gadgets the world has to offer while deciding your fate for you.
If you work very hard and show them your unwavering loyalty you may be permitted to join the global Outer Party. You will be allowed occasional servings of meat and air conditioning on a rationed basis.
The rest of us will eat insects and swelter for the good of the planet.
Trump should require Democrats to pay a Democrat Party Carbon Tax for allowing 3rd world populations to change our climate with overcrowding.
Rained here this morning. But we averted a crisis.
She is profoundly mentally disturbed. A trained clinician would quickly zero-in on her grandiose self image, delusional world view, and infantile reasoning skills.
Maybe they can limit how much sunlight the US receives.
How much money are these Climate Terrorists getting Paid by George SoreA$$, to lie about Gorebull warming?
You don't capitulate to young voters because they have been brainwashed into believing that mankind is driving a climate 'crisis,' said Marc Morano. You lead and reveal to them that what they think they know just ain't so.
Thanks to Hot Hunt and others for the above realities versus the end of humans due to Gorebull Warming BS Predictions!
