AOC is quite demanding and I would like to know if she will benefit in any way to climate change policies via lobbying, etc.

Head poppin’ questions for the warmunists:

1. Define the “correct” temperature range for the planet.

2. Define the “correct” humidity range for the planet.

3. Define the “correct” mean sea level for the planet.

4. Define the “correct” amount of precipitation for the planet.

5. Define the “correct” makeup of the atmosphere.

6. Define the “correct” amount of sea ice at the N/S poles.

7. Define/explain past glaciation and subsequent warming without any input from humans.

“Ocasio-Cortez said in a press call announcing her new House resolution. “It’s 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.”

Oh..OK..in the meantime take off you shirt and go fix me a sandwich.

Ocasio-Cortez indicates support for targeting energy companies with liability lawsuits

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are among a trio of lawmakers Opens a New Window. that will introduce a resolution declaring a climate emergency on Tuesday, and one way Democrats may seek to initiate change is by suing energy companies.

While discussing what actions could be taken to rein in the fossil fuel industry, Ocasio-Cortez called climate liability lawsuits – which are brought against energy companies for climate-related problems – a “fascinating tool” during a press call with reporters.

Ocasio-Cortez remained largely mum on other actionable steps that could be taken, instead adding that there are a lot “of exciting avenues,” including exploring the option of public banks as an alternative to Wall Street, in what would seem to be an effort to reduce contributions to the fossil fuel industry.

Sanders added that what actions are specifically taken will be an ongoing discussion.

This is what she said (from Vox):

calls for “a national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization of the resources and labor of the United States at a massive-scale to halt, reverse, mitigate, and prepare for the consequences of the climate emergency and to restore the climate for future generations.”

If Stalin had been insane....

Lets just deem it a done deal. After all, freakin’ Obamacare was deemed passed so why not “climate change”? I mean, that’s how our government is supposed to work, right?

Head bang

If they actually believed in “Climate Change” it would have been the only topic at the debates. Everything else would be irrelevant.

Suppose there was a ten mile wide asteroid heading for Earth. Would anybody answer questions in Spanish? Would anybody talk about ANYTHING else? No. Yet, was there anything said about Climate Change?

The deliberate falsification of an misreporting of climate related data is what should be declared an emergency since 95% or more of those lies were funded with Federal tax dollars.

Not to mention the fact that to get such fabrications and lies widely published and publicized by both the "scientific" and media cabals is a real, actual, provable, conspiracy to steal hundreds of billions of dollars from the the Federal government.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday to demand that Congress declare climate change a national emergency.

And then what?!

All members of congress will now take Amtrak or Greyhound back to their home districts.

Yes! I want to see Nancy Pelosi riding a Greyhound back to California.

AO-C has an inflated view of her own self-importance.

More talk of concentration camps, global warming emergencies and her ridiculous green new deal, has left many Americans leary of her democRATic Socialist plans.

She's moved an already radical Left stance even further Left to the point of being fantasy, pixie dust and unicorns.

Fact is, she is a freshman congressman who might not even get re-elected because she's abandoned her Bronx constituents. She's only polling 13% there.
