Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has shown her true colors.
Not only has she called for a socialist transformation of America through her so-called “Green New Deal,” she’s also proven to be a deeply dishonest politician.
And now Ocasio-Cortez just got busted on her global warming lie by the last person she ever expected.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most visible member of the far-Left freshman congresswomen known as “The Squad,” has been a gaffe queen.
She’s shown stunning ignorance on a host of topics, but she’s largely been defended by the liberal media.
Ocasio-Cortez has also been caught in several lies, including potential malfeasance involving campaign finance law violations.
One of her biggest lies is her push of climate change hysteria.
But one expert just smacked down Ocasio-Cortez’s arguments in one definitive statement.
Michael Shellenberger, President of Environmental Progress, testified before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology on the issue of climate change.
In the most recent election cycle, Shellenberger ran for governor of California as a Democrat, so he can’t be hit with Leftists’ dismissive smear of being “right-wing.”
Shellenberger has also contributed to The New York Times, the Washington Post, and Forbes.
During his cutting testimony, Shellenberger said:
“No credible scientific body has claimed climate change threatens the collapse of civilization much less the extinction of the human species. And yet some activists, scientists, and journalists make such apocalyptic assertions, which I believe contribute to rising levels of anxiety, including among adolescents, and worsening political polarization.”
Shellenberger didn’t mention names, but he was very clearly speaking about Ocasio-Cortez and climate hysteria mascot Greta Thunberg.
Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” was nothing more than a socialist fever dream where all industry is publicly controlled and climate change was supposed to be the fear that scared everyone into giving away their rights.
Shellenberger is a proponent of nuclear energy, which is clean and efficient, but Leftists hate it.
The reason why is because the goal is government control, not carbon emissions reduction.
If they truly believed the “12 years until it’s too late” fearmongering, they would embrace nuclear energy at least in the short term, but they don’t.
The scam has been revealed.
Even Ocasio-Cortez’s former Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted to a reporter that the “Green New Deal” was less about climate change and more about an economic takeover.
The climate fearmongers should no longer be taken seriously.
Is Ocasio-Cortez’s hysteria over the climate losing steam?
