Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Returns to Climate Alarmism with Latest Claim

AOC continuers to make headlines, but is it for the right reasons?

There is a raging debate over the true nature of climate change in the annals of American society, and the polarizing opinions curiously seem to adhere to strict political demographics.

That’s because, unlike the weather, our opinions on climate change can be shaped, molded, and altogether changed by a slick-talking politician or TV-friendly “scientist”.  Then, as predictably as the sun will rise in the morning, some clever entrepreneur will find a way to legislate his way into wealth, much in the way that Al Gore attempted to sell “carbon credits” from his own guilt-easing corporate scheme in the wake of his film An Inconvenient Truth.

So, as the fresh faces on Capitol Hill fall in line with the rest of their respective parties on the subject of Climate Change, they will also interject their own personality into the political proceedings.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the prime example, as evidenced by her latest climate change stunt.

Her comments came during a House Oversight Committee hearing Tuesday with John Kerry, the former Secretary of State, and Chuck Hagel, the former Secretary of Defense, where the subject of the role of global warming and national security was discussed.

Ocasio-Cortez first asked Hagel: “Do you think that neglecting to address these threats is – could contribute to an American – the loss of American life?”

When he responded in the affirmative, she asked: “And do you think that denial or even delaying in that action could cost us American lives?”

When he again replied “yes,” she asked Kerry: “Do you think that appointing a federal panel that questions 26 years of established climate science (could) be responsible for the loss of American life?”

And here is where Ocasio-Cortez’s signature precociousness reared its head.

When Kerry said: “It could be,” she again followed up: “So I think what we have laid out here is a very clear moral problem and in terms of leadership, if we fail to act or even if we delay in acting, we will have blood on our hands? I don’t know if you’re allowed to agree with that Secretary Kerry or Secretary Hagel, but would you agree with that assessment?”

Anything to remain in the headlines, right?

Kerry didn’t flinch, either.

Kerry replied: “As long as we do nothing, congresswoman, we are complicit in our acts of omission and commission of what we’re doing to choose for our energy, etc. And we’re going to contribute to people dying, we’re going to contribute to trillions of dollars of damage to property and we will change the face of life on this planet.”

Is this the final warning bell for the alleged end of the world, or just another attempt by AOC to go viral?  Only time will tell.
