Meteorologist Ryan Maue recently called out Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over a social media post regarding climate change.
Noting that he originally thought the post was a parody, Maue refuted AOC’s suggestion that thunderstorms offered “proof of any ‘climate crisis,'” noting, “It’s just the weather in DC.”
Maue went on to explain that Ocasio-Cortez “does not know the difference between weather and climate,” and attempted to clarify.
I thought this was fake but it’s from @AOC Instagram story.
No idea what she means with “casual tornadoes” and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any “climate crisis”.
It’s just the weather in D.C. 🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/r015cScVZg

The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate.
Let’s try an easy analogy:
Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door.
Climate is your closet wardrobe. pic.twitter.com/mmdLr6F2mD

Social media commenters thanked Maue for his efforts, but did not have much faith in AOC’s ability to process the information.
Thank you Ryan Maue!

How can AOC know the difference her degree in arts and crafts doesn’t cover this subject.

Carl Sagan warned about it: “…this combustible mixture of ignorance and power sooner or later is going to blow up in our faces. I mean, who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it.”
