Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed Climate Change for making people her ago “stressed” about having kids while talking to TMZ.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
I mean this is our future. Because I think for us the stakes are so high. I’m going to live in a world that’s fundamentally altered by Climate change. So is Greta. So is every young person…..We’re seeing it now, like we’re living through this right now.
We’re experiencing it right now, but especially if you are under 50 years old. You’re 40, 30, you know the younger you are, the more our lives and our futures are going to be impacted by this and you know, even people my age are stressed and have anxiety about having kids.
AOC once made waves by saying the world could end in 12 years because of Climate change but later explained it was “dry humor and sarcasm,”
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq
