Ocasio Cortez: "World is going to end in 12 yrs if we don't address climate change"

Fish becoming extinct in 2048? Shoot, we've got a bigger crisis on our hands. We better harvest those fish while we still have time.

Well, we had a good run.

I think if we look deeper into this we find out that.......the Browns will make their first super bowl in 12 years only to have the world to end between the AFC CHamp game and the SB>


SHe may be cute, but that is about all she has going for her.

12 years? That would be just after her Presidency. I would have picked a different made up time frame.

It's climate science now?

So science has proved the earth's fluctuation of temperatures are from man.
Wait...man didn't exist during the ice age or when it thawed.

Please define climate science. I always have to wonder about the validity of some of the statements that the temperature is expected to be higher or lower than the norm for that day, week, month or year. Each day has a new temperature. It seems to me you would add that to the accumulated temps and drop the earliest Then you world have the new norm for the time period being talked about.

Well, then, we'll at least avoid the zombie apocalypse which I believe is scheduled to occur in 2040's.

Trump should cut a deal with this crazy. Agree to throw a couple solar panels on top of the wall and she'll flip on Pelosi faster than you can say cryin chuck.

Of course climate changes. It has done so since the earth was created.
Man and the industrial age has been around for such a short time.

We are always making strides to improve the environment and that should continue, but these chicken little folks are just taking it way too far.

I think this is a case of "Internet telephone", exacerbated by poor speaking on her part.

My guess is that she was referring to the UN report, which basically asserts that we have approximately 12 years to make serious changes to our activities before reaching a "point of no return" that would have devastating consequences to us in the coming decades (a somewhat different assertion than "humanity has 12 years left") :

https://amp.theguardian.com/environm...mark-un-report

As noted in previous threads, love her or hate her, AOC is decidedly a clumsy speaker at times. She didn't reference it well, and then it was filtered through a clickbait-y headline, and here you have people saying "zOMG, she thinks the world is literally going to end in 12 years". Yes, periodic lousy articulation is one of her biggest weaknesses, and she definitely needs to work on that, but I don't think she actually thinks that we're all going to be dead in 2031.

This is like the 5th time you've tried to make a point of this. You're not "just curious". Cut the act.

To answer the question: my position has never changed; climate change is real, humans are playing a big part in it, and alarmists harm the science.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: A system that allows billionaires to exist.......

Of course she's a loon:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: A system that allows billionaires to exist alongside extreme poverty is immoral

"The idea that an American should aspire to "'be a billionaire and own more than millions of families combined' is not an aspirational or good thing," she said."

Maybe its just me, but this sounds a lot like the "Trumpsters" trying to defend his bits of "misinformation".

I'm not contesting that she garbled her own talking point, but I also think that there's a huge difference between an eye-rolling garbling of a talking point and the outright intentional lying that our traitor of a "President" does on the regular.

We all understood the context including Dotards, relax. She is extremely progressive / socialist leaning so an easy and FUN target of the right - just get used to it it's all good. Plus it's a nice break from the Steve Kings of the world polluting their side.
