Ocasio-Cortez Backtracks On Earlier Statement About Global Warming
It seems that the Democratic Darling is now trying to back off of a statement she made about Global Warming.
She had previously stated that we only have 12 years to fix global climate change.
"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."

This is what we've been trying to convey all along...Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez DOES in fact have the social intelligence of a sea sponge!
But in all honesty, does she seem like she was joking or does she seem like she was being serious?
According to the Washington Free Beacon,
Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) released the Green New Deal, a 14-page economic stimulus resolution that aims to fight income inequality and climate change, back in February. While it has previously been estimated by the American Action Forum to cost up to $94.4 trillion, Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats, including several 2020 presidential candidates, have voiced their support for the Green New Deal.
Over the course of the last few months, Ocasio-Cortez has insisted that members off Congress and Americans need to act swiftly in combating climate change. Back in January, Ocasio-Cortez participated in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, where she issued a warning about fighting climate change.
"Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?" Ocasio-Cortez said. "This is the war — this is our World War II."
After she initially made the claim about the world ending in 12 years, she pushed back against Republicans on Twitter by saying it wasn't a gaffe, but a "generational difference."
To put the nail in the coffin for this matter, let's look at what she said during an Instagram live:
"We have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50 percent if not more," Ocasio-Cortez said. "For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but you're grandkids will not, so understand that the internet documents everything."
How ironic is it that she sais that the internet documents everything and now it's being used against her.
Your own words condemn you AOC. There's no backing your way out of this one.
