The media’s favorite new member of Congress is already pushing a far left agenda on climate change. And like so many other Democrats, she is framing the issue as a matter of life and death.
The Daily Caller reports:
ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SAYS ‘PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE’ IF CLIMATE CHANGE ISN’T ADDRESSED
Democratic Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used social media on Friday to call for the issue of climate change to be addressed “ASAP,” or “people are going to die.”
“People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “It’s not enough to think it’s ‘important.’ We must make it urgent. That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy.”

Ocasio-Cortez linked to a CNN article about a just-released federal climate change report that “warns of devastating health and economic costs to the US.”
While President Trump has acknowledged that the earth’s temperature may be changing, he has questioned man’s role in it, particularly whether or not the United States could make a significant impact by curbing economic activity.
She will continue to push for the far left and the media will treat her with kid gloves. Just watch.
