New York Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bizarrely claimed on Wednesday that global warming is killing Americans and that the United States government is allowing it.
As noted by The Daily Wire, she provided no evidence to support her erroneous claim, but she did call for a “New Green Deal,” which is likely just another socialist redistribution package to give away “free stuff” while taxpayers are stuck footing the bill.
But more importantly, her comments are alarming for several reasons, primarily given that a likely soon-to-be member of Congress would claim the U.S. government is culpable for intentionally killing people. That’s quite a claim, yet scientific evidence proves she is out of her mind.
“Americans are dying because of a government too coward to save the planet,” she wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. “It’s wrong.
And we will need a Green New Deal to survive.”
Our children’s lives are on the line.
Not a single elected official, Democrat OR Republican, should accept money from fossil fuel corporations.
Americans are dying because of a government too coward to save the planet.
And we will need a Green New Deal to survive. https://t.co/Fh7X0EjFIZ

Unsurprising to many, the 28-year-old former bartender turned Democratic Party leader didn’t offer any evidence to support her claims, which has been easily debunked by studies.
For instance, Heritage Foundation senior fellow Stephen Moore published a study earlier this week showing that the U.S. is leading the world in reducing carbon emissions.
While Ocasio-Cortez is too busy spreading false information that the U.S. government is willfully allowing global warming to kill people, actual studies show that the U.S. leads the world in taking action to reduce CO2 emissions, which environmentalists claim causes global warming.
Last Thursday, she was excoriated online for accusing Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro of being sexist and “catcalling” her when he offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign or a charity if she debated him.
Prior to that, she claimed the Democratic Party deserves credit for the 1969 lunar landing. At that time, President Richard Nixon was in office, and he was a Republican.
Before that, she randomly argued that her “Medicare For All” idea — which studies show will cost $218 trillion over 30 years — would be a great idea of America.
She also claimed in the same interview with CNN that America does not have an “upper middle class,” a statement that even liberal networks have noted is not true.
Last month, she claimed to be a “girl from the Bronx,” but was exposed for growing up in a wealthy New York City suburb.
In June, she claimed Israel is illegally occupying land that belongs to Palestine. When pressed on her claim, she literally admitted that she had no idea what she was talking about.
In a previous interview, she stuttered herself into embarrassment on ABC’s “The View” when asked to explain the difference between socialism and being a Democrat. She had nothing.
Her inability to answer basic questions about policy warrants scrutiny, as the ideas she wants to implement would literally bankrupt America over time. She shouldn’t make so many embarrassing comments if she doesn’t want to be criticized.
