On Monday, climate change alarmist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez desperately told her audience that the world is going to end in 12 short years if we don’t address climate change right away. If you know anything about her, you won’t be surprised to learn that she provided absolutely zero evidence to back up this claim.
“Millennials, and Gen z, and all these folks that come after us, are looking up and we’re like ‘the world will end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’,” AOC said at an #MLKNow speech.
Watch her bizarre remarks below:

In order to “save the planet”, Ocasio-Cortez wants to tax Americans up to 70% in order to pay for her “New Green Deal”.
PJ Media reported in their exclusive story just how much this plan would cost:
“According to an eye-popping new report from Power the Future, provided exclusively to PJ Media, the “Green New Deal” proposed by democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) would cost more than the annual gross domestic product (GDP) of every country on Earth, except the United States. It would cost 3,600 times the cost of the border wall, be enough to pay off nearly the entire national debt, meet the needs of all student loan debt 12 times over, and cover the cost of 1,300 aircraft carriers.
The “Green New Deal” will cost a projected $18.26 trillion per year — and that’s a conservative estimate.
According to Investopedia, that is larger than the annual nominal GDP of China (the world’s second-largest economy) and Japan (the world’s third-largest economy) combined. China’s nominal GDP ($12.01 trillion) and Japan’s nominal GDP ($4.87 trillion) add up to $16.88 trillion, more than $1 trillion less than the annual cost of the “Green New Deal.” Only the U.S., with its $19.39 trillion nominal GDP, still manages to produce more wealth than the “Green New Deal” would suck from the economy.”
The “doom and gloom” language she uses sounds awfully similar to the kind of rhetoric that Al Gore likes to push. In 2009, Gore stated that our polar ice caps would be completely ice free by the Summer of 2016. We all know how that turned out:
A 2015 NASA study even further debunked his claim, proving that the Antarctic ice sheet is GAINING far more ice than it’s losing:
A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.
The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.
According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
My question is simple…
How could anyone in their right mind actually believe a word that comes out of the mouths of climate alarmist like this?
