Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez partnered with The Intercept to release a truly bizarre “video from the future” in which Ocasio-Cortez discussed how the United States came to accept the necessity of the Green New Deal and saved the planet from certain doom.
The video, titled “Art of the Green New Deal: A Message From the Future With AOC”, features Ocasio-Cortez narrating an artistic rendition of the United States. It begins with Ocasio-Cortez bragging about being part of the “most diverse” Congress in the history of the country, and goes on to explain the horrible danger the world found itself in when she was elected.
“We knew that we needed to save the planet, and taht we had all the technology to do it,” narrated Ocasio-Cortez. “But people were scared.”
She went on to place the blame for climate change on corporations and politicians who, in spite of what Ocasio-Cortez says is the obvious scientific understanding that climate change will destroy the world, “kept digging and mining, drilling, and racking like there was no tomorrow.”
“Entire species will never get back, natural wonders gone forever,” Ocasio-Cortez lamented.
She went on to again reference the absurd idea that the world has only 12 years left to address climate change by cutting carbon emissions in half.
“The leading climate scientists declared another emergency,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “They told us we had 12 years left to cut our emissions in half, or hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”
“12 years to change everything.”
The video then went on to fantasize about the “decade of the Green New Deal,” in which everyone magically started to agree with Ocasio-Cortez, and saved the planet from certain doom.
According to Ocasio-Cortez’s “message from the future,” she went on to inspire more diverse individuals to run for Congress, and ultimately saved the world, like some sort of Captain Planet superhero cartoon. more here
