Ocasio: Melting Glaciers Could Release Ancient Diseases Unless We Spend $93 Trillion



It’s is hard for me to believe that Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) graduated cum laude in 2011 from Boston University College of Arts and Sciences with a Bachelor of Arts degree in international relations and economics. It actually boggles my mind and really makes me doubt that institute of higher learning. It would now seem she is also a highly qualified climatologist and, apparently, a skilled epidemiologist, too. At least according to her.

The intrepid leader of “The Squad” is still proclaiming that there are only 12 years left before climate change destroys the planet. She says we simply must spend the $93 trillion her Green New Deal calls for or we are all going to die… we are doomed. She says that climate change will lead to melting glaciers, which could release ancient diseases infecting the world’s population.

“There are a lot of diseases that are frozen in some of these glaciers, um, that scientists fear that there is a potential that a lot of diseases could, um, escape these melted glaciers, things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that they’re going to get into our water,” she said during a live video session on Instagram.

She added “that humans could contract them, and they are going to be diseases that are thousands of years old that have vectors that we are not prepared for, that we have never seen. And, um, so that’s a concern.”

This woman is fruit loops and dumb as a box of rocks.

From The Daily Wire:

“Oh, and AOC is also an entomologist.

“Um, even if there are no diseases frozen at all in these glaciers, you have diseases that are spread by mosquitoes, and now mosquitoes are starting to fly further north that carry diseases like malaria, and, um, a whole slew of other things,” she said.

“And, uh, and there are, you know, parts of the United States and things are moving much farther north that we’re going to have to contend with, diseases that we haven’t had to contend with in parts of the world before. Um, so there’s disease,” she said.

“AOC said she’s losing sleep over climate change. “Even while I was on vacation I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning just concerned about climate change,” she said. “I’m 29 years old, I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policymaker, and potentially have a family in the time of climate change.”

“But she said Americans are just going to have to pony up that $93 trillion or the whole world will be lost.

“We need to start getting comfortable with how extreme the problem is,” she said, “because only until we accept, frankly, how, um, bad climate change is and how bad it can be for our children’s lives, um, are we going to be comfortable pursuing really big solutions.”

“We need to bite the bullet on the cost,” said the climatologist/epidemiologist/entomologist/financier, “because the alternative to not spending the money is (A) death and (B) spending even more money.”

“People may not like it and they may say ‘Oh my God’ and ‘blah blah blah,’ like, we’re not trying to end cows and plane travel, but we need to change our lives. All of it. Our whole lives.”‘

What we need is for this woman to just shut up and go away.

And on she goes:

“And by the way, sea-level rise is probably one of the most expensive parts about climate change,” she said. “You think overhauling our economy to decarbonize and saving the planet is going to be expensive? Try not decarbonizing our economy and allowing sea level to rise, every coastal city to go underwater, every Midwestern city or large swaths in the middle of the country experiencing drought on level that we have not seen, that’s going to be way more expensive.”

Careful honey… your devotion to Al Gore’s nuttiness is showing. I can’t believe Ocasio-Cortez was elected and that people actually listen to her drivel. She’s a socialist chicken little… count me out.

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials




* By

It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.

Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!

Via The Daily Wire:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.

“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”

“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.

The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:

“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”

Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
