Oops, Video Catches AOC Spreading Climate Change Lies [Watch]
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn't the most reliable source on political, economic, or environmental issues but that doesn't stop the left from eating up her garbage and calling it facts. This time, there is no way denying that the misinformation she's spreading is just a plain lie.
While visiting what she calls a fracking location in Colorado, AOC shows footage from a full spectrum camera showing "plooms' of invisible gas. She claims that these are dangerous gases being released from fracking.
However, oil and gas experts who spoke to the Daily Caller News Foundation confirmed that the images caught on Ocasio-Cortez’s infrared camera were just heat signatures, not toxic emissions. In fact, they also noted that no fracking is even taking place at this particular site.
“Statements regarding an infrared (FLIR) video tweeted by Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez yesterday evening are categorically false. In the short video, the congresswoman claimed to see ‘toxic emissions’ through a camera and stated that the air was being ‘poisoned’ by oil and gas development. In reality, the operations she was viewing have been lauded as among the best anywhere in the United States for their management practices and facility designs that protect air quality, public health and the environment,” Brian Cain, a spokesman for Extraction Oil & Gas, said to the DCNF on Monday.
“Using an infrared camera, the Congresswoman claimed to see ‘invisible emissions,’ when she was actually witnessing a heat signature caused by high-temperature (200-plus degrees) synthetic drilling mud being circulated to the surface against cooler fall temperatures in Broomfield,” Cain continued. “In fact, the camera angle used in the video viewed an area of our site that does not even include a possible source for the types of emissions being claimed.”
I’m in Colorado w/ @JoeNeguse visiting communities whose air is being poisoned by fracking.
What we’re seeing is appalling. Companies are building fracking sites on public lands, across the street from schools + homes.
Their toxic emissions are invisible. This camera sees them. pic.twitter.com/Kem0MT1lMj

So, it's a case of AOC still not knowing what the heck she's talking about but spreading misinformation that conveniently fit her agenda. Who could have guessed?
