Watch: Scientist Calls Out AOC For Bogus 'Green New Deal' And Dangerous Lies
Top Democrats keep warning that if we don't give them full financial control that the world is going to end in 12 years. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the face of that claim but how does it stack up against the facts? Scientists say, not so well.
"The world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we going to pay for it?" Ocasio-Cortez boldly stated during an interview.
Daniel Turner, executive director of 'Power the Future' said the scientist who wrote the report on climate change disagree. "That is a made up statistic that you all have extrapolated", he added. He then clarified that the report suggests we want to work on climate change within the next 12 years - not that the world will end.
Simply put, Democrats claims that we need to pour heaps of money into climate change efforts or we will die is just a ploy to get into taxpayers' wallets.
This wasn't the only bogus claim that Ocasio-Cortez was made to walk-back. AOC was also forced to break her promise that those who are 'unwilling to work' would still receive security:
The FAQ and background materials from Ocasio-Cortez's website stated that the Green New Deal will provide "Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work," and the FAQ sent to NPR also noted, "We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast."
Ocasio-Cortez's office removed the documents from her website amid an online backlash. A version of the FAQ that referred to "farting cows" is still available on NPR's website, and a similar version that was posted to Ocasio-Cortez's website is currently viewable on an Internet archiving service. Both versions of the documents describe providing economic security for those "unwilling to work," and state, "This is a massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline" at a "scale not seen since World War 2."
The point is that Ocasio-Cortez claims and promises out the wazoo without facts or basic understanding of global and economic interworkings. The former coffee barista should stick to what she knows because fear-mongering her way into the American people's wallet isn't working.
