Except no trends indicate that people are fighting climate change as private citizens on a mass scale..

How many scientists say something needs to be done right now to change the future?

@ 1.6% of them, if data is accurate.

the 97% scientist thing is an internet myth.

It's not about what politician knows more. It's that Trump refuses to even consider climate change as real. While AOC is trying to do something about it.

I don't go by my local weather. I go by what a majority of scientists say.

News flash.

Climate change is real.

It's been in a constant state of motion for eons.

Mankind has always adapted to it.

How does spending money on 'liberal' dream projects by looting us all solve a so called problem.

When Cortez, and her party don't control THE ENTIRE WORLD?

97% did not say it's an internet myth. 64 took a strong position and the others? Who knows what position they had. It doesn't say.

In any case, the environment is being polluted wether you believe in global warming or not. At least AOC is not like Trump and willing to go back to the 1900's era of mass corporate pollution.

It’s an internet myth that 97% believe in man made climate change.

So why complain about GND and AOC? She's just a young little girl and you guys give her too much credit and power. It's as if you guys are terrified of her.

She's also a US Representative for the state of New York. She literally votes on the laws of our nation. No, I will not give her a pass. I have certain expectations for those in the upper level of our government that are not age-dependent.

I am also "terrified" of no one. I disagree with her proposals and (lack of) reasoning because I see them as potentially disastrous and devoid of any concept of reality:
  • She wants to outlaw "fossil fuels." I live 10 miles from the nearest store. What am I supposed to do for supplies, get a horse and wagon?
  • Get rid of airplanes and use rails instead. Right. As I mentioned, California can't seem to build a high-speed railway from LA to San Fran. How are we supposed to build that high-speed railway to Australia? I get a lot of components for my research work from China (because that's where they are made) and it's not going to be conducive to any sort of technological advancements if that supply is cut off (although it would fix the tariff issue).
  • Use only renewable energy. OK, great idea when it becomes possible. This is my area of expertise, and I am telling you it is simply not possible right now. Soon I hope, but not yet.
  • Get rid of cows? Leave my hamburgers be, dammit!
  • Upgrade all buildings? My Daddy built this house with his own hands. No one... I repeat, NO ONE... is going to "upgrade or replace" it while I breathe. That's just the way it is. Joke all you want.

The problem is that, like most of these "enlightened" politicians... heck, like most of the human race IMO... AOC has no earthly idea what things are like outside of her bubble. She has this mental image that everyone lives the same life, or at least that they want to. I don't. I've been to New York City, many times. It's right purty if one can look beyond the filth that every city has. It's kinda exciting with people moving and shaking all hours of the day and night. But it's not what I like. I prefer peace and serenity, clean air and water from a well, room to walk around without being jostled by others, the morning stream of sunlight through the windows warming up the place after a chilly night, a sky full of stars, watching critters scurry around in their natural habitat outside my window, a quiet evening with a couple of friends sitting by a bonfire... that's the life I want, and AOC has no idea about what it's like here.

And so, she would destroy it all trying to fix problems that may exist in NYC, but which have never existed here and likely never will.

That's why I oppose her and her hare-brained ideas.

That is exactly what Cortez and her party have done.

Outsourced pollution.

Killed jobs.

Destroyed wealth.

The GREEN NEW DEAL turns us in to China.

Where Chinese slave labor are making solar panels instead of Iphones.

Only you can't buy one because you have no GD job.

Wait til the sun starts shining, and wait hours while your tesla charges it's batteries.

If you can afford one, that is.

Do as we say or we'll force you to? Kim Jong Un would be proud.

This one sitting right here is telling you it's a myth. It's a natural cycle that will likely peak before 12 years from now. Sounds like a good reason to me to demand we start this within 12 years, or someone will notice the climate is cooling without us doing anything.

Well let's talk about money interests.. What corporations would push a climate change "myth" , VS what corporations would push against climate change.

I could think of many corporations who would want climate change to be a myth as doing something about it would cost $$$$$.

It's always been a myth.

Science is science.

Politics is politics.

They've high jacked science just like they do biology.

You literally answered your own questions. Now you understand that those claims were made by Fox News. AOC never once said to get rid of fossil fuels and airplanes (see Japan).



Get rid of cows? Leave my hamburgers be, dammit!

LMAO. That one was so funny. Fox News got baited so hard with that one. Cow fart. HAHAHAHA. Epic trolling.



Upgrade all buildings?

I looked that up. The source seems to be coming from Washington Examiner.
