Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows yet-again this week; telling a roomful of supporters that the United States should entirely cease production of “fossil fuels” due to their negative impact on the environment.
Cortez was speaking in the nation’s capital Thursday night when she slammed the American oil and gas industry; pushing a “Green New Deal” that she claims can shift the US to 100% renewable energy consumption by 2035.
“There’s no debate as to whether we should continue producing fossil fuels. There’s no debate. We should not,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Every single scientific consensus points to that.”
“The time is always right to fight for what is right. It will never be convenient, but it is what our duty is to our future generations,” she added.
Cortez cited a scientific study released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change this week that claims global civilization has only 12 years to reverse the impact of global warming or face a “climate catastrophe.”
