Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found herself in hot-water this week for flying to Copenhagen, Denmark to deliver a 14-minute speech on the dangers of carbon emissions.
“It is unsustainable to continue to believe [in] our system of runaway, unaccountable, lawbreaking pursuit of profit,” she told the conference. “Our current logic created this mess and operating in the same way will not get us out.”
“I speak to you as a human being, a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future,” she added. “That our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus.”
Yet she flew to Denmark on a jet instead of doing the eco-friendly Skype-in? That’s consistent. https://t.co/1hnQdI3twG
