In 2018, self-appointed and preeminent climatologist/environmental scientist, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ (AKA – AOC) said:
So, every time you hear someone repeat the “12 years” nonsense, just take a look at the countdown clock below and see how much time we have left from the actual date of her little fairytale, claptrap pronouncement – let’s not let AOC and her ilk continue to refer to a 12-year time frame like the old Soviet five-year-plans – you know, where they restart the countdown every year so it never gets to the end. Here is how much time the world has until the end of days that AOC was (and has been) pontificating about:
So, is the world going to end on a specific date? Is this like a Nostradamus prediction – just out of the blue, a wrath of G-D like judgment on the final day? Or will there by a slow deterioration of the planet? Is it going to happen in stages? If so, please, oh great sage of planetary wisdom (AKA AOC), give us a few milestones? You know, like in year 3 this will happen and in year 7 that will happen. That way we will all be able to dump our tech stock, sell our houses to suckers who don’t get it, drain our retirement accounts, stop buying beach houses at sea level (like President Obama did in 2020), and build bomb shelters at high altitudes that are heavily stocked with food, water, guns and ammo. If she has this advanced knowledge, shouldn’t she share it with the deplorables so that we (and her politburo bureau pals here in the U.S.) can at least live with the illusion that we can save ourselves? Or, does AOC believe that the world will end in one cataclysmic event? You know, we wake up on October 1, 2030, to some Old Testament terrestrial road show – real wrath of G-D stuff like fire and brimstone coming down from the skies, rivers and seas boiling, 40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifices, dogs and cats living together, and of course the obligatory mass hysteria – real end-of-days stuff.
Actually, something will happen between now and October 1, 2030. In the years remaining until AOC’s doomsday prediction implodes, the U.S. will have substantially lowered its emissions (even without being part of the money-pit sinkhole known as the Paris Accord) and China, India, and the rest of the world will STILL be producing over 75% of the emissions. And, they will be doing next to nothing about it except whining for more money and doing so from a high moral roost while swanning about at virtue signaling conferences and demanding that the U.S. pay them trillions of dollars in shame money so that we can feel good about ourselves.
We need to hold AOC accountable for at least some of her asinine comments and screwball ideas – so let’s just start with the one about the end of the world.
We can only hope that by the time her ridiculous doomsday prediction passes (and hopefully much sooner) Ms. Ocasio-Cortez will have been consigned to the dustbin of history along with the claptrap she peddles. Or, in the alternative, she moves her place of residence to where her ideological heart is: Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, China, or maybe even the “workers’ paradise” of North Korea – somewhere that will give her the freedom to spew hate about the USA from the pristine environment of one of the saintly proletariat countries.
