On Monday, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a page from former Vice President Al Gore’s book and declared that the entire planet only has 12 years left if so-called “climate change” isn’t addressed immediately, Fox News and others reported.
“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?’” she said, comparing it to World War II.
“And, like, this is the war–this is our World War II,” she added.
According to Breitbart, she made her claim “during an interview with Ta-Nehisi Coutes, a leftist writer, at Riverside Church in Harlem in New York City for their Martin Luther King, Jr., Day MLKNOW event.”
Here’s video of her baseless claim as posted to Twitter:

So 12 years exactly or just sometime that year? I need to make plans.

Mark your calendar for the world to end sometime in the latter half of January 2031, just to be safe.
If this sounds familiar, it should:
Like. And stuff… Y’know…
Here’s more of her rant, according to a partial transcript posted at the Gateway Pundit:
“How are we saying let’s take it easy, when the nth person has just died from, from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system? How are we saying, take it easy when the America that we’re living in today is so dystopian with people sleeping in their cars so that they can work a second job without health care?
“And we’re told to settle down. I don’t, it’s a fundamental separation between that, that fierce urgency of now, the why we can’t wait that King spoke of, that at some point these chronic realities do reach a breaking point. And I think for our generation, it’s reached that. And, I wish I didn’t have to be, you know, doing every post but sometimes I, I, I just feel like people aren’t being held accountable. And until we all start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let ’em have it!”
Well, there you go. She’s just gonna let us all “have it!” We can hardly wait…
Readers should keep in mind that Ocasio-Cortez really doesn’t think much of actual facts, especially those that contradict her socialist worldview.

This, of course, is all part of her effort to build support for her “Green New Deal,” a socialist wish list designed to destroy the U.S. economy for an entire generation of Americans.
James Woods was right. Ocasio-Cortez really is, like, the most dangerous person in America right now.
