So once again Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making headlines for some weirdo comments she’s made about climate change, this time her freak out came as the result of a thunderstorm in the D.C. area.
According to her, this storm was the result our “climate crisis.” However, a meteorologist took her to school over her comments and set her straight.
“There’s people stuck outside!” she told her Instagram followers in a video, gesturing to the heavy rain and winds occurring outside. “We need to get them out. This is crazy.”
She also added, “Well, that was something. Alarms went off in the building advising people to seek shelter.”take our poll - story continues below
“Apparently the tornado moved/missed the city so quickly that they ended the warning shortly after,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, adding “apparently this is a thing that happens in the summer here? With increasing intensity?”
The freshman lawmaker went on to share a PBS story that examined a study trying to determine whether climate change worsens the effects of tornadoes. She quoted the piece, writing, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.”
Ocasio-Cortez told her followers, “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.), but we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”
“The climate crisis is real, y’all,” she added. “Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country.”
Meteorologist Ryan Maue decided to help correct her extremely bad science and how he handled the whole thing is just plain epic.
On Twitter, Maue wrote, “The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate. Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”
He also added, “I thought this was fake but it’s from @AOC Instagram story. No idea what she means with ‘casual tornadoes’ and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any ‘climate crisis.’ It’s just the weather in D.C.”

No idea what she means with "casual tornadoes" and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any "climate crisis".

This woman continues, on a nearly daily basis, to make a complete and total fool of herself in the public eye. You’d think by now she’d learn to stop posting every thought that pops into her head on social media, but alas, we couldn’t get that lucky it seems.
The constant panic mode over climate change is just a tactic being employed by the left to justify intrusion into the free market and to do a little wealth redistribution through regulations and fines. It’s socialism in action.
They need to have some sort of crisis to use as a springboard into justification for putting out more big government policy. Crouching horrible policies inside a manufactured crisis makes the pill of big government easier to swallow for the general public.
