It would appear that AOC’s latest target regarding climate change are tornados.
It all started on Thursday when the National Weather Service issued a “tornado warning” for the D.C. area — this apparently freaked out the freshmen lawmaker.
She instantly went on Instagram to proclaim, “The climate crisis is real y’all. Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”
However, she was quickly fact-checked by meteorologist Ryan Maue, who pointed out that far from proof of a “climate crisis,” D.C.’s tornado warning was “just the weather.”
Maue then tweeted out, “I thought this was fake, but it’s from the @AOC Instagram story.”
Adding, “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.”

Apparently what frightened the 29-year old legislator from New York’s 14th Congressional District was a short-lived however intense storm, which brought heavy rainfall and high winds, however “no tornado.”
Which begs the question where has AOC lived for the past 29 years…perhaps in an incubator?
The skittish freshmen once again took to Instagram politically posturing, “Different parts of the country deal with different climate issues, but ALL of these threats will be increasing in intensity as climate crisis grows and we fail to act appropriately. #GreenNewDeal.”
Weatherman Maue apparently following AOC’s ridicules postings on social media responded to her stating “Ocasio-Cortez “does not know the difference between weather and climate,” adding “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”
The bemused legislator from the Bronx apparently realizing that she was confronted by someone who actually knows something about climate change turned to Google for some basic information regarding such things as “rain, storms, sunshine, and wind” and suddenly discovered that tornadoes are “challenging” to tie to global warming.
However true to her radical orthodoxy, the freshman lawmaker went on to explain “we DO know for sure that tornadoes HAVE been changing.” She cited a PBS article claiming that tornadoes are “sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.”
The article itself, like most research on climate change, leads to conjecture and long term speculation by researches, and does not attribute eastward shifting tornadoes to global warming, in fact, the 2018 study emphasizes that there are “complications in trying to study long term tornado trends.”
Adding, “The reporting has been susceptible to changes in population density, modifications to reporting procedures and training, the introduction of video and social media, and so on,” reads the 2017 National Climate Assessment (NCA).
However, thanks to the likes of Bernie, Beto and AOC, a stunning 67% of Democrats believe the world will come to an end in about 12 years if we don’t instantly change course, and begin living in huts like our ancestors.
The actual poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports contends that a majority (67%) of Democrats agree with Bernie and AOC, that America has roughly 12-years left until doomsday.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 20-21, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
The poll found that “that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters agree that the United States has only 12 years to aggressively fight climate change or else there will be disastrous and irreparable damage to the country and the world. 40% disagree, while 11% are undecided.”
This 12 years doomsday clock comes in large part from AOC’s claim that the human race had that amount of time to enact “meaningful” legislation to save the planet, a claim she later said was a joke and one that “you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think its literal.”
Apparently, by AOC’s definition, 67% of registered Democrats must have the social intelligence of a “sea sponge.”
