Ocasio-Cortez: The World Will End in 12 Years Due to ‘Climate Change’
Democratic Socialist compares global warming to World War II MLK Day event
Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that the world will end in 12 years if the human race doesn't act to stop "Climate Change."
The New York Democrat also likened Global Warming to World War II during her bizarre comments while speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Day.
Ocasio-Cortez declared that Climate Change is a "generational" issue that "millennials" and younger people are more focused on.
AOC went on to express disbelief that American taxpayers aren't finding ways to fund ways to stop Global Warming.
“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?'" Ocasio-Cortez said.
"This is our World War II," she added.

According to Fox News, the Democratic Socialist said the fight against Climate Change is war.
In November, the White House released a federal report that found that the impacts of naturally occurring climate change are being felt across the country.
The report predicts that “extreme weather and climate-related events” are going to worsen in the years to come -- with a significant impact on the economy.
The National Climate Assessment finds that extreme weather disasters “have already become more frequent, intense, widespread or of long duration and have cost the U.S. nearly $400 billion since 2015.”
Ocasio-Cortez has made waves ever since she won the upset victory in New York against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, who was a top Democrat in Congress at the time.
She is now the outspoken advocate of the Green New Deal, which is meant to address economic inequality and climate change.
Ocasio-Cortez recently featured in a promo for the Justice Democrats in which she puts out the call to her fellow Democratic Socialist activists to start ousting Congressional members of her own party, insisting it's "#OurTime."
"That's how we got the civil rights movement, the women's rights movement, that's how we got the labor movement, queer rights, and marriage equality," she declares.
"It didn't happen by people playing it safe."
