Ocasio-Cortez has blasted the people who believed her claims that Climate Change will destroy the world in 12 years

Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has responded to the backlash about her recent comments - claiming Climate Change will destroy Earth in 12 years - to say people who believed the statement must have the "intelligence of a sea sponge."

In January, while speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Day, the New York lawmaker said, "The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address Climate Change."

During her bizarre comments, Ocasio-Cortez also likened Global Warming to World War II.

Now AOC has lashed out at the response, claiming the remarks were merely a joke, while questioning the "intelligence" of those who took her remarks "literally."

Ocasio-Cortez claims that Republicans often mischaracterize her "dry humor + sarcasm" and “fact check” her jokes, suggesting her own comments shouldn't be taken literally.

In January, Ocasio-Cortez said 'The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address Climate Change.'

One of her alleged jokes apparently includes the January claim that Climate Change will soon destroy the Earth, comparing it to a modern World War II-style struggle.

“Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows,” Ocasio-Cortez said:

“I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,’ and your biggest issue is–your biggest issue is, ‘How are we going to pay for it?’” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II.”

When Ocasio-Cortez made the End Times prediction, she seemed very serious about the claim, with nothing to suggest the warning was made in jest.

Members of the audience certainly took the remarks literally as they cheered in agreement.

Video of the statement is available online leaving people to decide for themselves whether the congresswoman meant for this to be a serious claim or a sarcastic joke about the alleged dangers of Climate Change:

In other Ocasio-Cortez related green news, the progressive lawmaker was recently introduced to a garbage disposal unit.

Upon her discovery, AOC asked whether the waste removal device is “environmentally sound.”

“I am told this is a garbage disposal,” Ocasio-Cortez said in amazement.

“I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived.

"It is terrifying. I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is.”

Ocasio-Cortez asked, “Is this environmentally sound?”
