As Twitchy reported earlier, Beto O’Rourke announced his plan to deal with climate change and immediately took a lot of heat from devotees of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal, which proceeds from the idea that we have only 12 years (well, 11-and-a-half now) to reverse climate change before human extinction. O’Rourke was shooting for a zero-emissions future by 2050, long after we’d all be dead.

Since it was climate change day, O’Rourke then released a video of himself at Yosemite National Park, flailing his arms around and spouting some nonsense.

And what’s with the hands?

He and Biden need to rein those hands in.

O’Rourke seems to have gotten the message that 2050 is way too far out to be thinking about, so he corrected course on MSNBC with Chris Hayes, confirming that, yes, we’re down to 10 years to stop the heat death of the planet.
