It was just last week, on Sept. 11, that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attended a town hall meeting hosted by the NAACP and proclaimed that it’s realistic that Miami will not exist in a few years unless her Green New Deal is passed and something’s done about climate change immediately.
Now she’s retweeting a piece from Mic and claiming that climate refugees are knocking at America’s door.
Remember when we said climate change would cause mass migration, & the right called us crazy?
Well, it’s happening. And walling ourselves off from the world isn’t a plan for our future.
It’s time to recognize climate refugees in our immigration policies. https://t.co/Oo0uyT65ti

Mic says that “extreme weather” has displaced 7 million people this year alone, citing a study by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center, which is apparently a thing that exists, claiming that in the first six months of 2019, “more than seven million people were forced to leave their homes by floods, landslides, tornadoes and other natural disasters.”
Even Mic uses “extreme weather” and not “climate change” in its reporting, and we’re not sure what climate change has to do with landslides, or floods or tornadoes or other natural disasters that have been around as long as the earth itself.
Rep. @AOC: "It’s time to recognize climate refugees in our immigration policies."
AOC repeats claim that migrants are fleeing climate change to the US, advocating for a more lenient immigration process.https://t.co/q8nZxjl8jU

I'm pretty sure the climate isn't persecuting anyone…
Besides, if Florida is supposedly going to be underwater soon like this lunatic has claimed, perhaps we should first prepare for an onslaught of "domestic refugees" fleeing their underwater homes? #AmericaFirst #WWG1WGA

She apparently hasn’t figured out the thermostat on her luxury condo in DC.
Will the Democrats (who privately says AOC is nuts) ever admit she is an embarrassment to herself and their party?

Another entry for the climate change is a hoax for every left-wing fever dream file.

@BarackObama blamed ISIS on climate Control. ??

It’s true that over at Slate, Eric Holthaus said in 2015 you could draw “a very credible climate connection to this disaster we call ISIS now.”
No. Next topic please

We’ll see who’s laughing in a few years when Miami’s underwater.
