The immense scope of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal made it perfectly clear that it had to do with a lot more than just addressing climate change. Ocasio-Cortez is a democratic socialist, after all, and remaking the American economy is a big part of what she, and a lot of climate change alarmists, are all about.
HuffPost editor Nora Biette-Timmons found herself added to a Twitter Moment Tuesday after posting about our current “climate emergency” and the need to move away from capitalism:
11,000 scientists have declared we are in a climate emergency. Among other things, we need to move away from capitalism and instead prioritize “sustaining ecosystems and improving human well-being by prioritizing basic needs and reducing inequality.” https://t.co/EVofxi58WO
