NEW SOCIALIST “IT GIRL” CONTINUES TO PAY DIVIDENDS: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: People Maybe Shouldn’t Reproduce Due To Climate Change.You know why I don't think we're 5, or 10, or 20 years away from a so-called tipping point regarding global warming/climate change/extreme weather? Because you can only cry wolf so many times. And yes, in that story, there really was a wolf at the end--but there's no reason for me to believe it's this time. And besides, only the boy who cried wolf died, not the huntsmen who came to his faux rescue so many times before.
AOC was born in 1989, the same year that AP reported that “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000,” and the New York Times published a column by Al Gore headlined, “An Ecological Kristallnacht. Listen.” Presumably, she’s glad that her parents ignored such apocalyptic scaremongering.
