So, this amazing moment of stupidity just happened.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believes that she can actually ban hurricanes.
Hurricane Marco and Tropical Storm Laura are both expected to hit the US Gulf Coast this weekend. Both storms – as of the writing of this post – are expected to slam into Louisiana, west of New Orleans. Laura is expected to turn into a hurricane later this week.
Marco is being forecast to make landfall around 7 PM and is currently a category 1 hurricane. Laura is being forecasted to enter the Gulf of Mexico on Monday and it is expected to turn into a hurricane.
Never fear… AOC is here, she thinks she can ban hurricanes.
Yes, the Green New Deal that would move the entire US economy to 100% renewable energy sources by 2030. What could possibly go wrong?
Just look at what happened in California earlier this month because of their “green energy policies.” The State experienced blackouts during a heatwave. Governor Gavin Newsom admitted the state needs to “sober up” that renewable energy sources haven’t generated enough power for the state during peak demand.
“This next few days, we are anticipating being challenged,” Newsom said during the heatwave. “We failed to predict and plan these shortages,” Newsom admitted boldly, “and that’s simply unacceptable.” He said he took responsibility for the crisis, and for addressing it immediately, so that “we never come back into this position again.”
Andrew Follett who used to track hurricanes hit back at AOC’s claim about hurricanes. Follett used science – real science not Democrat “science” – to show that climate change would probably lead to “fewer hurricanes and reduce the number that make landfall.”
