In a speech just prior to Earth Day to try and relaunch her Green New Deal legislation, radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) declared that so-called climate change is caused by racial injustice.
“The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost,” she claimed. “Which means that we must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change, that the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change.”
Fact check: none of the above is true.
“Because we are allowing people… to deny ourselves human rights and deny people the right to health care, the right to housing and education,” she claimed bizarrely.
Fact check: no one is being denied healthcare or housing or education. Ocasio-Cortez seems confused about what exactly causes changes in the weather.
