While participating in a recent Bernie Sanders-hosted symposium on global warming, newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared that a new form of global warming governance will usher in an era of “economic, social, and racial justice” in America, Grabien and others reported.
“As a matter of fact, it’s not just possible that we will create jobs and economic activity by transitioning to renewable energy, but it’s inevitable that we are going to create jobs,” she said. “It’s inevitable that we’re going to create industry, and it’s inevitable that we can use the transition to a hundred percent renewable energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America.”
She also suggested the federal government nationalize — that is, take over — Tesla’s technology.

“I think that there’s so much work that has been done and there are some outlying questions, especially when it comes to investment in technologies, when we as a public choose to invest in private — when we as a public choose to invest in new technologies, we deserve a return on that investment,” she explained. “And for far too long we gave money to Tesla, we gave money to a ton of people, and we got no return on our investment that the public made in creating technologies. And it’s about time that we get our due because it’s the public that funded and financed a lot of innovative technologies and that’s another, you know, way to go.”
In other words, she thinks that stopping so-called “climate change” will end racism. And that will only happen with a new set of draconian laws where the government simply takes over technology. Perhaps she also believes curing male pattern baldness will lead to the end of tooth decay–the logic is just as sound.
This pretty much goes without saying…
Yes, it does — nicely.
Apparently, an entire New York congressional district filled with other wackos…
Sorry Celeste, everyone knows you can’t fix stupid.
We sure are–big time
Grabien noted that Ocasio-Cortez compared her vision to FDR’s New Deal, calling it a “Green New Deal,” and did not elaborate on how any of this would create “economic, social, and racial justice.”
Color us not surprised…
