Prominent environmentalist Shellenberger: ‘I am calling Bullsh*t’ on Ocasio-Cortez! Declares AOC is ‘a climate fraud’ – Rips ‘Green New Deal’ as ‘climate fakery’

Now that more details about the “Green New Deal” from New York Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been released, a major figure in the environmental community, Michael Shellenberger, is calling “bullshit” on her plan for failing to support nuclear energy. Shellenberger also labeled Ocasio-Cortez a “climate fraud” and he is outraged by the fawning uncritical mainstream media coverage the “Green New Deal.”

Environmentalist Michael Shellenberger declared: “I am calling bullshit not just on but on her progressive enablers in the news media who are giving her a pass on the most crucial test of moral and political leadership of our time when it comes to climate change: a person’s stance on nuclear power.”

Shellenberger, is the President of “Environmental Progress” and an activist  Time Magazine has called a “Hero of the Environment,” and he is a Green Book Award Winner.

An enraged Shellenberger continued: “I am calling bullshit on climate fakery. Anyone who is calling for phasing out nuclear is a climate fraud perpetuating precisely the gigantic ‘hoax’ that [Oklahoma] Sen. James Inhofe (R) famously accused environmentalists of perpetuating.”

Shellenberger also directed his ire at the mainstream news media for giving the plan “a pass.”

“If you want to be a self-respecting progressive or journalist who is fairly considering or covering the climate issue, please stop giving Ocasio-Cortex and other supposedly climate-concerned greens a pass. THEY ARE INCREASING EMISSIONS.” Shellenberger wrote on Twitter on February 7.
