Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is warning of potential damage to crops and the high food prices that could follow after the New York metropolitan area saw record high temperatures this past weekend.
It hit ~70° in NY, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Sunday night. In January. This weather at this time of year can be very risky for local farmers & families they serve.
If certain crops germinate/flower prematurely & a freeze follows, crops could fail or drop in yield. When food supply drops, prices rise, she continued, while adding the hashtag #ClimateCrisis.
Her post came in response to another tweet sent out by the National Weather Service on Sunday afternoon that confirmed record highs had been recorded in Central Park and Bridgeport, Conn., as well as other parts of the region over the weekend.

She needs to be canceled. Speaking like a filthy capitalist.
I tell ya, between her, Alyssa and Rose McGowan, who needs google.....just ask one of them.
Im at a loss on this crap. They dont understand that rising temperatures would actually be a good thing for humanity. No one dies from extended growing seasons. No one dies when its 70 and sunny. Meanwhile, the truth might be that we are heading into a solar minimum that could bring about massive cold across the planet and much drier air masses which leads to crop death and famine. People die when its below freezing.
The one question Ive been asking liberals with whom I engage on this subject seems to frustrate them: whats your end game? What does perfection look like? They cant answer. Usually because theyre just parroting what they read on social media but even the educated lefty, few and far between, concedes that global temperatures at 72 F year round are impossible. So what does their end game look like?
AOC will single handedly create millions of new climate sceptics in only 10 years.
The smart people were saying “we’re all dead in 100 years” because they were smart at stealing other people’s money.
You know, I think she actually has something here.
Up here in ND the temps are about 15 degrees warmer than they should be, and farmers are committing suicide at alarmingly high rates. The local mental health authorities cannot figure this out.
Those that aren’t offing themselves are selling out cheap, I mean dirt cheap.
This one guy sold a $500,000 combine to a junk dealer for scrap just to get rid of it because the market for implements no longer exists.
It’s so good to have a super intelligent little girl like AOC to help us figure out this important stuff.
Cherry Blossoms in Central Park are blooming. Does she think this is a “crop”?
The only thing cheaper today than yesterday are idiots like AOC. Dime a dozen.
She has a 30 year plan to prevent the end of the world in 12 years.
Her perfect spokesman is rehearsing his climbing technique:
I'm terribly worried about the crops in Central Park and Bridgeport, Conn. Crops have never had to survive warm winter days before. WE'RE ALL DOOMED!
These warmups are not unusual.
And we had an early winter....temps 15 degrees below normal.
Man has schemed to profit from doom since the dawn of mankind. When I was a kid, it was the coming ice age. Pollution would block the sun and the earth would cool.
Nostradamus was in on the hustle in the 1500's.
Gee it was 75 here in north FLORIDA yesterday. Great range day.
I wonder if she knows what a farm is? Has she ever been to the heartland or even Upstate New York?
Who cares what her opinion is...about any damned thing!
Gee, it’s nice and comfortable...
It’s The END of the WOOORRRRRLLLLDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go in the corner and cry. Soon we’ll all be dead, and I won’t have to listen to your crap anymore.
Yes, but for the modern progressive back, before recorded history means an MP3 player.
She read the Communist Manifesto to become smart...Of course, she never read the US Constitution...
BARTENDER UNIVERSITY - ROBOT 101
A guy goes into a bar in Louisiana where there is a robot bartender.
The robot says, “What will you have?”
The guy replies, “Whiskey.”
The robot brings back his drink and asks,
“What’s your IQ?”
The guy say, “168.”
The robot continues to talk about physics, space exploration, and medical technology.
After the guy leaves and the more he thinks about it, the more curious he gets, so he decides to go back.
The robot asks, “What’s your drink?”
The guy answers, “Whiskey.”
The robot returns with his drink and asks,
“What’s your IQ?”
The man replies, “100.”
The robot talks about Nascar, Budweiser, the Lions, and LSU.
The man finishes his drink, leaves, but is so interested in his “experiment” that he decides to try again.
He enters the bar and, as usual, the robot asks him what he want to drink.
The man replies, “Whiskey.”
The robot brings the drink and asks, “What’s your IQ?”
The man answers, “35”.
The robot leans in real close and asks,
“So . . . Do you folks really think you’re going to impeach Donald Trump?”
