Skip to comments.'Out of context': AOC backtracks on claim climate change will end world in 12 years (only 11.06 years left)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Sen. Rand Paul after he claimed she said the world would end in 12 years if nothing is done about climate change.
"Hey Senator! Would you like me to also take your comments out of context and pose them as your earnest position, as you have chosen to do with me?" the New York Democrat wrote Wednesday. "I assume the answer is yes, especially given that the GOP climate agenda is about as fictional as Spaceballs anyway."
Paul, 57, attacked Ocasio-Cortez's position on climate change earlier in the day. "No @AOC the world will not end in 12 years but we must, absolutely must do something, over the next 500 million years," he tweeted. "Some say we should develop a space shield to protect us from the suns increased luminosity. Im not against that but it will only be a temporary respite maybe a few million years. I do think we should also begin genetically altering O2 producing organisms to send to Saturns Titan and possibly the closest planets outside of our solar system. What say you AOC?"

The bartender gets a do-over on the planet's destruction? I'm pretty sure it doesn't work that way. She's got a few million dollars under her belt and is enjoying the jet set lifestyle with her new four legged CO2 factory. NOW the socialist changes her mind? Not gonna happen on my watch.
I thought that was a Greta Thundermug prediction?
Dwight from The Office?
Her responses to events are framed by references to silly movies?
She wants to be taken seriously but she thinks in those terms.
Yeah, she’s learned from her fellow travelers that when you project some apocalyptic event — that only you and your fellow commie travelers can solve — it needs to be around 30-40 years in the future. 12 years is too close in - and you’ll end up getting easily mocked. So AOC changes the ‘context’ of her definition of 12 years. She really meant ‘12 years from today’ - and today is always moving forward (at least until we run into the Real Global Warming event of 2 Peter 3:10).
Is there video or written proof?
What kind of global warming denier are you? You probably don’t even acknowledge that all the glaciers in Glacier National Park will be melted by the beginning of 2020 - and that has been SETTLED SCIENCE for years. (Well, at least until they had to take the signs down a few days ago....)
>...youd have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge ...
Speaking about her supporters? They seem to believe it.
All the climate change alarmism comes from the left. Your "12 years" was not an obvious joke, any more than it was an obvious joke for the visitor's center sign in Glacier National Park to say that its glaciers would disappear by 2020 due to climate change.
Actually, leftists have a near-monopoly on fact checking obvious sarcastic humor. Just ask the Babylon Bee.
She’s such a smartass, every thing she says is snotty.
I would definitely not tip her.
I highly doubt she wrote that. The horrible fact remains, that a whole generation of youths w/ cellphones have taken that statement of “12 Years”, repeated it on Twitter + Instagram + spread it throughout the world as FACT. Being the Skunk she is, she doesn’t get to amend what she said. I’m just wondering what price/penalty the Universe has waiting for her for stating such blatant Lies, as that was one hell of a Whopper for such a Newbie.
AOC - another Democrat with no principles.
Yeah, now that she is walking in tall cotton everything has changed.
She didn't write it, she said it.
"Millennials, and Gen z, and all these folks that come after us, are looking up and we're like 'the world will end in 12 years if we don't address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'"
Ridicule is mans most potent weapon. Alinsky
The joke was she was pretending to be a sane human being.
She is a blithering idiot.
Fine. The Air Leg Splitter admits she lied. The question is why ? For dramatic effect ? To scare the children ? Why ?
