Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who proposed Green New Deal climate change legislation, warned that melting glaciers could release ancient diseases that the modern world is incapable of handling.
The first-term Democrat from New York said she woke up while on vacation at 3:30 in the morning worried about the consequences of climate change.
Im 29 years old, I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policymaker, and potentially have a family in the time of climate change, she said on Instagram live Tuesday, listing a number of impending environmental catastrophes like melting glaciers and rising sea levels.
Scientists fear that theres a potential that a lot of diseases could escape these melted glaciers, things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that theyre going to get into our water, and that humans could contract them, and they are going to be diseases that are thousands of years old that have vectors that we are not prepared for, that we have never seen, she said.
Ocasio-Cortez continued that even if primeval diseases arent unleashed, the effects of climate change would extend the range of mosquitoes.
Now mosquitoes are starting to fly further north that carry diseases like malaria, and a whole slew of other things, she said.

Ancient STDs, in her case I’d be worried too.................
This will not be mentioned in Pravda.
AOC doesn’t seem to understand that water is coming out
from glaciers all the time.
To hell with the glaciers; I’m worried that Los Angeles and San Francisco will release ancient diseases.
I wonder who told this moron to talk about this. The ditz would never come up with it on her own.
Don’t complicate her ideology with facts.
What an idiot AOC is. Even when glaciers and ice sheets are growing they are “rivers of ice” that constantly melt or calve icebergs at their terminus. There has never been a day, in the entire history of life on this earth, where ice was not melting somewhere.
I would tell AOC to go back to bartending but she probably sucked at that job too.
The people at Pravda aren’t stupid!....
Someone should explain to AOC that whatever is frozen in a glacier will come out regardless of climate change, since they are just a slow moving river of ice. Apparently she skipped that class in School..............
She is the best argument that exists for severely limiting the powers of government
She must have read this:
Or watched the Last Ship.
She is dumb as a stump.
She skipped that class!..............
What is the movie? It looks good.
I don’t have the skills but it would be funny to see Brian Williams photoshopped into that picture
This girl has zero coping skills.
As RedBadger has pointed out, “...and then there’s AOC stupid. “
