The left will do anything to slander republicans…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to an unofficial “GOP attack ad” highlighting her “shallow thoughts” on climate change.
MRCTV’s video featured Ocasio-Cortez telling her audience on social media the world must come together to take climate change-related action.
“[Do] you think overhauling our economy to decarbonize and save the planet is going to be expensive?” she asked.
“Try not decarbonizing our economy and allowing sea levels to rise, every coastal city to go underwater, every midwestern city or large swaths of the middle of the country experiencing drought on another level that we have not seen,” she says in the video.
“That’s going to be way more expensive,” she said, painting a picture of a world where humans will have to “artificially” create a food supply “because the earth no longer can sustain foods naturally or the sun is scorching the earth so much that we can’t grow the foods we need to be able to grow.”
“That’s going to be more expensive. So we need to bite the bullet on the cost because the alternative to not spending the money is A.) Death and B.) Spending even more money,” she concluded:

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the video, arguing it helps “spread & explain our policy positions.”
“I love everything about this GOP attack ad. Republicans underestimate my intelligence bc I invite people into my home & talk about policy in plain English instead of DC jargon,” she wrote.
“They think that’s dumb, so they end up paying for ads that spread & explain our policy positions,” she added:
