Recently, Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or “AOC” as she’s known to her fans online, took to social media to decry what she said was “Unprecedented flooding,” which she believes “is quickly becoming the new normal.”
Interestingly, the popular but controversial Congresswoman seemingly implied Republicans are to blame for it by supporting the fossil fuel industry.
“The GOP will mock [and] sow confusion until it’s their home swept away,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a follow up comment.
Climate change intensifies flooding, wildfires, & extreme weather.
It’s more than 1 day or 1 storm; it’s all of them. Places are flooding where they haven’t before; there are 90-degree days in Alaska in June. The GOP will mock & sow confusion until it’s their home swept away.
Needless to say, conservatives did not appreciate being blamed for flooding, and took to social media to let Ocasio-Cortez know how they felt.
For Democrats heading into the 2020 election and beyond, the issue of climate change may remain a top priority, but comments indicate that voters do not appear to share the same concerns.
