Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is back from vacation which means her modern-day fireside chats via Instagram Live are back in action. With these online townhall comes a bevy of asinine and concerning statements coming from the freshman Congresswoman's kitchen.
Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire captured much of her comments from Tuesday night's showing. AOC says she had a rather stressful vacation due to one major issue she is most concerned about -- climate change (also known as global warming before predictions made by Al Gore didn't exactly pan out).
"Even when I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning, um, just concerned about climate change ...It really, like, freaks me out and it can be really, really scary," AOC told a fan who asked "How can save the climate Im trying to have a nice life" sic.

"I'm 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 added.
"You think overhauling our economy to decarbonize and save the planet is going to be expensive? 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 a level that we have not seen. Um, that's going to be a lot more expensive."
She then warned that it will also be more expensive to grow food artificially, and we need to bite the bullet on the cost because the alternative is "a) death and b) spending even more money."
