Ocasio-Cortez tweets video of damage caused by Dorian: 'This is what climate change looks like'
"This what climate change looks like; it hits vulnerable communities first."

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) retweeted a video showing the extent of the damage already caused by Hurricane Dorian as it ravaged the Bahamas over the past few days.

In her post, the freshman lawmaker writes that the video "is what climate change looks like; it hits vulnerable communities first."

"I can already hear climate deniers screeching: "It's always been like this! You're dim," etc," she wrote. "No. This is about science & leadership. We either decarbonize&cut emissions, or we don't & let people die."

The minute-long video showed flyover shots of Abaco in the Bahamas with the pilot pointing out all the things on the island that are "gone" following Dorian's destruction.

And Bernie ain't no better !


Bernie Sanders

@SenSanders


The fossil fuel industry is now the equivalent of the tobacco industry. It creates death and destruction, then spends billions denying its responsibility.

Let us be clear: Hurricane Dorian has everything to do with climate change, which is the existential crisis of our time.

Dorian must be racist as well. Drowns the Bahamas expending all of it's energy; then hangs sharp turn NE and the brunt of it misses Florida.

AOC had better get the hate crime police to track down Dorian!

Like, hurricanes have just started because of, like, what we're doing to the planet with cow farts and all. That's pure science. Like, hurricanes that we're responsible for also like pick out the poorest locations to unleash their fury, so like, we need to like de-carbonize and cut emissions of cow farts and stuff.

Meanwhile, these politicians exploit a natural disaster to ensure power and wealth. Instead of global warming...it's political pocket warming.

Haven't you ever read about the formation of a hurricane? Most of our Atlantic hurricanes start with a single cow fart in Africa, which then develops into a tropical depression, and eventually a hurricane. The Coriolis force makes the fart rotate as it moves across the ocean.

None other than John Durham :  (HE HAS THE POWER TO PROSECUTE)

Attorney General William Barr reportedly assigned U.S. Attorney John H. Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation, but this is not the first high-profile case Durham has undertaken.

Durham went after Connecticut street gangs in 1992 and prosecuted mobsters in the Gambino, Genovese and Patriarca crime families,  TIME Magazine  reported. Durham was also responsible for exposing former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland’s corruption in 2004, which led to the governor spending a year in prison.

Former Attorney General Janet Reno commissioned Durham to investigate the FBI’s relationship with informant and Boston mobster  Whitey Bulger  in 1999. Durham’s team was responsible for indicting Bulger cronies Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi and special agent John Connolly Jr. who are portrayed in “ Black Mass ,”  according to The Day .

Durham also investigated a case at the request of former Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey in 2008 involving videotapes the  CIA  destroyed that depicted the torture of terrorism suspects. He further examined the CIA’s handling of detainees at the request of former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. under the Obama administration in 2009, according to The NYT.

President Donald Trump nominated Durham in 2017 to be Connecticut’s U.S. attorney. Durham received bipartisan support and the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed him in February 2018,  according to New York Magazine .

Tlaibs district in Michigan was Conyers for like 50+ years.

Reps could run Mother Theresa and she wouldn't win.   I suspect the same is true in those NY and Minn districts.   Tlaib barely won her Primary and only because it was a big diluted group of candidates.   She won the main election by a landslide which any Dem in that district would.

Pretty much like many Republicans win only because they come from a district that would not vote for any other party, no matter how unqualified, or immoral, the person they voted for is. Party line first, country be damned. And that goes for both sides of the political spectrum. 

Unfortunately, that means in many areas the candidate best qualified for the job in representing the people and helping do the best for the country are never given a real chance to win. 

The party first and country...who cares attitude of so many candidates and voters today is the biggest challenge our children and Grandchildren will come to rue in the future.

If some climate change denier posted pics of a sunny day and used them to say there is no such thing as climate change, he would be justifiably criticized for it. Here, a climate change advocate (for lack of a better word) shows a storm (weather) and claims it's an example of climate change and the only thing we hear from the Left is crickets? 

C'mon folks, it has to be universally stupid - or not at all - to declare that an individual ongoing weather event is somehow support for or against the reality of climate change. This is especially true for something as ordinary as a hurricane off Florida in September.
