Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks her conscience when many turn aside and would rather not voice any criticism. A fine incisive mind, that can detect crusty old nonsense, unthinking bigotry and perpetuated un-earned privelige from a great distance.
Anyone that has a small asteroid named after them has to be worth knowing !
This world and particularly America needs clarity of thought, to ask for actions to be justified, for people to be held accountable for misleading and less than honourable intentions. Its was a fine moment to witness AOC make it plain and clear when questioning Michael Cohen a few weeks ago that trump deliberately misled and knowingly falsified figures, knowing how it would increase his financial positon with phoney over-valued assets and property for insurances purposes and wifully undervalued assets by huge amounts so as to minimize and falsify his tax position.
Well done Alexandria for making this plain and clear to us all.
We need role models, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an exemplary role model, donald j trump is not, yet the USA is saddled with him, literally saddled, he is riding America.
Thank goodness she is entering her prime, I extend my greatest heartfelt wishes to her continuing good work. A real person with real abilities and life experience, AOC majored in International Relations and Economics.
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
