AOC Cancels Doomsday:2031, Says ’12 Years Until the End of the World’ was Just a Joke

Remember the school strikes, the troves of children advocating for the Green New Deal because they were scared out of their wits, believing the 12-year time frame Cortez gave us all as to when the world was going to end, due to “man-made climate change?”

We first wrote about this here: https://magamedia.org/2019/03/30/doomsday-2031/

Oddly enough, her pinned Tweet still mentions a 12-year deadline..

WE knew it was nonsense.. my question is this: if AOC was aware of the kids’ fear, the strikes, the blatant misinformation being shared on social media, why then didn’t she come clean then? Why did she wait until the voting on her fail of a bill was over?

Funny, she cited a UN study, claiming it wasn’t a joke when we called her on it a while back:

On Tuesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared that she did not make a “gaffe” Monday when she said the world will end in 12 years if climate change isn’t stopped. As evidence, she cited a story and study that do not say the world will end in 12 years.

Monday, in an interview, Ocasio-Cortez said:

“And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.

“And, You’re biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II. And I think for younger people, we’re looking at this and we’re like, how are we saying let’s take it easy when 3,000 Americans died last year, how are we saying, let’s take it easy when the Nth person died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system?”

Tuesday, in response to a video tweet of her comment, Ocasio-Cortez expressed bewilderment that people would think she didn’t mean it, linking to an article in The Guardian citing a U.N. study:

“For some reason GOP seems to think this is a gaffe, but it’s actually a generational difference. Young people understand that climate change is an existential threat: 3,000 Americans died in Hurricane María. The UN says we’ve got 12 years left to fix it: https://amp.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/global-warming-must-not-exceed-15c-warns-landmark-un-report …”

But, while The Guardian article says weather events will be more severe and nature will suffer if global temperatures rise 2C degrees, instead of 1.5C degrees, it does not say the world will end:

The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.

….

At 2C extremely hot days, such as those experienced in the northern hemisphere this summer, would become more severe and common, increasing heat-related deaths and causing more forest fires

….

The half-degree difference could also prevent corals from being completely eradicated and ease pressure on the Arctic, according to the 1.5C study, which was launched after approval at a final plenary of all 195 countries in Incheon in South Korea that saw delegates hugging one another, with some in tears.

So is she telling us the UN study was a crock of shit? Is she telling us she lied? No…she’s saying ‘just kidding.” Right….she went on and on and on in several videos and interviews about the importance of the Green New Deal and the need for us to ACT NOW because the world will end in 12 years if we don’t.

She denied it was a joke in January…

The freshman Democrat pointed to a Vox article warning “we have just 12 years to limit devastating global warming” and a Guardian article claiming “[w]e have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe” — both articles were based on a United Nations report from October 2018.

That U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report examined what would need to be done in order to limit future global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100. The report was mandated by the Paris climate accord.

So is she now also saying the Paris Climate Accord is a bunch of BS as well?Huh..interesting…

Weird since she told people in attendance at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event with Ta-Nahesi Coates, the same exact warning she Tweeted about.

She reiterated her point on Instagram as well:


On Instagram Live Wednesday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke to critics who laugh and make jokes about her often-repeated statement that “we have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50%” to stop the most devastating effects of climate change.

“For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not,” she warned. “So, understand that the internet documents everything.”

Umm. Yeah, the internet DOES document everything.

Up until this point, it has documented you, Cortez, as being a raging lunatic, a fear monger, and a big fat liar. Just another fake politician lying to get what they want.

Tell me one more time you were joking.

I’m not.
