We only have 12 years left! Like Oh my God, we only have 12 years left until the world ends from climate change!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told us over and over that we needed to do something drastic to mitigate the deadly effects of climate change. Twelve years was all that the freshman congresswoman from New York City told us we had left.
Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half.
A #GreenNewDeal is our plan for a world and a future worth fighting for.
How did we get here?
What is at stake?
And where are we going?

But apparently, she was just kidding. The democratic-socialist said those people who actually took her, a sitting congresswoman, at her word were complete fools Sunday morning, saying that those who did have the “social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal”
This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.
Like the “world ending in 12 years” thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal.
But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows. https://t.co/pmkwrdeAnq

She’s admitting the 12 years was nothing more than a lie and a scare tactic in order to pass drastic, expensive changes. Thanks for clearing that up!
Also, the Democrat says the GOP is “basically Dwight from The Office.” Well, Dwight Schrute was basically the only reason to watch seasons 8 and 9 so…. thank you?
