"We’ve heard a lot of, frankly fantastical, stories about what we would do if we actually commit to saving our planet," Ocasio-Cortez said in a video posted on Twitter. "We have heard that it is a socialist conspiracy takeover to bring down climate emissions below the IPCC report of 1.5 Degrees Celsius. We have heard that it will cause electricity bills to skyrocket and prompt families to pay hundreds of dollars a month in their normal electricity bills."
"While we see these statistics and studies by Republican and conservative and pro-lobbyist think tanks develop these theoretical ideas about what nightmares could potentially await us if we actually stewarded our future. They fail to acknowledge what is happening right now," AOC declared.
