Greenpeace Co-Founder Rips "Pompous Little Twit" Ocasio-Cortez as "Garden-Variety Hypocrite" on Climate

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Tyler Durden / ZeroHedge

Greenpeace Co-Founder, Dr. Patrick Moore, has been in an ongoing spat with New York Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) over the overly-ambitious Green New Deal that could quadruple the national debt. Moore, who has since split with Greenpeace, now refers to himself as the “sensible environmentalist.”

The GND calls for an ultra-progressive bucket list of environmental goals such as the elimination of all fossil fuels, nuclear energy, air travel, 99% of cars and the retrofitting of every single building in America for “state of the art energy efficiency.” AOC’s plan even throws in government-guaranteed jobs – and simply hands cash to anyone “unwilling to work,” along with healthy food and a free house.

The plan would also, as Moore notes, kill everything on earth:

@AOC ‘s Green New Deal calls for:
“(J) removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”https://ocasio-cortez.house.gov/sites/ocasio-cortez.house.gov/files/Resolution%20on%20a%20Green%20New%20Deal.pdf …
Technically (scientifically) this would mean removing all H2O vapour and all CO2 which would mean the eradication of all life on Earth.
Brilliant. 🙄🙄

10:21 AM – Feb 19, 2019

After AOC suggested in late February that she was “in charge” until someone comes up with a better plan, Moore fired back, tweeting: “Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.

Yup. If you don’t like the , then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.

Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats.

Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get the food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.

7:36 AM – Feb 23, 2019

Several hours later, Moore explained: “You are delusional if you think fossil fuels will end any time soon, maybe in 500 yrs. AOC’s attitude is unjustifiably condescending. She is a neophyte pretending to be wiseHer kind bring ruination if allowed to be “in charge”. (from the cheap seats).”

May I suggest you argue the point, not the person. ‘Pompous little twit’ doesn’t come across very professional or serious @EcoSenseNow – just angry and immature. Maybe use your knowledge to support the inevitable – end to fossil fuels? Just a thought.

You are delusional if you think fossil fuels will end any time soon, maybe in 500 yrs. AOC’s attitude is unjustifiably condescending. She is a neophyte pretending to be wise. Her kind bring ruination if allowed to be “in charge”. (from the cheap seats).

Moore has continued his criticism, calling AOC a “garden-variety hypocrite like the others” who has “ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know.” 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez✔@AOC

I also fly ✈️ & use A/C

Living in the world as it is isn’t an argument against working towards a better future.

The Green New Deal is about putting a LOT of people to work in developing new technologies, building new infrastructure, and getting us to 100% renewable energy.

Patrick [email protected]

The “world as it is” has the option of taking the subway rather than a taxi. option of Amtrak rather than plane, option of opening windows rather than A/C. You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know

7:33 PM – Mar 2, 2019

Update: As the NY Post notes – AOC has a giant carbon footprint

since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign relied heavily on combustible-engine cars — taking Ubers and Lyfts instead of hopping on the subway

In her rebuttal, the Bronx-born Congresswoman said the GND is about systemic change — not about personal gas-guzzling practices.

Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign logged 1,049 car service transactions totaling over $23,000 between May 16, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2018, The Post found. Her campaign once booked 26 car-service transactions in a single day.

Even though her Queens HQ was just a one-minute walk to the 7 train, her campaign only made 52 metro card purchases, spending about $8,300.

And despite a high-speed rail being the cornerstone of her green strategy, the Democratic firebrand took Amtrak 18 times, compared to 66 airline transactions costing $25,174.54 during the campaign season. -NY Post

A few more thoughts from Moore and others who have jumped into the debate:

Nicely done.

I found the Boeing 787 10 was even slightly more efficient at 73 miles per passenger per gallon including luggage and cargo. So Ocasio, get lost! Let the real ‘scientists and engineers’ (you know, the ones you copied from on tests at school) work out the issues.

Good photo of @AOC after being told she’s not really in charge, or The Boss.

      I would like a bit more info on what she terms “healthy food” Does this mean bayer / monsanto genetically modified food is going to be banned. or the newer stuff having all sorts of “treatments” and being served up to us ..Of course her plan dovetails nicely into the nwo plan to eliminate most of the human population..She does strike me as a pompous little twit as well but at the same time her plan is just a bigger version of what I remember greenpeace promoted when they caused trouble all over the planet. Stop the wars and we will have more than enough money to grow food ..research alternative cost effective solutions to all the people issues.. Save a tree today, burn some coal..go for a ride in your car..breathe out deeply.. the trees will love you

      Nice!

    • Slimey

      You have put in a STUPID child. Children and women is what GOD sends you when you SIN! :cool:

    • Freeus

      She is deadly with the other indoctrinated minds that think climate change will destroy the world in 10 years. More likely Pole Shift, Nibiru, geo engineering and HAARP or her Globalist Communist friends with worst things.
