Here we go again. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has declared a 12-year climate “tipping point” in which we have to act in order to fight “global warming.” See: Ocasio-Cortez on Millennials: ‘We’re Like the World Is Going to End in 12 Years if We Don’t Address Climate Change’
Earth ‘serially doomed’: The official history of climate ‘Tipping Points’ began in 1864 – A new ‘global warming’ 12-year deadline from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez
Ocasio-Cortez is only the latest activist to join in the endless climate “tipping point” movement, joining former Vice President Al Gore, former President Barack Obama, UN leaders and Prince Charles. The new best selling and award-winning skeptical climate book that debunks the climate fear movement, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change, devotes an entire chapter to the long and silly history of climate tipping points, beginning in 1864!
