Greenpeace Co-Founder Rips Ocasio-Cortez Over Green New Deal: “You Don’t Have a Plan…You Would Bring Mass Death.”

Greenpeace Co-Founder Rips Ocasio-Cortez Over Green New Deal: “You Don’t Have a Plan…You Would Bring Mass Death.”

“You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others.”

Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace, tore Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apart over her Green New Deal, calling her a “pompous little twit” because she doesn’t seem to have any clue what it would take for her plan to work, realistically.

“The problem with @AOC is she doesn’t know whether or not she knows what she is talking about. Makes it harder to think straight,” he wrote on Twitter.

Moore also had words for Ocasio-Cortez when The New York Post pointed out that she uses gas-guzzling cars via Uber and Lyft to travel despite being close to subway stations:

Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustion-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.

Ocasio-Cortez and her staff have also logged “66 airline transactions costing $25,174.54 during campaign season.”

Moore called her the “garden-type hypocrite like others.”

Moore “left Greenpeace 33 years ago when they were hijacked by leftists like @AOC.” In fact, Travis Nichols, a spokesman for Greenpeace USA, brushed off Moore’s criticisms because “he doesn’t represent Greenpeace.” Nichols also claimed that Moore did not help create Greenpeace, but admitted that Moore “played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years.”

Moore also slammed the Paris Climate Accord:

She is, in a word: green. Her solution is gray, and perhaps wicked… another one.

Her campaign spent $25,000 on 66 airline transactions “during” the campaign. Well, her district is split in two between the Bronx and northern Queens. I’ll bet you country bumpkins did not know that the only way to get back and forth between the Bronx and Queens is to fly.

Can’t believe that there is no connection between Queens and Bronx.

Nancy Pelosi is upset because it took her decades to build her wealth and influence. Her sense of personal style was formed at her father’s knee; he was an old school mobbed up pol tied to the old school Mafia. The young radicals in Congress see a limited pool of available graft, want to start getting theirs now, and want the Gerontocrats like Pelosi to get the heck out of the way.

Ocasio-Cortez is playing a high risk game. Amazon pulled out of the NYC deal because in NYC, the deal isn’t the deal, it’s the opening bid in a game of special interest carveouts.

True, AOC played the gentrification angle to help put the kibosh on Amazon’s bid.
But the recent news that her campaign is totally crooked signals that she’s not an annoying idealist who has to grow up and learn how the world works. Instead, anybody who wants to bring business to her district had better be prepared for pay to play at a whole new level. The deal Amazon left on the table was a bargain compared to what it’ll cost the next corporation.

She now has a year or so to bring home a big chunk of pork; if she can do that the redistricting threat will go away, Pelosi will see lots of virtue in her, AOC will continue her rapid climb to power, and the sky is the limit.

If not, she’s still young. She’ll be wealthy and contending for Speaker or even the Presidency at 50 or 60 instead of 35 or 40. Big deal.

“You would bring about mass death.” a feature, not a bug, for the extreme eco-believers.

    But but but….>

    There’ll be some much more free space for the Park Slope Thesbian Trust-Fund Billionaires like her to cavort and roll around it!

It’s Patrick Moore who misses the boat here. This “Green New Deal” was never a policy proposal; it’s always been pure politics. The question isn’t whether it’s insane, but whether voters will buy it.

And, all too many will.

Consider selecting an over-the-counter remedy from a drugstore shelf. One is labelled “EZ Sleep Aid,” another “Sinus Relief.” Both actually contain the same amount of the same antihistamine, and thus are pharmacologically equivalent. Yet they are very different products (that likely sell for very different prices), because someone with insomnia will not pick up the “Sleep Aid” package, or visa-versa. Because, shoppers for OTC remedies seldom know or care what’s actually in them but make their selections entirely on the basis of what the package promises.

And so, too, with Green New Deal: all too many voters will never consider what’s actually in it but buy on the basis of what’s promised on the package: Full Employment, The Rich Will Pay For It, Punish Them Nasty Polluters, A Glorious Green New Day!!

Even if she truly is a pompous little twit, and even if depriving farmers of fossil fuels to run their machinery (and fertilizers, such as anyhdrous ammonia derived from natural gas) would turn much of the developed world into Venezuela (or Biafra, as the starving often refuse to go gently into that good night) almost immediately.

The Green New Deal only appeals to urbanites and some suburbanites. The reason for that is that many, if not most, of this group has no idea where the things that they need, for survival, actually come from.

They do not get their food from fields, streams or the oceans. They got it from the local supermarket. They do not know that all food animals and plants give off CO2. They do not know that virtually all of our commercial food chain relies upon fertilizers produced from fossil fuels. They do not know that fossil fuel powered vehicles transport this food to their local store. Many of them live where they can walk to other locations or ride public transportation. They do not consider that these means of transportation operate on fossil fuels, even those which use electricity. They do not get their electricity from generating stations, most of which are powered by fossil fuels, they get it from a receptacle in the wall of their home. They do not understand that clothing, most of which is made from fossil fuels now-a-days, is produced and transported to stores using fossil fuels. The target audience for the GND is the ignorant and insane.

Now, AOC MAY be just as ignorant and delusional as the target audience, though it is not likely. But, most of the politicians who have signed on to this fever dream do not. They know exactly what it is all about. And, just like the old time medicine drummers, selling Doctor Feelgood’s Magic Elixir And Furniture Stripper to the ignorant masses, they continue to make wild, irresponsible claims to get what they want from their audience. After all, the Elixir IS made from all natural ingredients; kerosene, coal tar and opium are all found in nature. But, politicians, just like Medicine drummers are not likely to drink the same medicine which they sell to the rubes who hang on their every word.

It is all a scam. Nothing more.

I had never listened to her audio in her “kitchen cooking” video, and did this week.

I cannot believe what an idiot this woman is. I did not think it was that bad.

Still in shock.
