Recently sworn-in Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez escalated her war-of-words with the White House regarding global warming over the weekend; viciously stating that “where we are” as Americans is “garbage.”
Cortez was speaking to a packed audience at the South by Southwest technology and music festival in Texas when she slammed the United States’ policy towards climate change.

“I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. This idea that 10% better from garbage shouldn’t be something we settle for,” said Cortez.
“It feels like ‘moderate’ is not a stance, it’s just an attitude toward life, of like, hmmm,” she added.
