Hundreds of climate change protesters delayed a highly-anticipated football game between Harvard and Yale University over the weekend; gaining the support from national politicians like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Bernie Sanders.
“Officials said 42 people were charged with disorderly conduct due to the protest, during which students and alumni from both schools occupied midfield of the Yale Bowl during halftime. Some held signs demanding that Ivy League schools divest from the fossil fuel industry. Others had signs that raised issues about Puerto Rican debt and the treatment of the Uighurs of China,” reports Fox News.

CLIMATE CRAZY! AOC Questions if Miami Will ‘Exist in 50 Years,’ Asks ‘What Are We Gonna Do?’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Green New Deal’ this week; bizarrely questioning whether the city of Miami “will exist in 50 years” and asking “what are going to do about this?”
“I don’t think we’re discussing climate change the way we need to be discussing climate change. It is such a huge, broad, system issue. You can’t just say, ‘Is Miami going to exist in 50 years?’ We need to say, ‘What are you going to do about this?’” pondered Ocasio-Cortez.

“Alright everyone, it’s been a minute, we’re coming to you live from the Electoral College… Many votes here as you can see. A very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I can’t think of any other way, can you?” quipped Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

“Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as apposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally,” she states.
“Could you image if we had this kind democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group?” she asks. “If we weighed, for example, black and indigenous voters more because of unfairness?”
CLIMATE CRAZY: AOC Hails ‘GenerationGND,’ Says We Have Brought Planet Earth ‘To the Brink’
Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her massive federal program to combat climate change this week; hailing ‘Generation Green New Deal’ while saying people have brought the environment “to the brink” of collapse.
“Anything less than a solution on the scale of the crisis is a form of climate denial. It’s time for #GenerationGND,” posted AOC on social media.
“We have brought ourselves to the brink of an unsustainable planet in one generation. And we only have one generation to bring it back… Right now, our entire economy is unsustainable. The inequality in our economy is unsustainable,” narrates Ocasio-Cortez in the video.

A top lawyer in the United Kingdom took his country’s crusade to fight climate change to the next level this week; saying the consumption of meat products could be “banned” like tobacco and other controlled substances.
“Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale,” reports the Telegraph. “Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife . In a message delivered at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign, which encourages people to stop eating meat and dairy, Mansfield said he had a ‘single message’ to make ecocide a crime.”
“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous,” he told the crowd.
The official’s comments echo similar claims by European scientists earlier this year; saying humans may have to resort to cannibalism to combat climate change.
