OCASIO-CORTEZ: Hurricane Dorian 'Is What Climate Change Looks Like’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.04.19

Controversial Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cited Hurricane Dorian as the latest example of global warming this week; claiming “this is what climate change looks like.”

“This is what climate change looks like: it hits vulnerable communities first. I can already hear climate deniers screeching: ‘It’s always been like this! You’re dim,’ etc. No. This is about science & leadership. We either decarbonize & cut emissions, or we don’t & let people die,” posted AOC on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez’ comments echo similar statements made by Sen. Bernie Sanders in recent days.

“The fossil fuel industry is now the equivalent of the tobacco industry. It creates death and destruction, then spends billions denying its responsibility. Let us be clear: Hurricane Dorian has everything to do with climate change, which is the existential crisis of our time,” posted Sanders on social media.

Recently released satellite images are showing the extent of Hurricane Dorian’s impact on the Bahamas; revealing widespread flooding that has vast sections of the archipelago under water.

“Catastrophic Hurricane Dorian practically parked itself over Grand Bahama Island and now a striking satellite image of the Island shows vast areas of the island under water after Dorian passed through the region on Monday,” reports CBS Miami. “Grand Bahama Island was still in the path of Hurricane Dorian on Tuesday and the area continues to endure devastating weather conditions produced by the hurricane’s eyewall, according to the National Hurricane Center.”

Hurricane Dorian was downgraded to a Category 2 storm Tuesday afternoon; hovering over the Bahamas for more than 36 hours as it slowly makes its way towards the Atlantic coast of the United States.
