Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi directly linked the ongoing wildfires raging in California with the “climate crisis” during her weekly briefing Friday; saying “mother nature” is demanding Congress “do something about this.”
“We can no longer afford to deny the connection between the climate crisis and the wildfires… We can no longer be in contempt of the science that tells us why storms that batter the Gulf Coast are so severe,” said Pelosi.

Incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a lasting impression in her first few days on Capitol Hill; taking part in an unscheduled climate protest outside Nancy Pelosi’s office and being mistaken as an “intern” by staffers.
The self-described Democratic-Socialist left New York City for the nation’s capital this week, where the youngest Congresswoman in US history complained of her public misconception.

Cortez made national headlines after her surprise victory over a long-serving Democratic Congressman; bizarrely calling Israelis the “occupiers” of Palestine and saying the government should “just pay for” socialized medicine and free college tuition.
