WARREN IN IOWA: Forget Midwest Droughts, FLOODS Now Proof of Climate Catastrophe

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.19

Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren continued to promote the ‘Green New Deal’ on the campaign trail over the weekend; using the current floods impacting Iowa as proof that “the consequences of climate change are severe.”

“The consequences of climate change are severe, and they are already affecting places like Burlington, Iowa. We have a moral responsibility to act—now,” posted Warren on social media.

“Must have already forgot that just a few years ago they were talking about the number of droughts and how the great lakes were at their lowest levels ever and climate change would lead to more drought,” posted one user on social media.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made similar claims in recent days; saying a typical DC thunderstorm was proof that the “climate crisis is real.”

“The freshman congresswoman began by sharing a video on Instagram briefly showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway,” writes Fox News.

“They just issued a tornado watch in DC. Oh no, there’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out! This is crazy,” said the Congresswoman.

“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”

“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue was quick to point out the legislator’s error.

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

“I thought this was fake but it’s from @AOC Instagram story. No idea what she means with ‘casual tornadoes’ and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any ‘climate crisis’. It’s just the weather in D.C,” he added.

ANOTHER NEW DEAL? Warren Proposes Using US MILITARY to Combat Climate Change

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.20.19

Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest proposal to combat climate change Monday; suggesting the use of the US military to confront global warming.

“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it — and making it worse,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.

“We have the most capable military in the world. It’s also the single largest government consumer of energy, and it’s dependent on fossil fuels. The Pentagon spends about $4 billion a year to power its bases at fixed locations and consumes tens of billions of barrels of fuel per year,” she adds.

“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough — the urgency of the moment demands more. That’s why today I am introducing my Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to harden the U.S. military against the threat posed by climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution,” concludes Warren.

The far-left Senator’s comments come weeks after she unveiled a series of new government programs that economists say will cost US taxpayers trillions per year.

“If we put a 2% tax on the wealthiest families in the country, we can provide universal Pre-K, universal free college, knock back student loan debt for 95% of Americans—and still have a trillion dollars leftover,” claimed Warren on social media.

According to leading economists, the Senator’s proposal to forgive student loan debt and introduce tuition-free public colleges would cost over $1.25 trillion over the next decade.

2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren pulled-back the curtains on her long-promised “Universal Child Care” proposal Tuesday; with analysts confirming the plan would likely cost $70 billion per year.

“Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposed a universal child care plan that would limit American families’ expenses to 7 percent of income regardless of how many children they have in care — paid for by a tax on the ultra-wealthy,” writes Bloomberg.

“Warren’s plan would cost taxpayers $70 billion per year, according to an analysis by Moody’s Analytics economists Mark Zandi and Sophia Koropeckyj,” adds the report.
