REPRESENTATIVE. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: "How many years until the end of the world?"
We have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50%, if not more, and for anyone who wants to make a joke about it, you can laugh about it, but your grandchildren will not do it.
So, understand that the Internet documents everything.
You know, you want to watch, you want to talk about looking at the back of the story, look back?
You look back and you open up history books on the civil rights movement, and you see these people protesting the possibility for African Americans and black Americans to have the right to vote, and they waved these fanatical signs, and they would brand signs that said things like, "What about the rights of whites?"
Just be aware that today, many people hide the fact that their families and grandparents fought against the principles of equal rights in the United States. Not 100 years ago, nor 80 years, but in the life of this generation.
Just be aware that if many people can hide their grandparents did in the civil rights movement, you should also know that the Internet documents everything. And your grandchildren will not be able to hide the fact that you have fought against recognition and bold action against climate change.
And for those of you who are trying to mock and delay that moment, I mean, I just feel bad for you. I pity you for your role in history right now.
