AOC Gets Taught a Lesson on Weather vs Climate After Blaming ‘Casual Tornadoes’ on ‘Climate Crisis’

Self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is sharing a “crazy” experience about a tornado warning in the nation’s capital and how it relates to the “climate crisis” — before a metrologist shot down her claim.

As the rain began to pour on Thursday, bringing about a tornado warning, the freshman congresswoman took to Instagram to share her thunderstorm experience and explain how there are “people stuck outside. We need to get them out.”

“This is crazy,” she declared.

While then sharing an article about the possible connection between climate change and tornadoes, she said:

“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.). 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,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding that “we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country.”

However, Ocasio-Cortez was slapped for her comparison of tornadoes and climate change, as meteorologist Ryan Maue questioned her meaning of “‘casual tornadoes’ and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any ‘climate crisis.'”

He claimed the congresswoman “does not know the difference between weather and climate.”

The meteorologist then taught her a lesson on weather vs. climate change:

“Let’s try an easy analogy:

Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door.

Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

Since taking on her role in Congress, Ocasio-Cortez has pushed her Green New Deal environment proposal to address climate change — which has a hefty price tag of up to $93 trillion over ten years, as IJR Red previously dove into.

In a few weeks she’ll denigrate people for taking her seriously. It’s her delusion! But, it doesn’t stop her from sharing her unhinged and deluded comments like a child who’s never seen the world and doesn’t understand it! I mean, how many people never knew what a garbage disposal was by their 20s, despite ever seeing one? Clueless woman!


I wonder how Obviously-Clueless gets from her abode in DC to her office??? I am going to guess that she does not walk but rides in a private car that uses fossil fuel. I am going to guess that she takes a plane between DC and NYC, another fossil fuel, polluting, conveyance.

The weather as Cortez sees it, is deception. God controls the weather, not climate change. Satan deceives the wicked because they do not know what the scriptures say about prophetic end time events. Satan distracts them from the truth with little effort. It’s suicide.

It’s interesting that the left will point to record high temps or tornadoes and equate it to Climate Change or Global Warming, but if you point out record low temps, record snowfall, and record ice at the poles, they will tell you that you can’t equate weather with climate.


AOC has a tornado in her scull. Every once in a while, debris flies out. This is what comes from electing someone based on her gender and ethnicity. What, no words of wisdom from the Muslims in the House? They must be trying to figure out what a tornado is. No, it’s not a screw.


“Screwball” sums it all up. Still have yet to come up with the proper adjective to sum up the people who voted for her. Have several ideas, but they will get me kicked off for life.
