Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace, blasted Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her epic environmental ignorance and hypocrisy.
Moore was reacting to a bombshell story revealing that AOC is a rabid user of gas-guzzling car services like Uber and Lyft. Meanwhile, she tells everyone else that we should take the bus — or the world will end in 12 years.
AOC: Public Transport for Thee, But Not For Me
New York Post reporters Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein exposed Ocasio-Cortez in a damning article entitled “Gas-guzzling car rides expose AOC’s hypocrisy amid Green New Deal pledge.”
The duo observed in their viral New York Post story:
“Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to save the planet with her Green New Deal, but she keeps tripping over her own giant carbon footprint.
Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustible-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.
She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show.
In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.
The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.
By comparison, fellow freshman Rep. Max Rose — whose district is more than twice the size of AOC’s and, like hers, spans two boroughs — listed only 329 transactions for car services, totaling $6,091.29, campaign filings show.”
Moore: AOC Is Too Dumb to Know How Dumb She Is
Environmental activist Patrick Moore — the co-founder of Greenpeace — torched Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comical hypocrisy on Twitter:
“Whoops, AOC is a gas-guzzler. If only she realized that the CO2 she is emitting was helping plants grow healthier and increasing crop yields on farms around NYC. Then she could be sane.
It seems many people agree that AOC is a bit too big for her britches. I’m in good company here.
