AOC praises California for cutting carbon footprint to zero in blackout

People may be suffering in California due to socialist economic policies and corrupt politicians but some Americans are celebrating.

US representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), self-proclaimed democratic socialist, thinks it’s, “great that California has cut its carbon footprint to zero,” with the rolling blackouts that have plagued the state for the last week.

“The rest of American can learn a thing or two from California’s beautiful socialist paradise,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Using only firelight to see at night and only going outside to defecate on the sidewalk are things that everyone needs to do! See socialism works!”

“Places like Venezuela and North Korea, which has virtually no carbon footprint whatsoever, really know what’s good for everyone.”

Ocasio-Cortez pointed to another positive from the blackout: dozens of COVID patients have died since there is no electricity to power the equipment. “Poof! Lower health care costs!” she exclaimed.

“Yeah, it’s true people are dying, but should they really be alive if they can’t live without destroying the environment?”

At the time of publishing, there is no end in sight to this environmental success story.
