Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez applauded Californians for using natural light from wildfires instead of electricity generated from fossil fuels during a devastating blackout this past week.
“You’re showing us that you don’t need those harmful fossil fuels by grinding it out in the dark for days. And you’re relying completely on the natural light from the wildfires your great environmentalist policies created. It’s just an amazing stand of solidarity with Mother Nature and it should be commended!” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press conference.
Ocasio-Cortez has said that these hapless Californians are unwitting beta testers for her Green New Deal, which plans to make everyone resort to candles and horse and buggy.
“But don’t worry about that stuff,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Just know that you’re saving the world as you revert to gas-powered generators and horse and buggy transportation!”
Many Californias are reluctantly going along with the beta testing.
“I wholeheartedly support the Green New Deal but I just didn’t know it would actually happen this fast…,” said Marcy Fullerton of the Bay Area.
