Ocasio-Cortez thanks unwitting Green New Deal beta testers in California

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thanked millions of unwitting Green New Deal beta testers in California as they lost power intermittently for several days.

“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.

Beta testers are early adopters of new technology before it’s released to the general public. The Green New Deal pilot program in California has been a great success according to AOC.

Unfortunately, many Californians have found that their efforts to save the world with electric cars and solar panels are incompatible with the Green New Deal as the electric cars aren’t able to charge without electricity and the solar panels provide energy to the grid, not to the house with the solar panels.

“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.
