Ocasio-Cortez just loves to talk about Climate Change to her Instagram viewers. Her latest argument against Climate Change is that it could release ancient diseases from melting glaciers…or something:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says she is scared of diseases she claims that are going to escape frozen glaciers and they are going to get into the water and kill people
AOC mentions mosquitos, which do kill tons of people, and shows anxiety over it (:45 mark) pic.twitter.com/h17cT7Ijya

Here’s a transcript from the Daily Caller in case you prefer to read it:
“Things that were frozen for thousands of years, and that they’re going to get into our water, and that humans could contract them, and they’re going to be diseases that are thousands of years old that have vectors that we are not prepared for, that we have never seen. Um…and so that’s a concern…Even if there are no diseases frozen at all in these glaciers, you have diseases that are spread by mosquitoes, and now mosquitoes are starting to fly further north that carry diseases like malaria, and a whole slew of other things.”
I’m honestly not sure how diseases can be frozen in glaciers, but then I’m not a brilliant scientist like AOC. Oh wait…
But she adds the caveat that even if there are no ancient diseases frozen in glaciers, that mosquitos are moving north because Climate Change and they will kill us all with malaria!
Let’s go ahead and make this an open thread. Enjoy!
