Radical Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran with a new wild conspiracy theory that has been debunked over and over again. Ocasio-Cortez sent a tweet claiming immigrants are migrating illegally to the United States because of Climate Change.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “The far-right loves to drum up fear [and] resistance to immigrants,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Tuesday. “But have you ever noticed they never talk about what‘s causing people to flee their homes in the first place?”
Ocasio-Cortez continued, “Perhaps that’s [because] they’d be forced to confront 1 major factor fueling global migration: Climate change.”
The video Ocasio-Cortez tweeted was a video from activist group ‘The Leap.’ The video claims weather is getting severe with fire and hurricanes in the world because of climate change. This apparently has force people to migrate.
The issue is these theories have been debunked. The IPCC who initially made the claim that Climate Change affects the severe weather in the world today because there were no links combining the two. Second, Severe weather has not increased in the world that has went out of the norm.
The final claim is migration is happening because of Climate Change affecting the farming in the world. This is not a true claim that has any proof towards the claim. There is not a legitimate study that backs this claim outside of radical leftists who drive a narrative.
