MSNBC interviewed Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has decided that climate change is a result of “market failure.” She was defending her effort to push the ‘Green New Deal’  that failed by a Senate vote of 0-57.

“The one thing we can’t rebuke and cannot deny is that climate change is a problem of market failure in our economics. And moreover, ExxonMobil knew that climate change was real and man-made starting as far back as 1970. The entire United States government knew climate change was real and human-caused in 1989, the year I was born.”

“Forty years and three market solutions have not changed our position. This does not mean that we change our entire structure of government. But what it means is that we need to do something, something, and that is what this solution is about.”

She said that analysts just wave a wand to decide costs:

Ocasio-Cortez on analysts estimating her Green New Deal will cost $93 trillion: “They wave this wand and they say, ‘oh, it’s going to cost a bazillion dollars,’ like they sound like Dr. Evil… you know, let’s just start. Now!”

Ocasio-Cortez on her $93 trillion Green New Deal: “This is not a partisan issue because frankly there are Democrats who will get in our way from saving ourselves too”

She’s just auditioning for her spot as an ‘analyst’ on MSNBC.
