Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said tornadoes are the latest climate change threat after a tornado warning was issued for Washington, D.C.
“There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” the New York Democrat said Thursday in an Instagram video after the city was placed under a tornado warning. “This is crazy.”
After her brief video, Ocasio-Cortez discussed how tornadoes were part of the threat of climate change.
“The climate crisis is real y’all,” she said. “Guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country?”
