Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared this week that her “dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet” because of the threat of climate change, becoming emotional as she delivered the keynote speech to the C40 World Mayors Summit.

“I speak to you not as an elected official or a public figure, but I speak to you as a human being,” the Democratic socialist told her audience. “A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children’s future.”

Fox News reported that Ocasio-Cortez “went on to decry the impacts of climate change and indicat[ed] that Puerto Ricans died because they lived ‘under colonial rule.'”

“I speak to you as daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer,” she said., arguing, “Just two years ago one of the deadliest disasters in the United States struck in the form of Hurricane Maria. The climate change-powered storm killed over 3,000 Puerto Ricans, American citizens — my own grandfather died in the aftermath — all because they were living under colonial rule, which contributed to the dire conditions and lack of recovery.”

The C40 World Mayors Summit is a “coalition of leading cities, businesses and citizens that rallies around the radical and ambitious climate action our planet needs,” according to its website. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was just named new chair of the organization, and “led a coalition of 94 municipal leaders in a Wednesday agreement to pursue a global Green New Deal,” Market Watch reported.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez — who has aggressively pushed for a domestic Green New Deal in the U.S. since taking office in January — praised the C40 mayors for signing on to an international version of her proposal for aggressively reducing carbon emissions while enforcing social justice initiatives.

“I am inspired by this coalition and the commitments made for a global Green New Deal,” the congresswoman said in a statement. “If we work to join forces globally, we will be able to defeat our greatest threat and realize our greatest opportunity.”

    Climate change is the least of her children’s worries. Having a confused, unintelligent, mentally ill mother would be their biggest problem.

  • Shari Early says:

    People like her do not need to reproduce. I donn’t know if stupidity is genetic but I’d rather not take a chance. She never planned to have children and I bet her boyfriend does so she’ll use any excuse she can.

  • Elliott says:

  • Leslie W Davis says:

    I am so thankful that she won’t be breeding!!

    If she is worried about climate change then perhaps it is best she doesn’t have kids. Perhaps someone should remind her that kids mean more throw away nappies, more consumption etc. etc. She can contribute to a greener new deal by not having kids.

  • Lets hope this big mouth Brain Dead SKANK is sterile. The world needs no more Commie brain dead protoplasm, The Demorats have the mrket on that already!

  • Joe says:

    This broad will stop at nothing to get re-elected. I just hope her constituents (all democrats) will see through her false tears and outraged emotions and vote for whoever is running against her in 2020!
