Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Congresswoman for NY-14 (the Bronx & Queens). In a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. Mar. 12, 2019 1 min read

This, right here, is a problem.

Institutions can engage in unlimited financing of fossil fuels, building unstable pipelines + reaping profits, but when the bill comes to clean up oil spills & fix damages - they can conveniently kick the can.

So, who will pay for climate change?

Sea walls will have to go up as seas rise. Wildfires to put out. Roads repaved. Nascent technology to explore. Electrical grids replaced.

It’s too late for us to not have to deal w/ the impact of climate change. At this point we shouldn’t be debating IF we do it, it’s how.

The difference here is that we *already know* abt climate change.

We know that more fossil fuels will harm us. Banks know. Fossil fuel cos know. Gov + politicians know.

It’s not an accident. It’s cause+effect. We knew DAPL would leak. And we know the next gen is in danger.

You can follow @AOC.
