Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, took to social media on Thursday during a tornado warning in Washington, DC, and quickly tried to connect it to climate change — a prompting to call a meteorologist, you don’t know “the difference between weather and climate.”
The freshman Congressman began by showing a video on Instagram in short, the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief and rare, tornado-warning-inside of the Beltway.
“There are people who are stuck outside. We must, she said,” Ocasio-Cortez. “This is crazy.”
The Green New Deal advocate, then shared a story published the slides from PBS in March to ask if climate change makes hurricanes worse and put on a quote from the piece reads, “Rather than lying directly in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear in the Midwest and the Southeast.”
The tornado warning followed a devastating tornado in Missouri capital: Jefferson City the night before.
“Tornadoes are difficult to link-links to the climate change due to their nature (geographically-limited, acute pattern, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her supporters, as you reviewed the article. “But we know that the tornadoes HAVE changed. You are no longer limited to the Great Plains, and relocate to other regions of the country.”
“The climate crisis is think real y’all … we’re in casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.
Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, claims to be confusing climate change with “weather” in the capital region.
“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s make a simple analogy, try: weather is what outfit you are heading out the door wear. The climate is your wardrobe closet.”
