A Few Comments on AOC's Climate Blame Game

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez obviously hadn’t seen real climate data when she tweeted this:

There has been little change in temperatures over the last few decades in the areas from which migrant caravans are originating.

And only Costa Rica has been below average in terms of rain— hardly a cause for mass migrations due to climate change.

If AOC wants a reasoned debate on the cause of the matter, she would do well to actually know the facts.

And if man-made climate change is driving this, it’s not showing up in crop production, which in Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras is improving! There is more food being grown.

It’s bad enough that climate-change protagonists are weaponizing the weather with actual events natural to the climate. But this has gone to a new level — weaponizing a nonevent.
