Can Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Save the Planet?

This article discusses the Democrat-Socialist who won the Democratic primary for the House of Representatives in New York, unseating Joe Crowley, in an electrifying win. Here’s her website.

Democrats lack an organized plan to stop global warming. Climate scientists say the newcomer has the beginnings of a good one. Progressives have been practically leaping for joy since 28-year-old self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won her primary election for Congress last week, an outcome that CNN called “the most shocking upset of a rollicking political season.” But perhaps no group has been more excited than environmentalists. In a political environment where even her fellow Democrats often stay vague on climate change, Ocasio-Cortez has been specific and blunt in talking about the global warming crisis. She also has a plan to fight that crisis—one to transition the United States to a 100-percent renewable energy system by 2035.
