Marjorie Taylor Greene makes a startling point about Ice Age taxes and insults AOC
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) railed against climate change programs in Congress Wednesday, not just because she doesn’t believe in man-made climate change — but because people didn’t have to pay taxes to fight it during the Ice Age.
“Humans do not influence climate change” said Greene. “You’re not going to tell me how much tax people paid back in the Ice Age and how many changes governments made to melt the ice? The climate will continue to change.”
She continued, “And there’s no reason to just open our borders and let everyone in and continue funneling over $50 billion or how many billions of dollars or trillions of dollars to foreign countries around the world just because they don’t like the.” climate change.”
Greene’s comments came within hours after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) announced during a Senate Budget Committee hearing on health care costs related to climate change that “warming the globe is actually beneficial.” and Republican attempts to cut spending.
Green allegedly presented her faith at a Murray County, Georgia, town hall.
“How much tax and how much money did Ice Age people spend to warm the earth?” asked Greene. “Maybe, maybe we’re living on a ball that goes around the sun, flying through the universe, and maybe our climate is just changing.”
Unlike Greene, millions of climate scientists have long agreed that humans are directly influencing global carbon emissions and associated global temperature rise. This was reported by NASA that 97% of “actively publishing climate scientists” agree.
While Greene is right that during the last Ice Age people didn’t pay taxes to keep the Earth from cooling, it’s because formal government agencies that could have funded so much did not exist 100,000 years ago.
However, the congresswoman continued to rail against climate change-related spending like the Green New Deal, even insulting colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) for introducing that framework to Congress and the public.
“I’ll tell you what the New Deal and our new infrastructure plan will do.” said Greene. “It’s going to get us to net-zero carbon emissions, right? So we have to stop using oil and coal, right? Because that makes a lot of sense for a little girl named AOC from New York.”
She added: “You can’t even make that up.”
This is the first wild claim Greene has made publicly. She previously promoted an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about “Jewish space lasers” — and was fairly convinced that former President Donald Trump was fighting the “deep state.”
In February, the House of Representatives stripped Greene of her committee duties.
