Ocasio-Cortez refutes conservatives for attacking her support of solar energy because it’s cold outside


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) mocked conservative climate change deniers for making complete fools of themselves on Thursday after they attacked her support of solar panels because it’s cold outside.

The freshman Democratic congresswoman is a strong supporter of solar energy as part of her Green New Deal proposal to eliminate carbon by finally switching from coal and oil to renewable energy sources.

Unfortunately, many conservatives including President Donald Trump, deny that climate change is real and some of them even used the extremely cold weather to attack her.

Specifically, Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft posted a temperature forecast graphic in order to claim that heating homes with solar panels is a bad idea.

Ocasio-Cortez, known for embarrassing Republicans who attack her, took aim at Hoft’s stupidity.

She then pointed out Trump’s stupidity after historian Kevin Kruse observed that the forecast shows that the sun is still shining on these cold days, which means solar panels are still taking in solar energy to generate power for homes.

It should also be pointed out that solar panels do work on cloudy days and energy can be stored to use when needed. Cold weather doesn’t mean solar panels stop working, and all Hoft proved is that he has no clue what he’s talking about.

Clearly, Republicans are so desperate to attack Ocasio-Cortez that they are willing to make complete idiots of themselves. And all they are doing is making her more popular.
