Climahypocrite AOC Leaves Parade In Fossil Fueled Minivan With Subway Just Blocks Away

Yes, yes, another post on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but, she really is the most visible Democrat at the moment, and certainly the current poster child for climate change hypocrisy

Ocasio-Cortez leaves parade in 17 mpg minivan — blocks from the subway

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her getaway from a St. Patrick’s Day parade in a for-hire minivan on Sunday — despite being just blocks from a Queens subway station.

The leading advocate for the proposed “Green New Deal” hopped into a white Chrysler Town and County with livery plates around 1:20 p.m. after marching just part of the way in the 20th annual “St. Pat’s for All” parade through Sunnyside and Woodside.

The 2016 model of the vehicle gets an average of just 17 mpg in the city on regular gas, according to the US Department of Energy.

Hours earlier, Ocasio-Cortez (D-The Bronx, Queens) defensively tweeted against The Post for exposing her penchant for traveling in gas-guzzling private vehicles instead of using mass transit.

“Living in the world as it is isn’t an argument against working towards a better future,” she claimed.

Ocasio-Cortez and two aides were picked up at 48th Street and Skillman Avenue, less than four blocks from the 7 train’s 46th Street-Bliss Street station.

Now, that line about “living in the world as it is…” is just the same old Excuse that Warmists throw out in one form or another as to why they get to not walk the talk but that Other People should be forced to have thrust on their lives. I’ve seen it in one form or another for decades while deal with Believers in anthropogenic climate change, hence the reason “walking the talk”, “practicing what you preach”, etc., continuously shows up in my ‘climate change’ posts.

If your doctor is overweight and smokes and tells you to stop smoking and lose weight, do you listen to him/her? If you mechanic pulls up in their own car which has obvious mechanical issues, do you listen to that person? If a friend tells you to be more eco-friendly and their garbage can is overflowing with bottles and cans which do not get recycled, do you listen?

AOC had a snit-fit over that NY Post article, but, it’s spot on

Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustible-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

As Instapundit is fond of saying (and I add a few words to at the end) “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when those who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis in their own lives.”
