Crenshaw Slams AOC, Liberals on Climate Change: FYI, 'We Actually All Care About the Environment'

1k view

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Tex.) on Candace Owens’ podcast, “The Candace Owens Show,” published Sunday discussed how, contrary to the Democrats’ narrative, most people, including Republicans and conservatives, “actually all care about the environment.”

“And most people believe in climate change and believe that mankind has something to do with that. How much is scientifically debatable," said Crenshaw, "but there is some effect and we all have an interest in reducing carbon emissions — just having cleaner air, cleaner oceans. It’s something we can get behind.”

“Young people especially conservatives and liberals alike really want to hear that message,” he said. 

His advice to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her colleagues? “Work smarter, not harder.”

Crenshaw explained that the Green New Deal is “just a wish list of socialist utopias” and that it wouldn’t serve any other purpose than “fundamentally destroy our economy.”

“The Green New Deal fundamentally destroys our economy and does a lot of other weird stuff, too,” he said. “Basically it’s just a wish list of socialist utopias, as was admitted by [Ocasio-Cortez’s former Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti]. But fundamentally, it is a dogmatic approach to environmentalism, which is solar and wind.”

He added that by solely relying on solar and wind and eliminating other options like nuclear just goes to show that liberals are “not serious about climate change.”

“Everything has to be solar and wind, there can’t be anything else, including nuclear,” Crenshaw said. “When you start banning nuclear, that’s how you know they’re not serious about climate change.”

He noted that just because the Green New Deal is ludicrous doesn't mean that Republicans shouldn't come up with a response. Crenshaw said that there needs to be a "common-sense approach" involving "cleaner technology that helps our economy and also helps the world."
