Ocasio-Cortez on L.A. Brush Fire: ‘This Is What Climate Change Looks Like’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday used the wildfire in California threatening the heart of Los Angeles to push her climate change agenda, writing “this is what climate change looks like” and warning that “scenes like this” will “get much worse” if the U.S. does not cut its carbon emissions in half over the next ten years.
