Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is accused of having one of the most radical left-wing political ideologies in the entire Congress.
In a message to the Biden administration, Ocasio-Cortez condemned their approval of fossil fuel projects.
Specifically, AOC is furious about the Willow project by oil giant ConocoPhillips in Alaska.
Congresswoman @AOC spoke out at the #MarchToEndFossilFuels, describing a vision for the future with fully renewable energy by 2040, and "Not only will energy be renewable, but it will be available as public democratically-controlled goods for our most vulnerable communities." pic.twitter.com/SoKtQ3GbiO

“I’m in rooms in Washington all the time where people say that they have a commitment to this issue, but we need urgency on this issue right now, right now,” AOC argued.
“And the way we create urgency on the issue of climate is that we have people all across the world in the streets … demanding a cessation of what is killing us,” she declared.
“We demand change!” she shouted. “It will happen now!”
A number of Hollywood liberals showed up to accompany Ocasio-Cortez.
This star-studded event was meant to kickoff New York’s “Climate Week.”
“We have to send a message that some of us are going to be living on this planet 30, 40, 50 years from now,” Ocasio-Cortez promised. “And we will not take no for an answer.”
The protest is estimated to have drawn between 50,000 and 75,000 participants.
Today, over 75,000 people marched on New York City to demand the end to fossil fuel extraction which is fueling the climate crisis.
