Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has found a way to jump on the climate change bandwagon by now stating that she has awakened frightened from sleep because she’s worried about the negative effects of climate change on the world, according to Fox News.
“Even while I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night, at 3:30 in the morning, just concerned about climate change,” she stated during a livestream on Instagram. In addition to her new anxiety over the crisis facing the planet, Ocasio-Cortez also stated that she struggles with balancing her work life and she claimed that she’s afraid that climate change might affect her ability to have a family.
“I’m 29-years-old and I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policymaker and potentially have a family in the time of climate change,” she continued during the livestream. “And it really, like, freaks me out and it can be really, really scary.”
