Watch Ocasio-cortez Get Humiliated On TV Trying To Explain Her “Green New Deal” and Cow Farts

Here ye here ye!! We have an announcement to make. Stop farting cows from ruining our environment! That’s right, this news is a gas, and we know just what to do here. Outlaw cows from farting, with a fine of slaughter, surely they’ll hold their flatulence which will save us all.

That’s right, the highly mocked Green New Deal that is the brainchild of Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has not been a stranger to, well, stranger things and headlines. Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist hopes this plan will fight climate change. Cortez said she had one specific goal that appeared on a fact sheet, a sheet that was widely mocked when a draft of it was accidentally published.

After is was brought to light, this document was initially denounced by Ocasio-Cortez’s staff, but later they had to come back and acknowledge that it was indeed a real thing.

One of the main components to this “Green New Deal” was something that seemed to be full of hot air, or lack there of. That’s right, we have fart jokes for days here. Cortez went on to try and explain things saying:

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.”

That’s right everyone, lets get rid of air travel, and those pesky farting cows. I’m not really sure how she plans to keep those gassy beasts at bay, but given her other, not so logical conversations she’s had, we’re sure she has some sort of idea cooked up in that brain of hers.

Just Thursday, Cortez went on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero” to explain the point made in her “Green New Deal”, hoping to explain her reasoning for it all.

Cortez said: “In the deal, what we talk about is … that we need to take a look at factory farming, period. It’s wild. And so, it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture. It’s not to say we’re going to force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, listen, we’ve got to address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real.”

She even added that: “We have to take a look at everything, climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives.”

Let’s forget that transportation and electricity qualify for 28 percent of the largest sources to the United States total gas emissions. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the main greenhouse gas is Methane, which is emitted by cattle, but only nine percent of the US total gas emissions are from agriculture.

It seems as though farting cows should be the least of our worries, I guess if we look at it as methathane issues, we as humans should also stop farting. I mewan think about it, there are so many of us out there, if we all stopped farting, we would help too. Talk about some hot air.

Maybe the farmers and dairy people of the world can just add Beano to their cows diet, that’ll do the trick. Good luck to Cortez and her gassy endeavours.
