Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., mocked GOP Utah Sen. Mike Lee’s proclamation that having more babies will solve climate change — saying the surprising declaration cured her of “imposter syndrome.”
“Like many other women + working people, I occasionally suffer from imposter syndrome: those small moments, especially on hard days, where you wonder if the haters are right,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about her bouts of self-doubt.
“But then they do things like this to clear it right up. If this guy can be [a] Senator, you can do anything.”
Lee dropped his bizarre population theory earlier Tuesday as the Senate debated Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.
“This is the real solution to climate change: babies,” he said, the New York Post reported.
According to the Washington Post, Lee further explained “Climate change . . . is a challenge of creativity, ingenuity and technological invention. And problems of human imagination are not solved by more laws, but by more humans. More people mean bigger markets for innovation.
“More babies mean more forward-looking adults — the sort we need to tackle long-term, large-scale problems.”
