She talks to several people one-on-one as her staff ushers the group out of her office, saying she has another scheduled meeting. She was also against gay marriage until the Supreme Court legalized it.

The proposal would not become law; it is a resolution to put Congress on the record in favor of overhauling the US energy system from predominantly fossil fuels to run on 100 percent renewable energy by 2030.

Mike Hoffmann, executive director of the Cornell Institute for Climate Smart Solutions and faculty fellow at Cornell University's Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, told USA Today a year ago that if we don't do more about climate change, we're setting our children and grandchildren up for a 1-in-20 chance for disaster by 2050. "I hope this is as much a cathartic release for readers as it has been for us creators". It's our lungs that are going to get choked with wildfire smoke.

"I've been doing this for 30 years. You come in here, and you say, 'It has to be my way or the highway'". "And I'm just not here to listen to this belief that is not grounded in reality". "I was elected by nearly a million-vote plurality, and I know what I'm doing".

A reporter for the tabloid interviewed two neighbors of the Bronx condo listed on Ocasio-Cortez' voter registration. "The issue has gotten worse. I think she is wonderful, enthusiastic and passionate, but she's missing out on, in my opinion, one of the best parts of the job", McCaskill warned as she talked about "the reward you get for dealing with your constituents one on one".
