Ocasio-Cortez May Be Working On Another Documentary

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman Congresswoman from New York, has already appeared in one documentary about her incredible race to Washington, DC. Now, she’s reportedly talking to filmmakers about creating a documentary on her proposed climate-change legislation, the Green New Deal.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is talking to the filmmaker who chronicled the political upstart’s run for Congress in a Netflix documentary about a new project highlighting her Green New Deal environmental plan, according to a report Tuesday,” the New York Post reported. “Rachel Lears followed the rookie lawmaker and three other women running during the 2018 midterm elections in ‘Knock Down the House,’ which aired on the streaming service.”

The Green New Deal, a plan to address climate change while creating new environmentally friendly jobs, is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s special focus as a Representative. The Congresswoman tweets often about environmental issues and how to address them.

“Our extractive, wasteful, fossil fuel economy is posing a direct threat to our own lives,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Monday. “There is a better way: one that’s conscious, just + prosperous. We will not be able to save our planet without first changing ourselves. That is the task before us.”

Also on Monday, AOC clapped back at Senator Rick Scott of Florida for mocking the Green New Deal on Twitter.

“What’s next? Will we have to register sharp knives? Maybe @AOC will make us register every time we buy meat as part of her #GreenNewDeal,” Scott tweeted. AOC replied: “That a sitting US Senator can say something lacking so much critical thinking + honesty is embarrassing to the institution. If you were a female candidate, maybe you’d be called ‘unlikeable,’ ‘crazy,’ or ‘uninformed.’ But since you’re not, this inadequacy is accepted as normal.”
