The Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore just shredded Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ridiculous and stupid Green New Deal.

“Then the people there will begin to starve. And that will spread out as a rock from the center of the metropolises all across the country and half the population will die in a very short period of time” Moore claimed.

Watch as Greenpeace Co-Founder shreds the Green New Deal on live TV:

Partial transcript:

Tucker: Well, Ocasio-Cortez not worried about losing jobs because more jobs will be made by the green you deal thank you very much for coming on. You are one of the Founders of one of the most environmental don’t make them as environment organizations in the world and you think the green new deal sounds terrifying. Tell us why?

Patrick Moore: Because it would be basically the end of civilization if 85% of the world and also 85% of the U.S.’s energy is in the form of coal, oil, natural gas were phased out over the next few, like ten years.

We do not have anything to replace them with. Yes, if we went into a crash course of building nuclear reactors, we could replace them for producing electricity.

But that isn’t going to happen because the greens are against nuclear and they are even against hydroelectric dams which at least is renewable. But they don’t support that either.

So basically they are opposed to approximately 98.5% of all the electricity that we are using and nearly 100% of all of the vehicle and transportation and ships and planes that we are using.

So I just — when I tweeted the other day and had a huge response, over 3 million impressions on Twitter, when I said you don’t have a plan to feed 8 billion people without fossil fuels. Or get the food into the cities where it’s needed for that requires large trucks and there’s not going to be electric trucks anytime soon hauling 40 tons of foods in the supermarkets where people in the city probably thinks it originates in the supermarket, but it does not.

It’s coming from farms out in the country where a few million people are growing the food for all the rest of the population. And if we ban fossil fuels, first agricultural production would collapse in a very short period of time.

There are these things called tractors and they use fuel. And all the other implements on the farm. And then there is the transportation. So when you have no fuel, how do you get the food to the center of New York, to Manhattan, where AOC is from?

You don’t.

Then the people there will begin to starve. And that will spread out as a rock from the center of the metropolises all across the country and half the population will die in a very short period of time.

As I also pointed out, there wouldn’t be a tree left on this planet. Say this was a worldwide thing. The United States isn’t going to ban fossil fuels if no one else but say the Paris agreement came into effect fully all around the world and everybody ban fossil fuels.

There wouldn’t be a tree left on this planet because that would be all there was for fuel for heating and cooking as they did in the old days when there was hardly anybody on the planet compared to what there is today. So just that one point — never mind the insanity of banding aircraft and fossil fuels using vehicles.

Tucker: You just completely blew my mind. I knew some of that. But the way you put it was really stirring for Patrick Moore, I hope you come back on the show.
