Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.-N.Y.) said outside the Capitol this week that people her age “have anxiety about having kids” because of the impact of climate change.

“I am going to live in a world that is fundamentally altered by climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a video interview that was published by TMZ.

“So is every young person,” she said.

“First of all, we’re seeing it now,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “Like we are living through this right now. We are experiencing it right now.

“But especially if you are under 50 years old, if you’re under 40, 30, you know, 20, the younger you are the more of our lives and our futures are going to impacted by this,” she said.

“And, you know, even people my age are stressed and have anxiety about having kids,” she said. “Just because we want to make sure that we’re bringing our kids into a healthy world, into a stable future. And you shouldn’t ever have to be anxious about that.”

And, you know, even people my age are stressed and have anxiety about having kids. Just because we want to make sure that we’re bringing our kids into a healthy world, into a stable future. And you shouldn’t ever have to be anxious about that.
