AOC and the Democrats have declared climate emergency to combat the global threat.

The resolution is non-biding.

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic lawmakers, including six presidential candidates, on Tuesday unveiled a Congressional resolution declaring a climate change emergency to spur "sweeping reforms" to stem a dangerous rise in global temperatures.


The non-binding resolution, introduced by Democratic Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Earl Blumenauer and Senator Bernie Sanders, "demands a national, social, industrial and economic mobilization" to "halt, reverse, mitigate and prepare for the consequences of the climate emergency and to restore the climate for future generations."

It responds to a projection by the United Nations Integovernmental Panel on Climate that the earth could warm 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in less than 12 years, causing "irreversible, catastrophic changes" to the planet.
