Radical Democrat Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) has taken to social media to deceitfully blames the wildfires in Hawaii on an alleged “climate crisis.”
In an alarmist post on Twitter, Bush used fearmongering tactics to advance her socialist green agenda by claiming that the so-called “climate crisis is here” and is “killing people.”
“My heart breaks hearing of the devastation in Maui,” Bush tweeted while sharing a post from NBC News on the fires.
“The climate crisis is here and its [sic] killing people,” she falsely claimed.
“It’s time for @POTUS to declare a climate emergency,” Bush added.

Other Democrat lawmakers also pushed fearmongering climate alarmism while commenting on the fires.
“Heartbreaking fires in Hawaii!” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) posted.
“Scientists are clear that climate chaos wreaking havoc on ecosystems everywhere is the new norm,” he falsely alleged.
“We need to take action immediately or else it will get even worse.”
“My prayers are with all impacted by the devastating wildfires in Maui,” Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) tweeted.
“#CA12 & the rest of the country stand ready to assist in the recovery.
“The climate is in crisis, and it’s not up for debate.
“We must declare a climate emergency & act before more lives are lost.”
The Democratic National Committee shared a video that featured a split screen showing fires on one side and Republican figures on the other side making comments that go against climate alarmist ideology.
The clip included President Donald Trump disputing “global warming” claims and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis saying that he opposes politicizing the weather.
“Another horrific disaster made catastrophically worse because of climate change,” the text of the Democrats’ post read.
“And Republicans are still denying the climate crisis.”

Dozens have died as a consequence of the fires in Hawaii.
“Lahaina, with a few rare exceptions, has been burned down,” Hawaii Gov. Josh Green (D) noted, according to the Associated Press.
According to the New York Times, Green described the situation as looking like a bomb exploded.
