The reason AOC should not debate is that she would be made a laughingstock by MTG. AOC has platitudes but no real command of the facts of climate change. She also has no real understanding of the energy industry or transportation systems or even what is in the Green New Deal. Her grasp of economics is shockingly low. Her whole candidacy and tenure in office has been managed by the Justice Democrats and other Leftist think tanks. She can read prepared lines but has flubbed badly in impromptu interviews. She risks having a meltdown, being forced into a humiliating retreat, or making an extreme statement. When will it come? Will it be after AOC is asked how long it will be before the world will end after she is reminded she said four years ago the world will end in a dozen years? Will it be when MTG asks AOC if she still wants to ban flying? Will AOC find herself saying gas prices should rise to $5 a gallon or that home heating bills should double? No doubt AOC will come prepared by her handlers with a few key facts and some great zingers. However that won't be enough. MTG is an experienced debater who will come armed with the facts and with good lines to goad AOC into a monumental mistake. The larger problem are with her cause and her solution. The imminence and dangers of Climate disaster have been vastly inflated. Climate has always been changing and humankind has been adapting to it. We can continue to adapt. The adaptation can be gradual with minimal disruption to our way of life. There is no need for wrenching changes in our economy, or for punitive dismantling of our standard -of-living. MTG might get AOC to reveal the whole Climate Panic movement is a fraud , a Trojan horse to implement leftist anti-American policies.
