I’m a one issue voter: Climate disruption.
Little else matters.
“All the good that you have done, all the good you can imagine doing, will be wiped out by floods, by fires, by superstorms, if you fail to act now to deal with this crisis that is a gun, pointed at the head of the future.”
That’s from Van Jones, at the Forward on the Climate Rally, D.C., 17th February 2013. I was there. As was Bill McKibbin. I’ve “been there” since 1971 (*).
And, to my progressive friends, it’s triage. This is an emergency. We cannot do it all at once. We need to make choices, to do what needs to be done, putting the other important things later. Things just have to get out of the way.
Vote Bernie Sanders, 2016.
