“Ocasio-Cortez, along with a growing number of Democratic colleagues, is asking Rep. Nancy Pelosi to create a select committee on a “Green New Deal” — comprehensive legislation for a mass mobilization of people and resources toward solutions to the climate crisis. If Pelosi agrees, the congressional committee could develop a plan to improve the economy and the environment within a year.”
See Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ is a smart plan (opinion)Things are a bit grim at the moment with Trump and his Government of Pigs gutting just about every environmental regulation Obama brought in but there is hope. With the control of the House back in Democratic hands some of the power to tax and spend is also coming back. I hope the GOP realizes its days are numbered if it doesn’t get back on the wagon. Trump won in 2016 because too many thought Hillary was a sure thing and they didn’t have to vote… That’s changed. The anthill is aroused and dangerous. Everyone knows about solar power and electric vehicles. Everyone knows Trump is the most corrupt POTUS ever. There are several ways to fix that. The GOP could revolt. The Dems could impeach. The voters could do the right thing. Whatever… It’s better late than never to fix what we’re doing wrong with the environment. It’s not enough to control waste. It’s not enough to control poison. We have to control the wanton release of CO2 into the environment. That will require the undoing of a century of gas-guzzling. That will be hard but it’s possible and this is the right initiative to get it started.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
