Green Is On The Horizon In USA

“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.”

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.
