As They Say: There is No Planet B

The west coast of the United States is on fire. The sky was Orange from all the smoke. There are over 29 major fires currently burning. Over 4.5 Million acres of land has been burned across California, Oregon and Washington. Several dozen dead, thousands displaced.  This is just the beginning. It's going to get a lot worse. As Bernie said when asked if the Green New Deal is expensive "Expensive compared to what?" Where are our leaders? Not just Donald Trump, who's deafening silence on this catastrophe is transparently political (the states on fire didn't vote for him), but the Democrats who represent these states? Where is Nancy Pelosi calling for a a Green New Deal? Where is Gavin Newsom taking bold action to have California lead the way towards a green and efficient future? One where it actually is livable. Listen to the people and do something bold! Should ____ Do More to Address Climate Change? President - 60% Congress - 60% Governor - 52% Global Warming should be a high Priority for the next President and Congress? Agree: 52% A Presidential candidate's views on Global Warming are important to my vote Agree: 56% It's time our leaders started acting with the boldness required of the moment, and if they don't we need to hold them accountable. It's clear that only through sustained, collective action that we will be able to turn the tide in favor of the climate justice and a livable futures. The system is clearly broken, and our rulers are unwilling or incapable of making the changes themselves. The main question is, are the American people going to put up with this anymore? Are we going to allow our country to be ravaged by fire and hurricane and heat wave? With an election coming up there is still time for action! While his past record leaves much to be desired, Joe Biden's supposed current climate plan is at least not laughably small. But if we are to make his potential administration follow through, on even this first step, it's going to take an enduring collective movement of commensurate size and power, to the forces of economic oppression, ignorance and bigotry nihilism we face! To create that better future will require the stamina to outlast the powers that be, and convince them that there is no choice but to change or lose everything. Our country is suffering, and we have the opportunity to change it for the better. Let's get moving. Don’t miss this chance to  join us every Tuesday, in growing solidarity and power until we take back our democracy from amoral special interests, and greedy politicians: Don't Shop on Tuesdays!
