I respect your view. I respect the progressives who despair.

But I think both are mistaken. Climate catastrophe is the elephant in the room. It’s not a political issue and parties are irrelevant. What’s relevant is that both parties have failed for 40 years to do anything meaningful about climate catastrophe and it’s HERE NOW.

That’s because both parties are funded by billionaires and corporations that love fossil fuels and—with their bribes—make policy.

Both parties will kill us, although the GOP will do so faster and with more glee. The petroleum devils must exposed, openly ridiculed, never listened to, and met with the contempt they deserve—if WE still care and if we actually love our children.

If we depend solely on the ballot box we are all already dead. Let’s make noise, loud noise, every day and change the focus of the world end this insanity.
