Policy based on politics. Think about that for a minute


I get that there are some dumb things done in the name of environmentalism. I’ve mentioned paper straws in plastic cups, pushing against natural gas, fighting against nuclear energy etc.

To suggest that we can continue on our current path and not have our children and grandchildren have to face serious consequences is completely irresponsible and a falsehood. The scientists that I know personally are not studying “climate change” to bring down republicans.

Electric and hybrid cars are laughed at by the right. They are much more environmentally friendly in a complete lifecycle analysis than a ICE auto, but that doesn’t fit the politics, power and wealth dynamic of the right.

I will also say that history does not support your claim that people will naturally take care of the environment. So many examples of that not being the case.
