Climate Change cannot be addressed because, like poverty, Ds need it as a boogeyman. If they were serious about it & believed it was a high priority there would be no 'reconciliation' & the bipartisan passed infrastructure bill would have been signed months ago. No, two turncoat senate Democrats are holding up legislation, House centrists would vote to pass the Biden BBBP.

When 65% of all Americans from both parties support BBB, those 'Dems' opposing it aren't centrists, they're siding with the 'destroy America to make Biden a 1-term president' radical fascists. STOP CALLING IT A CLIMATE PACKAGE…ITS THE “CRAM EVERYTHING WE CAN I TO ONE” PACKAGE AND CALL IT CLIMATE. 🤦

WHERE IS OUR INTEREST! DeanObeidallah Agree. Get thru as much of the BBB plan as they can. And scream it from the rooftops that Republicans voted against all of it.

Thunberg says COP26 is time for leaders to be honestFor climate activist Greta Thunberg, success at the upcoming U.N. climate conference would come only if world leaders honestly admit that their action is not living up to their words. There’s a reason NASA don’t have a stroppy teen running their engineering program, why the World Bank doesn’t have a maladjusted school dropout in charge of its Third World development, why UNICEF isn’t headed by a Scandi depressive with a narcissist complex… GretaThunberg Why? GretaThunberg Why are you reporting on this child
