“Climate delayers aren’t much better than climate deniers,” says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s wrong: The delayers are far worse. They know better but lack the guts to take on true evil. Thank God for the younger people like AOC and the Sunrise movement ready to try and save our future.
As noted in a Sunrise movement post: “Both parties have failed our generation, and have continuously put the interests of the fossil fuel billionaires over protecting our air/water/homes.” Warmed-over Obama-era environmental policy: respect for the Paris climate accord, a mid-century conversion to renewable energy bla-bla-bla is not enough! My older generation have ZERO moral authority on climate issues. We did NOTHING! More power to the young Green New Dealers!
Youth carry the moral authority on climate change. It’s they who will reap the whirlwind my generation sowed. So please older establishment: just shut up about the Green New Deal being “extreme.” You’d be making radical proposals too if your entire life was on the line.
