If you’ve looked at the news in the last couple of days, you’ve likely watched in horror what has been happening in Kentucky. Flooding. Massive floods, the likes of which have never been seen before. At least 25 people are dead. That number may rise. Homes have been swept away. Other homes have sustained massive damage.
It is being called a 1 in 1,000 rain event. And it’s fueled by climate change. The earth is heating up, and we’re being tested. This issue is yet another one Republicans refuse to take seriously, with some Republicans actually joking about it.
Climate deniers will kill us if we let them, and that’s just another reason to vote blue. This event in Kentucky is not an isolated incident. Missouri just experienced a flooding disaster. The west is burning. All over, we see evidence that is screaming a big warning — do something.
There is no doubt that WE’RE doing something. And the reconciliation bill that Senator Schumer and Manchin hammered out will surely help. This bill — The inflation reduction Act of 2022 — has $369 billion to fight climate change.
One thing this legislation will do is cut carbon emissions 40% by 2030. But we still face our biggest adversary when it comes to climate change. The GOP. Look at their reaction when this deal was announced. Did they give one thought to our planet? Nope. Instead, they decided to shit on all of the nation’s Veterans.
Look — actions speak louder than words. The actions of the GOP clearly say they could not care less about our planet. This is a global emergency. And this is yet another reason we must keep Republicans from obtaining power.
The GOP is an “instant gratification” party. They think about what they can get at the moment — not what things will be like in 10 or 15 years. Do you think a little thing like the earth overheating bothers them?
Nope. President Biden said it himself when he spoke at a power plant in Massachusetts: “Not a single Republican in Congress stepped up to support my climate plan. Not one.” That says it all. Biden has said climate change is an emergency, and he’s doing something about it. Let’s get behind him and keep our biggest adversary in this area — the GOP from ever getting power again.
