      Or: “staying ahead of the alternative-fact-based national politics curve matters.”

      Or: “branding and messaging is what got us into this problem to begin with!”

    Yawn. We aren’t doing anything effective to stop climate change.
    Enjoy the upcoming shitstorm. And the drowning of entire nations (which we’ve already built walls around, because humans are So Nice).Report

      I’m sorry, I won’t be around to watch because I died along with the rest of terrestrial life when the Deepwater Horizon blowout depressurized the methane clathrates in the seabed and turned the atmosphere into a giant fart.

      Or wait, I died when the Yellowstone caldera cracked open and covered all of North America with magma in a couple of hours.

      Or did I die when antibiotic-resistant bacteria spread across the planet?

      Or maybe it was back when population pressures spurred resource competition that escalated into strategic nuclear exchanges.Report

    That article makes reference to local folks doing local things to conserve energy, etc. As it has always been.

    In AZ, you see a lot of places adding solar panels-houses, covered car parks, etc. This is where the changes happen, not some federal mandate.Report
