Amidst all the bad news, scandals and neo-fascist machinations in Washington, there’s finally some good news on the political front: A number of leading Democratic Party candidates for president are putting forth bold proposals that could actually solve the climate crisis.
That’s a big departure from the last presidential election cycle in 2016, when there was little or no discussion of what has now metasticized into a climate emergency.
There was also no serious discussion during the 2016 election cycle of the industrial, corporate-controlled food, farming and land-use practices that are major drivers of global warming, deteriorating public health, environmental destruction, species extinction and increasingly toxic air and water.
Fortunately, the conversation is evolving. It’s about time.
