Joe Biden on climate change and the opportunities we can capitalize on, after he is elected

Today Joe Biden talked live from Maryland from what looked like perhaps a wetland adjacent area with plenty of flowing reeds in the background.

He spoke about the California wildfires, the ongoing hurricanes and climate change. He broadcast, that if he is elected, he will not deny climate change, but rather not only respect the science, but use it as a huge opportunity for the American worker and the country.

Rather than ignore and deny climate change, like Trump, he would capitalize on having the USA as a leader in a new frontier of energy efficient manufacturing with zero emissions. It would foster new technology and industrial growth with good union jobs and new products. He also would encourage a switch to electric vehicles and ensure adequate recharging stations along highways & major roads.

Sticking with Trump would enable worsening of the climate with more massive storms and foster backwards thinking.

While the speech lacked any indication of dementia or sniffles, ideas being pushed by
Trump supporters, I will admit, that there apparently were lots of live bugs laugh

Joe Biden On Climate Change ...


cowboy
Democrat dominated States go up in flames in anticipation of an election

Nothing to see here crazy

Let's just add it to to the list of 'convenient' events, eh, Mic? laugh

For common sense explanation watch here

What a dope in that video you just posted !
Why do you think all those trees died in the first place ?
Climate change ! Excessive heat with prolonged dry spells.
Yes, idiot humans & lightning ignite the fires.
And climate change makes the fires much bigger and more encompassing.
The most recent one got ignited from an idiot gender reveal party.
They stupidly used colored pyrotechs to indicate the gender of their unborn. doh
What ever happened to "It's a boy! " or "It's a girl !" cards, or cakes ???

Regardless, whether the fire got started naturally or very unaturally, it was waiting to happen
BECAUSE of climate change and not enough being done to reverse it.
It's irreversible.
The entire documentary is worth a watch, but the message is driven home in 8 1/2 minutes 44:00 - 52:30. ...

To Really put it in a nutshell - It's a Single sentence @ 46:00 "There are too many human beings using too much too fast."

Wind farms, solar arrays & electric cars can't change the course of civilization to which humankind committed itself before we were born.

'Going Green" isn't about Saving The Planet - It's a delusional desperate attempt to extend the run of Global Industrial Civilization beyond the planet's capacity to support it.
"We didn't ask to be here. We were born into the captivity of civilization and we get to be here to see how it ends."
- Guy McPherson

Pols, industrialists & enviro-capitalists ala David BLOOD & Al GORE (Yes. Really! Watch the documentary or search it) pander votes & generate profits and good for them. But Save The Planet! - Nope.

Those having difficulty dealing with "the grief that comes with the end of a story" can search : Inevitable Near Term Human Extinction (INTHE) Support Group ...

But believing a pol - Any Pol - will stop hurricanes with Union built electric cars is Nuts.

Call me old school - But a blue or pink blanket, maybe? ... dunno

Take it High Tech & post Facebook pics of the kid in his/her blanket.
For a pre-birth announcement post pics of the Ultrasound.

That wouldn't have worked with my 2nd grandkid - the tech couldn't tell cuz the kid had it's legs crossed.
Dad & Granddad (me) immediately drew the same conclusion - It's A Girl! flirty
We Were Right ... batting

That's IF things are not revered Mic. and people like Trump certainly make it more difficult.
But, it is possible and certainly worth attempting.
Throwing one's hand up and saying there is nothing we can do, NEVER gets things accomplished.

Reactions to I(!)NTHE have been likened to the Kübler-Ross Model of The Five Stages Of Grief such as an individual goes through when given a diagnosis of terminal illness -

1) Denial – The first reaction is denial. In this stage, individuals believe the diagnosis is somehow mistaken, and cling to a false, preferable reality. (e.g. What's pitched by The Don)

2) Anger – When the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue, they become frustrated, especially at proximate individuals. Certain psychological responses of a person undergoing this phase would be: "Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; "Who is to blame?"; "Why would this happen?". {e.g. Greta Thunberg - "How Dare You?!")

3) Bargaining – The third stage involves the hope that the individual can avoid a cause of grief. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek compromise. Examples include the terminally ill person who "negotiates with God" to attend a daughter's wedding, an attempt to bargain for more time to live in exchange for a reformed lifestyle or a phrase such as "If I could trade their life for mine". (See comment immediately above roll eyes }

4) Depression – "I'm so sad, why bother with anything?"; "I'm going to die soon, so what's the point?"; "I miss my loved one; why go on?"
During the fourth stage, the individual despairs at the recognition of their mortality. In this state, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time mournful and sullen.("The grief that comes with the end of a story" - See vid link in my comment above roll eyes )

5) Acceptance – "It's going to be okay."; "I can't fight it; I may as well prepare for it."
In this last stage, individuals embrace mortality or inevitable future, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event. People dying may precede the survivors in this state, which typically comes with a calm, retrospective view for the individual, and a stable condition of emotions. (Guy McPherson - "We get to see how it ends".)
I attended some of last Fall's Fire Drill Friday gatherings of Young Greta's Truants. I was surprised - Impressed! - at how many young folks have achieved "Acceptance" relative to older folks who are still in "Bargaining".
The kids were explaining Reality to their seniors - Quite remarkable, really.

In the case of INTHE there's ...
6) He who dies with the most toys/loot/political office WINS yay (e.g. D. BLOOD & A. GORE, and Ol' Joe pitching an to end hurricanes with Union built electric cars - Unless he really Believes it, in which case See #3.)

For folks wishing to cling to Bargaining 'til the bitter end ...

Older folks attending last Fall's Fire Drill Fridays gatherings were heavily invested in Extinction Rebellion.
The kids, less so - Go figure ... dunno

cowboy
I Was Not Aware!

Bargaining Clingers now have a Choice of Extinction Rebellion factions.

Seems the movement is bickering over Demand #4 -

Extinction Rebellion - U.S. (See above roll eyes) Demands that Black Lives Matter.

Extinction Rebellion - America Demands that All Lives Matter.

I'm pretty sure XR - America is the Original Extinction Rebellion, and suspect XR - US is a Leftist faction that broke away to show solidarity with BLM Demonstrators in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing.

Could be wrong ... dunno

cowboy
Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter ... very mad

Damned Silly!
XR factions bickering over which Lives Matter - SERIOUSLY?!
I mean, What The Hell?
We're ALL gonna be, you know ... DEAD by 2030 and then NO Lives will Matter.

2050 Tops ... And that's REALLY Stretchin' It!

Joe has a problem with Latino voters..Some bloody radio station they listen to is spreading the usual propaganda.
It's not just Joe & it's not new.
Latinos have Never been as reliably in the Dem's camp as, say, Blacks.

It's often attributed to Latinos being heavily Catholic & having a problem with the Dem strongly Pro Choice position.

cowboy
Many Latinos also FLED socialist oppression - so they'll walk over broken glass to vote for Trump and Republicans rather than vote for the party that has swung dangerously far to the left. The last thing they ever want to see again is the conditions they fled.
