CLINTON: ...Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I think it’s real.The record does show otherwise.
DRUMPF: I did not. I did not. I do not say that.
CLINTON: I think science is real.
DRUMPF: I do not say that.
Today's This Changes Everything chapter says what the world needs now is love, which really ought to trump stupid.
I hope millennials who tuned in weren't too disillusioned, like the indigenous British Columbian students Klein tells us about. We badly need their energy, clarity, and passion to turn us around and make us get our facts straight.
And we need to divest (How to...Why), to get our schools and other public institutions to divest, and at least get our school's president to think again about endorsing the climate commitment (ACUPCC) so many of his progressive colleagues have already signed on to. It's been almost four years since we initiated that conversation, he's had time to give it serious consideration. I think it's time to revisit it, time for a transition and an "energy descent action plan" of our own. We who also think science is real are not isolated and alone. We too can "find ways of expanding public spaces and nurturing civic involvement."
But let's not interrupt our guest.
