TPJ: Many of these "key Democrats" are the same conservative Demcorats who ruined true universal health care reform via the public option. With "friends" like these, who needs enemies from the Republican Party? Democrats always seem to find a way to get elected and then become their own worse obstacle. Now, with this development there doesn't seem to be a viable party that truly sees the emergency of environmental degradation, which is appalling because what's at stake is nothing short of the global future of humanity. You'd think that would get the same priority as putting together a strategy for victory to be implemented to win a war that threatens humanity regardless of political differences. I think the environmentalists needs to switch tactics and frame this emergency a full blown war on civilization.
I still don't understand how Republicans are so against helping the environment when they are such advocates of leaving a better future to our posterity. Perhaps they don't see it that way because they are are "flat Earthers" who don't believe in climate change but considering what's at stake, isn't it better to be safe than sorry? Besides, pursuing such actions would boost long-term employment. It's a win-win to me.
