Infrastructure bill doesn’t do enough to address climate change

“People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” – Greta Thunberg

The thermometer and fires in Lakes in the Artic prove the magnitude of the problem. Some sacrifice is required of anyone who puts their family and children first. There are no easy answers. No cheat sheet.

We funded the transcontinental railroad. (It created new jobs.) We again have to come up with the seed money for climate change even if that means “wealth taxes” on those who have benefitted disproportionately as they convinced us to shove the problem down the road.
