Most GOPers' View of Climate Change: "Routine forever..."
What Happens is in Our Hands
From this article - the following:
In American politics, Pope Francis’ encyclical has not made legislative action on climate change inevitable, but it has made the issue unavoidable. The politician’s shrug and quip: “I’m no scientist” — is no longer acceptable. If climate change is a global threat, then addressing it, as the Pope argued, is both a moral and public requirement.
Ten or 15 years ago, this issue was less divisive. But it got pulled into the polarization vortex. Now the two sides do not merely hold different policy views; they have different versions of reality. The camps not only advocate different solutions; they also inhabit different factual universes.
Story continues at the link above – a very good and well-reasoned article – sadly most GOPers will pass on reading it, when in fact they might benefit from reading it and passing it on to others.
My view: Most GOPers who deny or don't have a concern about the dramatic change on Mother Earth do so for one reason, I believe: They figure it will not happen in their lifetime or maybe even their kids’ lifetimes, so why worry now. Just leave the problems or solutions for someone else.
Imagine that view over time. Where would we be? Probably in caves too afraid to come out and explore anything. Thanks for stopping by.
