"They were Audubon members, Nature Conservancy members. But they were conservative, and I grew up not thinking that the environment should be political at all," says Backer.

You're right, it shouldn't be. But lots of things that should be one way aren't. So you're going to have to make a choice if you value the environment or your conservative politics more.

"If President Trump wants to get my vote, he's going to have to prioritize climate change in a way that he has not done over the past four years," says Backer.


Oh, my, my. You sweet, summer child.

"I am intelligent enough to understand that the environment is an issue that is particularly important to me, since I'm so very young and will be forced to live on an increasingly unlivable Earth long after the leaders who are ignoring the damage they're inflicting are now dead and will no longer care. However, what's more important to me is working to ensure that the systemic systems of racial and sexual oppression that have worked to the benefit of my parents and grandparents continue to work to my own benefit as well. If they can't, then I'm just not sure that saving the environment is worth it."

We support the racism and classism, but could Hair OrangeSkin please consider saving the economy for us to exploit when we get older and take the reigns of power?

Tl;dr

Young Republican realizes that if the world is too destroyed too early there won't be anything left for him to loot?

I feel bad for the guy. He clearly is not rich enough to afford climate-change resistant underground bunkers and henchmen with shock collars. And starting some non-profit organization is not going to get him the kind of money he'll need for heavy-duty nuclear winter proof shielding.

"Scientists say that time line is short, but Inglis believes the country is more likely to succeed if both sides of the aisle are focused on thechallenge."

Good luck with that...

Gestalt: The damage being wrought by ocean acidification and fossil fuel-laden extreme weather events is undeniable at this stage, so they've managed to comport their entire worldview to supposing that it will still somehow fit.

This coming from the party that mocked evidence as alarmist, and seeks to reject any sort of worldwide effort that will be necessary to mitigate the problem.


They're the antisocial party that can't cooperate with others to solve large problems. Instead, they deny the problems exist.

ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Donald Trump DGAF what the world's gonna be like in 10, 20, or even 5 years. He'll be dead then, and he knows his kids can afford to barricade themselves against the crisis indefinitely.

/This assumes Donald Trump acknowledges his own mortality.


And that he's capable of understanding the idea of the future.

Here's Becker's American Climate Contract.

Clearly it is the work of someone far outside the mainstream of the American right. It actually admits climate change is real, and offers positive suggestions for minimizing its impact and managing the effects that are now unavoidable.

The GOP made its choice long ago. Do nothing whatever about the effects of climate change beyond finding a way to blame it on Red China and the Jew-Bolsheviks.
