This article argues convincingly that the Green New Deal is not only going to move us in the direction of less carbon pollution, but will also make us a happier people. We must do it. The alternative is...unacceptable and would be proof that homo sapiens cannot adapt. 

We have to persuade the Dems and Reps to stop feeding us BS and get on board, because when the train leaves the station it will be too late for them and for us. Their mantra is “We can’t afford it.

Read this article and think about it. Then do something and see if you don’t feel a little better.
