This wasn't about AOC.
This is about an idea

I know the GOP doesn't believe it's an emergency--we prove that every day under the orange maroon
you may be taking comfort in the fact you will be dead in 10-12 years.
other people may not be so lucky and left to suffer through this dystopian future

the GOP can laugh about cow farts and bristle at the thought of being vegan and just these things will make a marginal impact we need to go bigger --poking fun at it is unproductive

why not start with a concept? we need to start somewhere

DAVID WALLACE-WELLS:

Scientific breakthroughs happen in the mid-19th century, but they weren't widely known. But by 1990, when the U.N. is establishing the IPCC, the scientific community knew exactly what was going on — was advertising it at full volume — and we have not changed course at all. In fact we have done much more damage. Each of those years are the highest years of emissions on record. So things are happening really, really quickly. We're doing that damage in real time. And that has a lot of complicated lessons for how we go forward, how we think about responsibility. You know it's often the case that people believe climate change is a legacy of earlier bad behavior, and that's almost an excuse not to act now.
