Some 800,000 gallons of oil is flowing into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River, the result of a burst pipe.
Meanwhile, the Gulf of Mexico is awash in oil.
And we have no climate bill why? No argument seems to penetrate Republican skulls. What good is democracy if it creates continual deadlock? The need to move forward as one nation, one people, commits us to the very interdependence that keeps us subject to the greed of the other side.
It has to be greed, personal gain, a dedication to one’s exquisite comfort, that compels Republicans to shy away from a climate bill that would price carbon at a true and fair rate.
