Welcome to a discussion about the upcoming 5th Revolution in the US, which I’ve titled the “Revenge Revolution.” For more about the Revenge Revolution and the author, Entry #1 Periodically I write a “sense check” to assess whether a revolution in the US is possible or whether the entire exercise is based on a statistical aberration — i.e., a roughly 50-year cycle between major upheavals in the US. Entry #430 was the most recent “sense check.”

BEGIN ENTRY #458 — The US Senate voted to approve legislation that will take a major step toward addressing CO2 emissions and climate change. The effort will help the US reduce overall GHG emissions about 40% from 2005 levels. While additional steps will be necessary to achieve a zero-emission economy by 2050, the legislation is a major step forward. 

How many Republicans in the Senate voted for the legislation aimed at avoiding a climate catastrophe? Wanna guess? Start at zero and count no more.

By voting “no,” what Republican Senators are saying to their children, and especially grandchildren, “Yes, I hate you. I want you to ruin your lives and want you to die early. Now, aren’t you happy with grandpa/grandma?’

Apparently what matters to Republicans in the Senate, is not family, is not country, is not duty to uphold the constitution. What matters to Senators is allegiance to the Republican Party and its de facto leader, the Donald.

If you don’t think Republicans believe allegiance to party is more important than commitment to family and mankind, then why vote against the climate change legislation? In addition to addressing climate change, the legislation helps reduce drug prices and cuts the deficit. Republicans, what do you want in the legislation?

Obviously, Republicans don’t know what they want. To help provide some guidance, during the August recess go home and ask your kids and especially your grandkids if they would rather live in a world that’s reasonably unpleasant or a world in which there are even more droughts, floods, fires and record-setting temperatures? I suspect they’ll provide some guidance to you. Then, make an appointment with a proctologist and get yur head repositioned properly on our body. END #458
