Not presidential though, it’s climate.Â What once was touted as a concern for humanity has now officially been polarized by the Republicrats as a way to sell books and get some “look at me” time.Â Â Jeremy JacobsÂ has the full story.
I couldn’t help but be amused by this:
â€œAs a father, when someone tells me that within the next decade, if we don’t deal with global warming, our children and grandchildren may deal with global catastrophe, that tells me I damn well better do whatever I can to help make Washington deal with this responsibly,â€ Kerry added.

“People all over the world, we need to solve the climate crisis. It’s not a political issue. It’s a moral issue,” Gore said.
