Or vote for someone who isn’t an idiot.
All the luck to those making the effort, but it won’t make any difference. Ignorant conservatism has a long and documented history of facts not getting in the way of their belief systems, and decisions based on how they want the world to be rather than how it is.
South Florida Mayors Tell Rubio, Bush: ‘Climate Change Is Real’
by Gina-Marie Cheeseman on Friday, Jan 29th, 2016
Florida floodsThe mayors of 15 South Florida cities have a message for Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush. They want the Republican presidential candidates to see that climate change is happening and it is already affecting their home state.
Climate survivors who are private citizens is one thing. Mayors and other officials addressing the Floridian Presidential (and other) candidates is another. Unfortunately, as Upton Sinclair, another damned Socialist, wrote, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”
Honey Badger Marco Rubio doesn’t give a shit.
This is what we need to change, though.
Republican politicians used to support environmental issues all the time. Teddy R. created the national parks, Nixon created the EPA, and as recently as the late 1980s and early 1990s Republicans largely crafted the international agreements that helped stem seriously problems like pollutants responsible for acid rain and the hole in the ozone layer. This “I’m a Republican and therefore must oppose any kind of environmental regulations” thing is actually a relatively recent phenomenon.
Why are they singling out Rubio. You cannot be elected as a republican unless you deny climate change. It’s part of their tribal chant (along with “Take our country back” and “Benghazi”, etc). The fact that it snows is proof enough that climate change is a “hoax.”
Plus, what does Rubio care? When you hear him speak so glowingly about “spending eternity next to his creator”-- How could he possibly care about the flooding and ecological mess he leaves behind when he’s dead? He will be next to his creator.
Because he’s the US Senator from Florida who happens to be running for President. Theoretically he’s EXACTLY the person they should be petitioning to represent their interests at the national level.
But he’s fighting like hell to get out of Florida, he’s worked hard, went through law school, did time municipally, finally he got to the Senate but still for Florida and his shitheel constituents will even follow him to Washington as well as demand he visit Florida regularly.
That’s why he’s shooting for the moon, if he can be President he won’t have to visit Florida again ever and he can do even more work to increase emissions than he does as a Senator and before long America’s Dick will sink below the waves forever!
Why else would he chair this committee https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate_Commerce_Subcommittee_on_Oceans,_Atmosphere,_Fisheries,_and_Coast_Guard if he didn’t intend to expand the Oceans using the Atmosphere to create new Fisheries and fewer jobs at the Coast Guard? It’s all his hate on for Florida.
And I have to say, while I disagree with his methods, the only thing better that won’t visit Florida has got to be can’t visit Florida (because it dropped into the ocean)
