We need a Green New Deal. We need a revolutionary change in our energy policy away from fossil fuels.

I’m looking at your profile picture. You look like you are at least 40, maybe close to 50. Life expectancy for males in the U.S. on average is 78.

You’ll probably survive to see the new normal of climate disruption after 2028 or 2030.

But think of the younger generations who will never know the planet like we did. I don’t think we need to worry about competing against Russia’s expanding fossil fuel industry. Instead, we should be using our leverage to force Russia to move to a clean energy system.
