      the GOP has a unified block in the elected officials and an ignorant and unimaginative following in their core supporters which makes their coalition far more pernicious to the short and long term safety, security and economic wellbeing of the United States because of their blind opposition to renewable energy.

      •  I'd say it's worse coming from our side. (4+ / 0-)

        When it comes from their side, it's par for the course.  When it comes from ours, you start getting defenders and trivializers from among our own rank-and-file.

        Same goes for wars, war crimes, etc. etc. etc.

          The bottom line is that regardless of which party any of the people who are blocking real renewable energy initiatives comes from, each and every one of them is contributing to the ultimate downfall of this country on the world stage.  If we do not adapt to the trend of fossil fuel scarcity and respond to the climate change problems to the best of our ability, we will die.  The protectionism we are seeing for the fossil fuel industry is a strategic blunder of epic proportion.  It is a disservice to the citizens of this county and future Americans.

              if we don't put our house in order, then all we have to offer is "oooooh, scaaaary Republicans!"
