Real Clever Issues

I'm progressive and like facts. Society. Environment. Politics. Science. Etc. I generally object to using personal attacks, but have made an exception for "Wacky and Deranged" Trump where I use the nicknames for him that he uses for others. Seems fair and fitting.

Once coronavirus is under wraps, they’ll go right back to not giving a shit about the tens of thousands of people who suffer and die in our current healthcare system.

I feel like one reason America didn’t mobilize fast enough for coronavirus is that it’s sort of invisible, there was a delay between spreading and symptoms, much of the effects are hidden from view, much of the effects were initially dismissed as “typical flu stuff”, etc. But at least there’s an actual enemy - CV - which we’re fighting against.

Climate change is the Coronavirus problem on steroids

The threat it poses is actually much greater than CV, but it’s also invisible, there’s also a delay, it also has hidden effects, it also has effects dismissed as “typical weather stuff”, and unlike CV, there’s no real enemy. The enemy is the climate. We can’t test for the climate or make a vaccine against the climate. Once that disaster really hits, we’re fucked. Quarantine’s won’t help. Even CO2 reductions at that point will be too late. We’ll just be entirely fucked.

The only way to manage it is with good policy now. And everyone’s rightfully pissed at Trump for disbanding the pandemic response team and other acts of criminal negligence. But what about climate change? Sure, Trump is obviously a buffoon there, as he is with everything. But what about US, you and me, and society? What about world leaders and the DNC? They’re all either weak, quiet, or antagonistic. Bernie is literally the only candidate pushing for the kind of early response that we need before disaster strikes, but everyone’s complaint is that it’s “too expensive.” How expensive and disastrous will it be once climate change really takes effect? Just like CV, at that point we’ll be rushing to throw money at it but it’ll be too little, too late.

We need the Green New Deal right now, as much as the US needed its pandemic response team and strategic reserve of medical supplies… and as much as we’re going to need Bernie’s Medicare For All now that 10,000,000 people have already lost their jobs.

If Biden adopted Bernie’s entire platform, 90% of his supporters would either not notice or enthusiastically embrace it.
