This year, I shall not attack Democratic Candidates. However, when the behavior or a position of a Democratic candidate falls short of what I believe the party needs, I will say so with no attack intended. Joe Biden recently unveiled his climate change plan. It has two problems. First, segments of it appear to be plagiarized. Second, and far more important, the plan reflects the policies of the fossil fuel industry.

Climate disruption is real, and deadly. Unfortunately, so are the voters who believe it a hoax. Actually, it's not them I am most concerned about - it's the far greater number of voters who realize, yeah, climate change, but have no idea what it can do (not entirely their fault - they are preoccupied with little things like staying financially afloat, dealing with huge debt, supporting their familes, getting health care without going bankrupt - little things like that.) Even those of us who do realize - well, I admit my outrage has not caught up with my knowledge. I expect Joe is operating within that bubble. In reality, climate experts say that even the Green New Deal, whoch Republicans find so hysterical - that it's actually too late for it, and far more drastic measures are needed.

Maybe the RWNJelicals do have one thing right - maybe we are staring the end of the world in the face (or at least the end of the human race.) Of course, if so, it won't look anything like they think it will look like. And there for certain will not be any rapture. They will be stuck with the rest of us, dying from conditions of their own making.

Certainly I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is. But in view of climate, I'm leaning a little toward Jay Inslee.

RESIST AND PERSIST!

Like you, TC, I don't want to attack or denigrate Dem. candidates. BUT...good old Joe seems to be showing us how the world has passed him by. We need bolder and more technologically attuned candidates. Joanne says it well when she mentions that millions of us are NOT ''on top of'' the best solutions to climate disaster--I'm certainly not aware of the best possible methods. What we need is a candidate devoted to having people research and develop an innovative, effective, cost-manageable plan--not one who just recycles old data.

I was unaware of this plan too.
I feel Joe needs to be re-educated about the proper way to address the Climate Change issues.
He seems to be still living in the stone age.
Hopefully someone will make him come up with a much better plan.
Thanks TomCat

Democrats need a nominee who can kick tRump's orange ass. They need to focus on WINNING, and they will do that by promoting genuine progressives like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, not corporate-owned pseudo-Democrats. No more of this moderate crap - we need a REAL left-leaner! We need someone who contrasts with Agent Orange and appeals to voters. We need to get youth and people in marginalized communities registered and motivated to vote. We need someone who can run a real campaign, not just "I'm With Her."

Yeah, he was for the Hyde amendment, but today he did an about face. His reasoning for his switch is “it’s health care.” What, yesterday it wasn’t?

Debra, I also question the sincerity of his about face.
