How NOT to be a "propaganda loser" (PART 2)

Here's how the evolution of our planet's worst nightmare could be characterized when Democrats throw off the linguistic yoke of "radical" and place it on the new Republican Klown Kar where it belongs:

1) Burn oil and coal. (Radical)
2) Put soot in air. (Radical)
3) Burn more fossil fuels. (Radical)
4) Blanket planet in a thick layer of gases which traps heat, warms oceans, stirs up hurricanes and fires... (Extremely radical).
5) OIL COMPANIES AND THE 1% (the radically over-leveredged) BUY THEIR WAY INTO SHRINKING PLANETARY SAFE ZONES.

Then the pendulum swings back to our TRADITIONAL sanity and democratic priorities:

6) THE CITIZENS WAKE UP, STOP GLUING THEIR EYES 24/7 ON THE RADICAL CLOWN PRESIDENT, AND NOTICE THAT SCIENTISTS EXIST.
7) Citizens listen to these sensible, non-radical people and pressure ALL candidates to make "addressing global warming" a high priority.
8) Citizens press further and pressure ALL candidates to link investment in clean, cheap solar energy with a return to traditional tax rates and traditional levels of investment in civic infrastructure like education, public transportation and even civic architecture.
9) Democratic candidates use the 2020 election to disentangle citizens from Republican propaganda and educate them on how sensible and even how traditional their proposals are.
10) Democrats ride a second, even larger Blue Wave to victory and immediately start to clean up America and return to a leadership role on the world stage.
11) Greenhouse gases subside. Worst outcomes avoided.

Reducing greenhouse gases is sensible, scientific and doable. Empathetic stewardship of the Earth is even a tradition in all the world's religions.

Let's stop wasting time on the Great Clown (The House, Mueller and the NY District Attorney are doing a fine job of investigating him) and begin the campaign to elect ANY of the Democratic candidates everyone of which has put forward sensible, even traditional, proposals for national renewal.

1. china produces more than twice the co2 as the us

They are the world's worst polluter, followed by India and Russia.

If we can turn it around (which is barely possible at this point) all the major polluters need to immediately slash greenhouse gas emissions.

Not only is that highly unlikely, but China and India are both in the business of building coal fired power plants, last I heard they have 650 plants planned in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, who are in the top ten polluting countries already.

Eta I read your first post and you make a really good point about how issues are framed.

2. most od the paths forward on climate are sensible things that we should

be doing anyway.

conserving, efficiency, recycling, being neighborly when dumping trash or industrial waste. what kind of person finds these things to be radical, socialist, or un american?

3. All those labels like "libtard" and "radical" are Putin troll creations.

But we ARE in a propaganda war with Putin and his Republican ebablers. Thus we must fire 🔥 back with talking points like I've proposed leading the way.

Pin "Radical" and "deeply misinformed" on Trump and the Republicans (and refrain from doing it to Democrats)
