Leaving Our Dystopian World Behind

After four years of swimming in the Trumpian sewer we have a chance to crawl back into the sunshine, clean all the muck off, change clothes and begin to move forward. If, that is, we are lucky enough to leave the psychopathic Republican Party and Mr. Trump swilling in their nightmare dystopian world come this November.

Here is a welcome sign that we once again can have a future rather than a worldwide neo-holocaust.

“US Democratic presidential candidate – and emerging favourite – Joe Biden has rolled out successive announcement outlining his commitment to clean energy investment in the US, both in the name of jobs and trying to tackle climate change.”

“Last week, Biden presented a blueprint for renewable energy success from the “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force” which calls for the installation of 500 million solar panels within five years and the elimination of carbon pollution from power plants by 2035.”

“That plan has been swiftly backed up this week by the official unveiling of Biden’s climate policy, which proposes to spend $2 trillion over four years to significantly escalate the use of clean energy in the transportation, electricity and building sectors.”

“These are the most critical investments we can make for the long-term health and vitality of both the American economy and the physical health and safety of the American people,” Biden said at the policy launch.

“When Donald Trump thinks about climate change, the only word he can muster is ‘hoax.’ When I think about climate change, the word I think of is ‘jobs.’”
