Warren 2020

-- and try to keep the world from blowing up in the meantime.

Donald is just so amazingly wrong about everything. In addition to the well-publicized racism and sexual predation and fraud and pettiness and lunacy about things military, he's also anti-environment. While fewer and fewer people still doubt that global warming is happening or that it's caused by human activity or that it will kill us all if we don't quickly and drastically convert away from fossil fuels, Donald has called global warming a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese to sabotage American business, and his pick to head the EPA is Myron Ebell.

Myron Ebell, before becoming one of the world's leading opponents of environmental sanity, worked for Philip Morris to fight regulation of and penalties against the tobacco industry before turning his attention to supporting greenhouse gases. As an example of the latter: in 2006, in a piece he wrote for Forbe's, Ebell wrote of global warming, "the higher temperatures are killing people who are likely to die soon anyway."

Okay. Ebell hasn't actually been appointed to run the EPA yet. Donald hasn't actually become President yet. Looking ahead, #warren2020 has become a popular hashtag. Matt Vogt, @mattvogt, tweeted on Wednesday: "Don't move to Canada, move to Florida. #Warren2020". Don't move to Canada, move to Florida: thank you, Matt! That's using your head!

Elizabeth Warren in 2020. Spread the word. Nach dem Spiel ist vor dem Spiel: after the (soccer) game is before the (next) game.

Or maybe Michelle 2020, or maybe somebody else. The main thing is, do something, don't just allow yourself to lie back and become paralyzed by the horror.
