Imagine a world with clean, abundant, affordable energy. One where climate disruption is a fading threat and American soldiers are never again deployed to defend oil fields. One where innovative green industries provide good jobs and supply 100 percent of our energy needs. Imagine a healthier America, with clean air and water, with pristine coasts and protected natural areas. A wealthier, more productive nation, whose leaders answer only to the citizens who elect them. This is America beyond oil.
Now grab something alcoholically very potent and read about why the “Earth may be near tipping point” and how we now know why the GOP insists that there’s no climate change.
Why isn’t America getting this yet? Rhetorical.
