After Tuesday night, my time as an election prognosticator is over.
What’s not over, though, is my continued push for an environment that is cleaner, protected and respected. It’s God’s gift to us, and all we’re doing is putting it on a path to ruination.
Although they won many offices, I remain disgusted with a GOP that turns a blind eye to fact and scientific finding for the sake of conservatism. That many of those elected disguise their anti-envionmental stance with ‘I don’t understand the science of global warming,’ it remains that it is happening, and a lot of people a whole lot smarter than them have weighed in. My hunch here – and I’m by no means a rocket scientist – is that in a few scant years voters will again have a say, and the environment will be a greater factor in a greater number of races. The Republicans can run, but they and their inept allies at Fox News won’t be able to hide.
Yeah, my itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny anti-litter campaign is the proverbial gnat on the rear end of the environmental elephant, but it is a piece nonetheless of the larger environmental story. If we don’t care for what we have now, when the time for caring passes, it will be too late to act. No amount of GOP 11th hour scientific understanding will help.
