Final thoughts on the People’s Climate March …

All I know for sure is that I’m beat from the sun and heat – pretty apt for a march largely focused on global warming. How many thousands of marchers? Beats me. But my group of North Carolinians didn’t budge for one hour after the march started.

But there are one helluva lot of people who care deeply about the topic. They are avid, rabid even, about climate change. There was no talk overheard in sports or healthcare or anything else.

I do think Trump is a nitwit on this. In fact, the debate has convinced me he’s not a very good businessman. I say that because he’s not adaptive to business opportunities. As with Atlantic City and Trump University, et al (failures) he doesn’t acknowledge where new non-fossil fuel jobs will come from. Already – right now – the renewables sector has almost three times the jobs of a coal industry on its way out. But still, Trump does not sense the writing on the business wall. That’s a shortcoming to me.

But we will let that go for now. I’m focused on re-hydration – and trying to figure out how to be a better renewable energy advocate.

About Dave Bradley (260 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
