6. I'm merely offended at the lack of federal funds to actually combat climate change

 

Despite the intended purpose of that $60 billion, it will undoubtedly increase atmospheric carbon levels and contribute to further environmental destruction (that we will be compelled to pay for because of the people it has hurt). Cannot we show an equal willingness to restore our carbon sinks, as well as shift agriculture to more sustainable models (like horticulture for instance)? FDR planted 3 billion trees to fight the ecological damage evasive agriculture caused...why can't we even think that big, when the situation is even more dire?

When it comes to solving big problems, humans excel at kicking the can down the road. Even our acts of compassion are laced with poison, as if there is any other way anymore. Its an awful situation we have got ourselves in, no doubt.
