On Climate Change, "Younger Republicans Are More Likely To Side With ... Bernie Sanders"

I have yet to find a more insightful capsulization of the inevitable (political and environmental) collapse caused by the climate denial of so many elected officials.

It's a lovely bonus that this same column reinforces the reason that Bernie continues to thrive and has been endorsed by 3 members of The Squad.


Republicans Have A Climate Change Problem

The literal end of the world as we know it is going to affect each and every one of us whether we believe it is happening or not. This is a fact that transcends political partisanship amongst the generations who must live with the immense failure of our parents and grandparents. Older Republicans essentially adopt the position that climate change does not exist and it is not something to be concerned about, while younger Republicans are more likely to side with the aggressive vision of Bernie Sanders than the know-nothing denialist vision of their elders.

2. This is great news for Bernie! AND he is motivating and signing up the youth vote!

I'm always a bit amused to hear in MSM how Sanders supported candidates didn't win over the house in 2018, yet these pundits fail to emphasize the engagement of young voters in that election. And we know who, of all the candidates, appeals to young voters.
I can't put my finger on it now, but the under 40 crowd will be the largest voting block in 2020. Yes, traditionally it has skewed 50+ but that was before all the new reports on the climate Crisis finally broke through the news barrier.
Bernie has the best young surrogates. And kick ass activist celebs on his side.
There is an awakening going on!

3. I Concur - On The Subject Of Surrogates, Did You See That AOC Outraised All House Dems In Q3?

That's yuge news. Some predicted that her work against the Amazon HQ2 initiative would hurt her (as would endorsing Bernie). Oh, please!
