At first glance, climate change and “going green” don’t seem like issues that relate to the battle playing out for our country’s soul.
But because we often look away and see the forest instead of individual trees, you quickly realize what is going on: leaders who want more government control of our businesses, economy, and personal lives can’t simply snap their fingers and get it — they need a vehicle to take them there.
I believe they think that climate change will be that scary vehicle. They can’t prove with science facts, instead of trying to convince adults who are set in their ways, they try to appeal to the feelings and instincts of minors. Part of Common Core in schools.
