The emcee here just said, “Don’t talk to me about choosing between jobs or the environment. It’s jobs for the environment.”
Yes, but will the environment be paid a living wage? It’s time to organize, methinks. Rocks, dirt and trees, should all start voting for the big Ds.
He’s also quoting JFK’s famous speech–“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard”–to press for a new energy independence “Apollo Program.” But hard like what? Hard like going to see the new Al Gore movie? Or hard like bringing democracy to a totalitarian society? I think we’re starting to recognize our limits.
