First step to saving the planet: Fix democracy
Whether on the left or the right, there is an endless list of critical problems that each side believes important. The Reagan right wants less government and a simpler tax system. The progressive left wants better healthcare and a stop to global warming. Each side views these issues as critical, either to the nation (the right) or to the globe (the left). But what both sides must come to see is that the reform of neither is possible until we solve our first problem first--the dependency of the Fundraising Congress.
I've decide in some ways the greatest environmental problem we have right now is a political problem. The vast majority of Americans want a healthy environment for their children and clean sources of energy to power a prosperous economy. But how will it ever be possible to pass a bill that ensures such goals, when the big polluters are also the biggest political fundraisers on Capitol Hill.
