Things CAN get better.
As a species, we can DO it.
Imagine: We installed half a million solar panels every day last year; the Chinese installed two wind turbines every hour. Renewable energy capacity has surpassed coal worldwide!
Imagine quiet, pollution-free electric buses running off power from the sun. (Or hydro or any other electric power source, the cleaner the better.) The first 300 begin going into service in just a few months, able to do the full 18-hour work load of today’s smelly diesel buses.
Imagine Uber’s electric-powered flying cars a decade from now.
Imagine a US government without gridlock 74 days from now — a government that boosts the economy by putting people to work at good jobs revitalizing our infrastructure; that boosts consumer demand and decreases inequality by hiking the minimum wage and refinancing student loans at today’s low rates; that enacts the bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform the Senate passed 68-32 that economists agree would also boost the economy; that imposes the universal background checks even 74% of NRA members want to see.
All we have to do is vote tomorrow. Reject the relentless Republican obstruction and get the country moving again.
We can do this, people.
