It Is Time For A Reckoning On ‘Climate Change’ This Thanksgiving Or Something

When it comes to the typical climate change and Thanksgiving articles, most run the gamut of we’re doomed, we should talk to our drunk, racist, horrible uncle about it, here’s how to ruin Thanksgiving by yammering about ‘climate change’, and ones about how all our food will be destroyed sometime in the future. Then you get the ones that take it up to a Category 5 hurricane

This Thanksgiving, a reckoning on climate

I find it impossible to set aside the looming uncertainty of climate change, even as we prepare to gather and give thanks.

Over the past few days, especially, we’ve been confronted with tangible reminders of both the good and bad paths we could be heading down as a country and as a planet.

First, this year’s Thanksgiving holiday takes place amid a tragic background: The Camp Fire has become one of the worst American disasters of the 21st century. More than 75 people have died and hundreds are still missing.

(couple paragraphs on the wildfire, without showing proof that it was anthropogenic. Actually, it was, due to downed power lines)

Climate change demands so much of us: The world is changing so quickly that climate scientists are giving self-care tips. But there is also an emerging portrait of a resilient world that is taking shape.

Our new Congress is going to have some of the strongest, most progressive voicesfor climate change in our country’s history. There are fresh faces advancing bold policies like a Green New Deal, and Senator Bernie Sanders has announced a forthcoming town hall meeting on climate change that’s sure to gather even more steam for the movement.

As we head home to reconnect with loved ones, remember that we all have a role to play in steering our society toward that better future. And it starts by being honest about where we are and the choices we have to make as soon as possible. Sara Peach has an excellent six-step guide to compassionate climate conversations — well suited for Thanksgiving dinner, in my opinion.

This transitional moment in our history brings opportunity amid the loss. It’s not only the end of something (civilization as we knew it); it feels like the beginning of something better.

Thank goodness, we can fix this all with a tax. Because that’s what the House Democrats will push. And more restrictions on the lives of citizens. Wildfires have always happened, and pretty much always will. So do natural disasters.The Cult of Climastrology will continue to link them to their cultish beliefs. That’s what they do.

Thankfully, the people I spend Thanksgiving with have other interests than yammering about this garbage. Can’t we just spend a day together in enjoyment?

    This sounds like a great way to get unceremoniously tossed out on your ass……. Start talking shit at my Thanksgiving dinner, and you’ll soon find yourself sitting on the curb outside….

    Although folks who believed the right-wing talking points didn’t trust the scientists, they’re beginning to trust their eyes.

  3. Jethro says:

    The concept of “Thanksgiving conversations” has become a meme representing any political/religious discussion where there are likely to be differing viewpoints. So don’t worry about Thanksgiving dinner.

    It’s been our experience that most of these emotionally charged interactions originate from someone’s offhand, snide comment – Trump’s a crook; It’s snowing, so where’s the warming?; the liberals want open borders; Repubs are kidnaping babies; Mrs. Obama was once a man etc. So just knock it off at dinner.

      No, it just resulted in the Lefties’ being banned from family gatherings. Jeffery and all his imaginary friends.

      Real Americans have been sick of the lies for 50 years.
