Sen. Bernie Sanders, who owns three homes and spent $300,000 on private jets for a nine-day cross-country campaign swing, does a lot of talking about climate change; in fact, he’s compared it to war, saying we need to fight it “as if it were a devastating military attack against the United States and the entire planet.”
So good luck to 2020 hopeful Gov. Jay Inslee, who so far has made climate change the centerpiece of his campaign. We have a couple of polls that might interest him. The first is that recent Des Moines Register poll where he managed to capture one vote out of 400 people polled, and this one posted recently by David Axelrod:
In new Pew Poll, climate change falls to the bottom of concerns voters believe @realDonaldTrump and Congress should focus on in 2019.
It may be the greatest gap between public sentiment and the catastrophic stakes of inaction we’ve seen since the isolationism of the 1930s. pic.twitter.com/jGqtqg0Z85

So, please, Democrats, be like Inslee and go all-in on climate change in 2020.

“There is only one salvation.”
"Salvation". This is a religious cult.

Yup…climate change is the new religion of the progressive left-wing

Tell me again it's not a religion…

It really is true: Progressivism is just a Christian heresy.

This is something a cultist would say.

Defeat climate change!? Really? Do you have any idea how stupid that comment is. Ice ages, continental glaciation, medieval warm period, The forces of natures are immense and we are puny.

So we are going to declare war on China, India and Russia- some of the biggest polluters on the planet? I’ll notify the 101st and 82nd Airborne units.

Is he some relation of Romney? Why do these people all look and act alike? Thank God for President Trump.

Inslee is an idiot.
— Clyde Boyd (@CABO92399) March 12, 2019
It’ll be fun to see Inslee on the debate stage with 48 other candidates all trying to outdo each other on climate change hysteria.
‘Nuke the sun’! Bernie Sanders says nation needs to pretend climate change is a ‘military attack against the’ planet (and people have thoughts) https://t.co/J0uyJa1Aw7
