We shook hands, he introduced himself, and told me he wanted to show his support.
I could barely get my question out - I wanted to honor his positivity, yet respectfully find a way to ask, “How?”
This is what he said:
“I’ve been saying for years that climate change is our most important crisis. You’re one of the only ones who‘s been willing to be decisive on it.”
I thanked him and his family from the bottom of my heart.
Don’t ever let a politician imply that working people are “less-than” or “uneducated” - aka that they are the ones in the way of solving the climate crisis.
The same folks who said Trump was impossible in 2016 are the same ones lecturing on what’s “electable” in 2020.
Don’t buy it. Vote your values.
