Public must take over climate change debate

OlympiaFebruary 25, 2014 

Regarding Climate Change: We, the human race, no longer have the time to indulge the ignorant and the greedy. The energy companies, frightened of any change that will lessen their incredible power over our society, have successfully quashed any functional debate over the best response to climate change.

By purchasing the Republican Party and the Fox News channel, with their insane profits, they have managed to neutralize our state and federal lawmakers. This manipulation of our political system and our media is a terrible crime. Obviously our politicians have been bought off. Now it is up to us, the people, to kick some a_ _ and to get things moving, for ourselves, but more importantly for our children and grandchildren. Now it is up to us.
