Roisin Bermingham Posted over 2 years ago Does a catastrophic event need to occur, for people to demand cleaner energy? YES this is the EXACT argument I've been lamenting over for ages!!!!!! Climate change can no longer be regarded as a political aspect only. It's about time Republicans and Democrats work together to help reverse/ prevent further damage to this lovely planet. Not only is it moral, but there are so many economic incentives. It's frustrating some people think it's a "joke" or think it will not start happening for another 100 years. you should seriously consider starting a petition on change.org and see if you can get your local or state representatives to pass sustainable bills.
