Thank you, Ms. Ellis, for your eloquent description of the deep dangers to our democracy, not just from Donald Trump, but from those who all but worship him, no matter the consequences. Your thoughts rang true.
Trump’s dismantling of climate protections also should not be ignored. We might survive a cruel despot or two, but we simply cannot survive the consequences of this willful, continuous mendacity.
We know the impacts of 1.5-degree Fahrenheit global increase. With carbon unchecked, our greatest scientific minds warn we are headed for the insanity of four times that.
Trump’s followers did not bargain for that.
