A basic assumption of those seeking the Republican nomination is that pollution or global warming is an American issue and there is no need to examine whether or not this thing is occurring in other parts of the world. If one simply ignores the issue elsewhere then we here in America can continue doing whatever we do. Believe it or not, as Pope Francis notes, we are ALL guardians of this planet.The India National Health Profile indicates that at least 3.5 MILLION people in this country are suffering from acute respiratory infection and that thousands will die.
Naturally, this pitch about pollution does not resonate with Republican voters in the good state of Iowa. The concept of ‘connection’ is one lost on the clowns who seek the presidency. If any health problem is happening in the world, it is occurring thousands of miles from Wisconsin so, who cares? Of course, incredible fires in California, yes, California IS part of the US, occur partly due to global warming. But,then again, California will vote for Democrats, so who cares?
At age 85, I do not recall any such narrow minded candidates seeking the presidency.
