It just occurred to me why the GOP is spending all their time, effort, and political capital on the idea that we need to stake our environment’s future on short-term jobs in the fossil fuel industries.
They expect most of their supporters to die in the next 20 years anyway.
That makes a little bit more sense than my previous assumption that their base simply expects Teh Rapture to happen any day now.
But not much.
We live in exciting times.
