The list goes on and on.

We don’t still use horse and buggies. We’re done with 8-track tapes. Let’s move on. Let’s quit blowing up mountains and blasting the ground under our feet to squeeze out oil and gas, ruining our water.
America should lead the clean energy revolution. If you vote for a climate denier, then you are complicit. Use your heads people. The clock is ticking.
Fossil fuel profits are NOT as important as life on Earth.
