This is like paying a drug dealer to help you stay sober…

We’re financing our own demise.

I read a copy of the Fiscal Year 2022 Budget to see how the budget for national defense compared to all the combined climate change mitigation and renewables programs. For every dollar we spend on defense, we’re only spending a nickel on the programs that would reduce our fossil fuel addiction. This is like paying a drug dealer to help you stay sober. Please wake up, America.
