As an an independent who voted for the democrats in the last two elections, I’m voting for Trump this time. But I’m still appalled at the republicans refusal to admit that fossil fuels add to global warming. If most of the scientists said those fuels have nothing to do with climate change then I’d be on the republicans side. But the scientists say just the opposite. A history program showed a clip of former vice president and republican, Dick Cheney, saying he believes we are in the midst of global warming: “I call it Spring.” Then the audience laughed and he smirked, apparently proud of himself for being cute. I thought it was tragic. How arrogant many republicans without scientific backgrounds are to believe they know more than the scientists. If the democrats thought like that, I’d say the same thing about them.
Cheney thought he looked so cool with that little quip of his. But fifty to a hundred years from now, when fossil fuels are a thing of the past, people living in than greener age will look at that old clip and compare it to the age of the dinosaurs. They’ll probably say, “Can you believe a former vice president, someone who is supposed to be a world leader, said that? Can you believe the republican party way back then supported that prehistoric idea?”
