Not incredibly graphic ... but the words are strong ... In short, making a case for it, Toles has called for the ouster of all Republicans from federal elective office. Speaking on behalf of "your planet", Toles' "public service announcement" states that Global Warming
alone is reason enough to vote against every single Republican running for National office in November.
From Toles' cartoon...
Global Warming is now a crisis facing all of us.
Well, unless you are gullible to Astroturf falseness and Oil Company propaganda, this is simply fact ... and a basis for us all to seek our ways to help improve the nation from the individual level through Sustainable Energy Action to ways to change the nation as a whole through, for example, working to Energize America.
So, 90+% of Americans have agreement ... now to the killer point ...
The Republicans in power have made it perfectly clear that they have no intention of doing anything meaningful about it in the next two years. Two years we don't have.
Oh, the money quote. This is so true. This is why Jerry McNerney, for example, is so critical a part of the Net Roots (DKos August Push) campaign to change the Congress. But, sadly, far too Americans don't associate Global Warming and American failures with the false prophets of the "Conservative" movement and its devotees, the 21st Century Republican Party.
And, too much, it is the media that is complicit in allowing the direct linkage between the Republican Party and the dire straits of the world to remain murky. In the same Washington Post, just a few weeks ago, there was an editorial that attacked Congress for attacking Global Warming science ... And, what was truly notable was how Post failed to name names re Republicans and Global Warming Denial.
Well, Toles doesn't worry about naming individuals, he legitimately indicts the entire Republican leadership.
And, speaking through the voice of "A public service announcement from your planet," Tom Toles joins all those in the reality-based community in understanding that -- despite all the other disasters (and there are many) --
This alone is reason enough to vote against every single Republican running for National office in November.
