This article by Liz Peek writing for The Hill leans pro-GOP, but its thesis is accurate: Joe needs a campaign theme. Here’s what it should be: ‘Turn America Green’, and as a follow-up, ‘Then the World’. Alternatively, ‘Recover from this crisis, Avert the next’. Or, how about, ‘We Saved the World for Democracy, Now let’s Save it for Humanity.’ If Joe commits to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by the end of the next decade (2040; 2030 would be a stretch too far), as JFK did on reaching the moon, he’ll turbo-charge the economic recovery, create millions of green jobs, and vault us back into world leadership. Obama made Paris possible; Biden can make it happen. The Marshall Plan rebuilt Europe, the Biden Plan (Biden-Warren?) can build the decarbonized world. Can Joe be so bold? Let’s hope so; it’s our only chance to avoid a world hostile to humanity.
