Social media are hardly ‘social’ of course. I call them Pandora’s Box, mostly the harsh stuff gets out, made worse by a political leader who does not even pretend that he is there for the greater good of all people. With reluctance, I started using twitter as of yesterday. You’re right about the need to reach across the aisle, if we are to solve serious issues like Climate Change. But as long as people are split about this along party lines, it is best to make people aware that greening the economy will not only save billions (assuming that the old carbon economy will cause more flooding, wildfires, hurricanes and migration crises), but that the tipping point of using renewables vs fossil energy is within reach, plus it will create a lot more qualified, high-paying jobs. Stall development, and countries like China will leap passed ol’ geezer, the U.S. of A.
