“… While we have lost friends in Congress, we are gaining them in the streets …”
Eric Worrall writes: The President of the Sierra Club is confident of widespread and growing public support for the environmental movement, explaining apparent setbacks for the green movement, in the recent US midterm elections, as a conspiracy of corporate interests and bolstered by sinister voter suppression tactics.
According to Michael Brune, president of the Sierra Club;
“Despite the climate movement’s significant investments and an unprecedented get-out-the-vote program, strong voices for climate action were defeated, and candidates paid for by corporate interests and bolstered by sinister voter suppression tactics won the day.
This election marked a pivotal change in how candidates confront the climate crisis, We’re not backing down.
Public support is solidly behind action to tackle the climate crisis. While we have lost friends in Congress, we are gaining them in the streets, as our movement grows stronger and broader”
What can I say – I hope you receive the help and counselling you may in my opinion need Mr. Brune. Coping with rejection and loss can be deeply traumatic. Regardless of our political differences, I have no wish to see you suffer undue emotional pain, during this potentially difficult period of personal adjustment.
