Where does this leave all of us and the planet we inhabit?  Even thinking optimistically, enacting climate-change legislation that matches the scale of the challenge is hard to imagine: the science is damning and the clock is ticking.  And while the conversation may be shifting, there’s still a climate-change-denying President in the White House and nothing like a broad consensus on a path forward among Democrats.
In the face of all that, it would be easy to dismiss the new breed of climate activists as noisy but dreamy, idealists distant from the powers who run the show.  But that’s the thing about social movements, from civil rights to gay rights.  At first the activists may look naive, and maybe they are.  But in the rearview mirror, they come to look like instigators of massive and, in hindsight, obvious change.

When in doubt tell the truth.  It will confound your enemies and astound your friends.
  —  Mark Twain
[Confound me, Mr. President.  Please…
I’m NOT really #LyingDonald’s “enemy“.   I respect the office too much and dismiss him too readily to consider #IncompetentTrump to be an “enemy” or even my enemy.  I simply oppose everything he personally represents:  greed, disregard for the rule of law, anti-intellectualism, illiteracy, authoritarianism, racism, fascism, and I resist the direction he proposes to take this country which I love…  —  KMAB]

“We are not going to rule it out or in,” Nadler tells TIME.  “If our duty is to do it, we will do it.  If it’s not, we won’t.  Impeachment is not a punishment.  It is not a political act to say we think it’s a good idea to get rid of the President.  Impeachment is a defense of the Constitution, a defense of liberty.  It’s a very blunt sword that should only be drawn if absolutely necessary.  But it may be.”
  —  Representative Jerry Nadler
From an article written by: Molly Ball (with reporting by: Alana Abramson, Brian Bennett and Philip Elliott)
The article is titled: “The Path To Impeachment
