When introducing the Green New Deal, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez told us there were "only twelve years to save the planet."
Among those voting "present" were:
- Bernie Sanders
- Cory Booker
- Kirsten Gillibrand
- Kamala Harris
- Elizabeth Warren
- Sherrod Brown
who are running for President in 2020.
We have gotten to the point that no reasonable person believes the tipping points ("12 years left"!!) nonsense any more -- which I believe is reflected in the above votes. They realize no one except extremists believes the "12 years" (and the dozens of other tipping points, see link above) anymore and the extremists do not represent enough votes to get them the nomination -- let alone elected President in the general election.
H/T: Glenn Reynolds for the title.
