Think of HR 763 aschemo for the planet

Years ago, when we were adopting our children, our social worker had one main theme: Don’t let the urgent crowd out the important. Excellent advice, but hard to keep!

I think of it often as our nation pin-balls from crisis to crisis — immigration, wildfires, health care, floods, shootings. … We focus on each new emergency for a few days before it is crowded out by another.

Meanwhile, global warming continues unabated and will make every one of these problems much, much worse.

Just as a cancer patient cannot forego chemo to deal with, say, pneumonia, we simply must lower CO2 emissions in spite of our many other urgencies.
