Democrat reveals GOOD NEWS about one of the closest races in the US
Mike Levin is gaining traction in his race against Brian Maryott for the 49th congressional district in California.
INTERVIEW: Brian interviews the Democratic congressman for one of the closest races in the country, Mike Levin, to discuss what the Inflation Reduction Act actually does for climate, his response to Shell raking in $9.5 billion in profits as the sponsor of legislation that would prevent oil companies from price gouging, and what’s next on the climate front if Democrats keep control of the House.
As Levin pointed out, one of the chief causes of the current inflation is price gauging and record high profits by the fossil fuel industry, much of which they use to bribe conservative, Republican politicians, like Levin's opponent, Maryott, who, in addition, is heavily invested in oil company stock. Of course people like that are going to oppose green energy initiatives and promote the egregious disinformation massively funded by the fossil fuel industry! Levin also pointed out that of the 17 oil refineries in California, 6 of them were inexplicably closed down by the companies themselves, not by any governmental action against them, but to further raise their prices and profits to gin up anger among the voting public against the Biden Administration whom they falsely blame for the resulting inflation.
Levin also rightly pointed out that the surest and speediest way for our nation to gain true energy independence is to become a world leader in developing and investing in green, renewable energy technologies. Failure to do so will ultimately cost us and our economy many times more than doing so. If Ajax/Hawkeye and others like them would ever take their heads out of where the sun doesn't shine and actually try to learn something, they would already know this! Like it or not, the fossil fuel industry, though it has undoubtedly, initially helped advance our civilization to where it now is, has become an albatross and a dying industry that we now need to transition away from as soon as possible.
I fully agree with this commentary by one of the other viewers of the above linked to video:
Listen to this interview and then immediately go and listen to ANY MAGA Republican running for office. The difference in messaging (and intelligence) is astounding.
No precept or claim is more suspect or more likely to be false than one that can only be supported by invoking the claim of Divine authority for it--no matter who or what claims such authority.
