This is the Steve’s response to the fifth question of the debate relating to Antonio DelGado’s music career and Faso’s racist campaign ads exploiting it.
I could not be happier with this debate hosted by the news division of WAMC public radio in the Hudson Valley, and WNYT NewsChannel 13 and broadcast throughout the entire 19th Congressional District.
Delgado claims that just that limited act, only to transition our electrical power generation to renewables over the course of 17 years, is too rapid and therefore disruptive to people whose jobs are in fossil fuels. The IPCC says there are only 12 years left before major disruption becomes the norm, and 120,000 Californians are in the dark, with their food spoiling and their revenues closed down, right now, while fires that started 3 months ago still rage. But Antonio Delgado, who took a leave of absence from his $330,000 per year job with the world’s largest fossil fuel industry lobby, Akin, Gump, to move here to run for Congress as a Democrat, thinks 17 years is too disruptive a timeline for the fossil fuel industry.
This is selected cuts from the NY-19 Congressional Debate, hosted by the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce.
I’m curious why you wrote an article about debates, including ones in which it is known that I am included, without seeking a quote from me. If my name had not come up, I can almost see it, but I am the central issue in this story. Delgado and Faso are arguing over me. Why would you not contact me?
