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.
This message is not from me, my campaign, or any PAC supporting me. It is not from the Green Party or any PAC supporting us. This is from Republicans.
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.
The Green New Deal will go much further in covering much more of our energy consuming and energy supplying infrastructure, but this is a great first step, and nobody who opposes it should be sent to Congress. We know conservatives don’t care, so, liberals, this one is on you.
