David Roberts on the problem with Democrats

The Evidence Squared Podcast invites on Vox’s David Roberts to talk about how to talk about climate change with a conservative. But the really good exchange takes place when the subject turns to the Democratic Party.  When Americans with a brain hear Democratic leaders talking about climate change:

“They hear the words, and they sound a little hollow because there’s no sense of urgency.”

Exactly. Democrats say they care about the climate, but never act like they believe it’s important enough to actually do anything.

By the way, Roberts is not just one the best climate journalists working today, but he’s one of the most astute observers of American politics.
