How to Confront Harassment in the Age of Trump
January 19, 2017
Why post this on a climate blog?
Because I’ve been saying that climate denial and racism are fundamentally linked for years, and the Republican Party just proved it to the world.
Because we are going to have to confront ignorance in all its forms, which has been licensed and emboldened by the narcissistic, bullying, racist, misogynist, Climate Denier in Chief.
And because, having spent a few moments hugging a friend, a soft spoken, hard working, professional who I’ve watched struggle to earn respect, and an American masters degree, who had garbage dumped on her driveway after the election, for no other reason than that she was from Zimbabwe, I can’t wait, I really. really. can’t. wait. to confront one of these.
I promise to be polite.
