When you didn’t mean to be this truthful…but just couldn’t help yourself.
The Sacramento Bee reports that California Governor Jerry Brown was at the Vatican recently to address religious leaders (huh?), and spoke on the matter of that obviously compelling spiritual topic known as climate change.
Even better than the fact Brown was there at all…is what he had to say about changing the attitudes of rest of the world – and, more specifically, of world leaders – toward the subject of climate change.
Obviously frustrated that much of the globe still does not see the problem as he and so many other progressives do, Brown suggested – out loud – a surefire way to be sure everyone climbs on board the climate change express.
“The problem … is us,” said Brown. “It’s our whole way of life. It’s our comfort … It’s the greed. It’s the indulgence. It’s the pattern. And it’s the inertia.”
“At the highest circles, people still don’t get it,” the governor continued. “It’s not just a light rinse” that’s required. “We need a total, I might say ‘brain washing.’”
We can all readily agree, Governor Brown, that in order to get large segments of the population to agree with you on the matter of climate change, it’s going to take a great deal of……what was it you said?...brainwashing?
Yes, absolutely. 100 percent correct.
