Unfortunately, the climate crisis is in addition to the effects of the pandemic. We see this in drought and also in your chicken wing example (freezing temps in Texas). What happens when there are massive fires and floods in areas where either products or their packaging are manufactured? … More supply chain collapse. None of this is going to go away anytime soon. Particularly because we do not see the kind of realistic & sober conversation about the climate crisis we need; the necessary public conversation with constituents about the disastrous situation we find ourselves in and its source in our economic systems and greed. If we could pull together, we could possibly make things work. Unfortunately, so many bad actors (from Murdoch to Putin to Bannon to ExxonMobile) have been & are promulgating disinformation around fear (of the virus) and or climate change (therefore promoting a weird denialism of both) that it is hard to come together as a nation. We should try to reach out and dialogue with one another, and build community where we can. IMHO. We need to get ready to be able to help and support one another. Also: vote for sanity please! This means DEMOCRATS, although clearly they are not all sane. At least they are not goose stepping like the current GQP.
