But this isn’t legislation. It’s DOA. The conservative SCOTUS has basically said you can’t make multi hundred billion dollar changes by way of rule making. It’s a political stunt that everyone knows is going to fail. Process matters in our system, whether the under 25 set gets that or not.

I wouldn't be so sure.

I started out in a place of pure flippancy. But the US is now a net exporter of petroleum products. Red states are jumping all over wind and solar. Saudi Arabia probably hit peak oil in 2008 (they'll never tell) and MBS will cozy up to anyone who sucks his dick. Russia's using oil as a weapon against Europe, China is consuming a fuckton - there's a deep red argument for electric vehicles. And that's before Florida submerges itself, Arizona dries up and Texas manages to do both while also freezing and flooding.
