    It appears you are willing to jump to the same conclusion as the author of the article you linked.

    Pardon me for intruding, but the actual thoughts people have expressed to me is that re-electing t means there will be no serious effort to "save the planet", although I don't know anyone who uses those particular words unless they are foolishly trying to exaggerate rather than have a serious discussion.

    The planet will still be here with or without re-election, and life on the planet will be much different from what it is today with or without re-election - the question is a matter of degree and whether there will be an intelligent response to the situation.

    The UN Official said this --

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

    "Destroying capitalism" isn't in there - that's the inference made by the author and apparently swallowed whole by our friendly local plumber.

    We have made many intentional major changes to our economic model in the past, such as when TR and friends broke up the monopolistic industrial trusts, or when we insisted that industries make an effort to return our air and water back in a usable state when they were done using it, or when we demanded that auto makers provide safer, more efficient products even when they were making billions selling the same old cheap dangerous gas-hog garbage.

    You have to wonder why these anti-education and anti-knowledge folks, who hate experts, are so scared.
