I just got off the stage of the Democratic primary debate.
This is a make or break moment in our nation’s history. In 2020, we need to act on bold solutions so we can tell our kids we did what it took before we ran out of time.
We need to meet this moment with the urgency it requires. It’s not too late. But if we don’t act, it will be. By the year 2030, we will have passed the point of no return on climate; there will be another 130 million guns on the street; a college degree will cost $200,000; the average home will cost half a million dollars.
These are problems we can solve. We can do this — but only if we’re ready to walk away from what hasn’t worked and take bold action. We need to summon the courage to break with the past and focus on real, practical solutions to these problems before they overwhelm us.
