The current President has done everything to thwart climate change activities. For many of us this is one of the most important issues for our next President. A suggested question is:
What plans will you support to improve the climate change issues. Will you re engage in the global change agreement. If not why not.

The climate emergency is the most important issue today. On it hangs everything. It’s unbelievable they are just continuing to stick their heads in the sand and ignore it. But then again, it does appear to be what the song Hotel California seems to be describing.

When we look at the lyrics in the song “Hotel California” by the Eagles, where some dance to remember, while others dance to forget; when applied to what is currently transpiring in California, one could interpret these lyrics to mean that those who dance to remember, are those who continue with their daily lives looking back fondly on how things were better in the past, while those who dance to forget, continue with their daily actions, trying to forget how things were better in the past, when the skies were not always orange from so many fires.

Recognizing the fires as the issue, and that attempts would be made to mitigate the catastrophe at hand; the lyrics, where in their masters chambers, they stab at the beast with their steely knives, but just can’t kill the beast; could be interpreted as bringing up valid points to kill consumerism policy that is the underlying cause for the fires, but due to the love for material goods, their points of reason are ultimately unsuccessful in killing their master, (consumerism) the beast.
