I wonder what America's rural-and-suburban-white minority thinks is going to happen if it successfully rigs things to ensure its continued dominance. Do they think the majority will just shrug & accept it?

Young people in Oregon, who are looking forward to lives shaped by catastrophic climate change, are learning that they can advocate, organize, elect representatives, & write a bill with majority support ... and it won't matter. What will they take from that?

It's worth reading this thread from an ex-Oregon lawmaker -- good insight on the depth of support (or lack thereof) for environmental legislation in the state.
