New Year's Resolution!

Please Stop Following Trump's Tweets

Just stop. Really. Ignore them.

If you must, use a tweet as an opportunity to talk about real events. Trump has a 'bigger button?" Then think and discuss foreign policy, using the tweet as an example if you must, not a headline.

The too hidden realities of our changing economy in a global world are the cuts affecting our ability to deliver clean water economically; to develop a world class, safe transportation system; and to compete with reliable energy developed through US innovation and finance but produced everywhere else. So, don't take the bait. Just ignore those bright shiny tweets, and talk about the stories that matter.

And while you're at it, support real journalism at TGEink, the magazine of the Green Economy. Find out what's happening with our newsletters, and raise your voice about the policies that matter to you. Patreon: support us for the price of... whatever you want!  Newsletter: sign up now!
