David Hochschild of the California Energy Commission urged environmental activists to look at the same-sex marriage movement to see how to effect change.
“I think there’s actually some lessons for the climate movement in what happened with marriage equality, because they framed the movement in terms of love: Government has no place to get between two people who love each other,” [Hochschild] said. “I actually think climate change is the same thing. It’s about loving the next generation, and I think that is a good way to think about it.”
Weirdo religious homophobes blame gays for hurricanes, but it turns out that queerness may well save us from global environmental disaster. Hooray!
