An occasional series by one guy who thinks he might know how the Democrats can win back Georgia.
Republican Talking Point: Environmentalists are wackos who care more about trees than humans.
Talking about the environment is talking to the shrimp boat captain in Darien who understands runoff from an overdeveloped Altamaha will make the waters off Sapelo a desert.
Talking about the environment is talking to the hunter in Dawson who understands warmer winters means the rut now comes too late for deer season.
Talking about the environment is talking to the farmer in Camillia who understands his shrinking irrigation pond is tragic but continuing pollution of the Chattahoochee will make future demands of Atlanta on his watershed catastrophic.
Georgians understand that talking about the environment is not about preserving an owl you've never seen. It's not about preserving a fish no one ever catches. It's about preserving the way of life of your grandparents. It's about preserving a way of life for your grandsons and granddaughters.
