Election ponderings

With the election fast approaching, I am puzzled that economic issues continue to be the priority and dominate the headlines rather than environmental matters. IF what we are being told is true regarding the state of this planet, vital resources and humanity’s future, then it seems to be a form of insanity not to make them a priority.
