The Most Reverend Blaise Cupich and the head woman of the nation’s whole damn Evironmental Protection Agency, also known as its Employment Prevention Agency, take us from clean air asthma-protection (who can object to it?) to this:
The fight against climate change isn’t a sprint — it’s a marathon. But with continued leadership and committed action from the archdiocese, from Chicago, and from congregations and communities across America, we can turn the challenge of climate change into an opportunity to build a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous future.
A month ago, Pope Francis asked, “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?”
We all know the answer, and that’s why we’re working together — faith leaders, public officials and private citizens — to make it a reality. [Italics added]
To make what a reality? Give me antecedents to match those pronouns.
And turning challenge of such and such into an opportunity? To build a cleaner, healthier, etc.? How about cleaning up the air for asthmatic children and letting it go at that?
This is such a play for national visibility as to unleash a flood of disbelief. What about flood-prevention while we’re at it?
The crafty Mundelein loved FDR and boosted the New Deal, however. There’s precedent for this, sad to say.
