The Shutdown, The Wall and Global Warming

Perhaps the stalemate in D.C. could be broken if we gave Trump the money to build The Wall (we’ll need it to slow the massive flow of climate change refugees in the future due to our current dithering about regarding global warming) on the condition that we, also, implement a carbon tax that could only be used to combat global warming. Of course, the politicians would find ways to divert much of the money to benefit their special interest groups; but, if we’re going to go bankrupt anyway, we should at least try to do the right thing now rather than later.
