We’re almost there, down to the wire with the election just two days away – intense or what? Please, please, please America, vote for the future and that means, Joe Biden!
What are your plans for Election day? The results will start coming out on Wednesday in this part of the world, and an election gathering is planned. I hope it’s a happy gathering. In 2016, I had a very sombre night with some of my pals, and I really hope it won’t be the case again this time.
The way to know who will win is to track the swing states. According to this article, the key six in play are Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won all six in 2016, so keep your eyes on those results, although some flips are looking promising.
Regardless, a small win isn’t enough this time, it requires a total blue wave, including the Senate, if we stand any chance of American government being effective in moving forward quickly with climate legislation. We need the US on board here – all of our futures depend on it!! It’s why I’m so passionate about it.
So my fingers are bleeding as I bite my nails down to the quick….. Let’s all send positive vibes to our US friends, I know they will have all of our backs.
In great news this week, my family and friends in Melbourne are free, after the longest lockdown in the world. Bravo guys. Amazing. At the time of lockdown, the UK and Melbourne had similar numbers in the high 700 range. Today, Melbourne has zero cases and the UK is close to 25,000. I believe in keeping it under control and this shows that case beautifully.
