Dear Jon Huntsman,

You were the only Republican candidate to stand up for a truth that will have an immeasurable impact on every generation of humans from now until the earth crashes into the sun and the universe forgets what love even was.

When you cravenly reversed yourself on climate change, you broke my heart. Sure, it was the only way to make yourself look even a little like a viable Republican candidate, but Jon, do you really want to be a Heather? Did what we shared mean nothing to you?

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

Have fun explaining to your grandchildren that they have to fight in the resource wars because Pappy wouldn’t stand on principle, you cheap bastard.

Very sincerely,
C. Mims
