I will develop a theory to help understand why Donald Trump is now President and how we can use his "playbook" to create a political movement to deal with the greatest existential crisis in human history, namely climate change, which might well include a possible 200 foot rise of sea levels within our grandchildren's lifepspan. My theory involves an understanding of how our survival as a species depended on our participation as members of a tribe with leaders, followers, and various organizations within the tribe. The job of the leaders was to define threats to the tribe and organize the means of both defence and repair if the tribe was damaged. Tribes all had warriors, intellectuals, artisans, workers and clerics needed to justify the moral actions taken by the tribes members. I will discuss why Trump has been so successful thus far and how we might be politically successful in changing the current direction being taken by the tribes now competing for power in America.
