Um, so those are “climate bill muscles,” by way of articulating the position that “Congress must pass a stronger climate bill than the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES),” which they wussily passed back in June. Still confused? Tell us more, Daily Kos! “If the muscle suits didn’t allude to the issue enough, each muscleman wore a t-shirt with “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” on them. The popular song by Daft Punk, later remade by Kanye West, correlated with the more specific asks of harder oversight on coal plants, better renewable portfolio standard and investments in international adaptation, faster emissions reduction targets and, more generally, stronger leadership and a stronger bill.” All of which you can understand immediately, just by looking at them, of course.
