Before giving up on the USA, try this experiment.

Find others who share your concerns. Have meetings. Vote. Go meet with your representatives, not just once or twice, but develop relationships with them. Have meetings. Plan strategy. Write letters to the editor of your local paper and to papers in your region. Write your representatives. Have meetings.

If, after five years, you aren't absolutely thrilled with the results, keep at it. It may take generations. You might not live to see the results, and it's all for your grandkids, assuming the grandkids have the time to wait.

These things did not just come out of left field. They are the result of years of hard work of such groups as the Citizens' Climate Lobby for the Climate Stewardship bill.

We're getting there. We can do it. The USA is a stand-up country when we stand up and be a stand-up country.
