The THING IS, you see, all those torture memo's, abortions, and republicans

aint a goddamned ONE of them going to amount to one DOT on anyone's radar in 20 years if we don't get a handle on climate change NOW. It is not ABOUT cutting down on coal and petroleum emissions, it is ABOUT CUTTING OUT ALL USE OF THE ELEMENTS THAT ARE KILLING OUR PLANET. Corporate profits will buy you ZIP if you are up to your knees in sea water.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT A STATE OF MIND OR SOMETHING THAT CAN OR SHOULD BE DEBATED. IT IS REAL, AND IT IS NOW. IF WE DO NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY, RIGHT NOW, WE ARE CERTAINLY DOOMED.


This week, we released a joint statement with Greenpeace and Public Citizen to express our concern about disturbing changes to the new climate bill currently being discussed in Congress. While we don't have the bill in our hands yet, we have heard that there have been various compromises made that weaken the bill. One, the targets we must reach to avoid climate chaos have been weakened considerably and two, more and more handouts are going to Big Oil and Big Coal.

If it's as bad as we think, we'll need you to help us by telling your member of Congress you demand better from them -- that you want them to stand up to Big Oil and Big Coal and do what's needed to solve this crisis. Read more...

I want my president to LEAD, and my country to SHOW THE WAY out of this seemingly irreversable conundrum of global climate change. CLIMATE IS EVERYTHING, is not understating it one bit.

WE ARE CLEVER, INTELLIGENT, AND THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO BUILD THINGS. LET'S DO IT. GET SMART, AND GET BUSY, AMERICA!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
