Any thoughts on what to do for the next 70 days?

I am compelled to voice my concern that the Climate movement NOT wait to seriously mobilize until that March on April 29. We need to act after the shameful, irresponsible “hurry vote” of the sellouts of the GOP (excepting ONE, Susan Collins, apparently the only non-denier amongst those gutless turds called the GOP). I admit that I am not one Continue Reading

Occupy the Pruitt EPA

Occupy the Pruitt-led EPA.  The head of National Security violates basic National Security protocol. He’s now gone. The appointed head of the Dept of Education is an opponent of public education. Now the EPA head is an opponent of Environmental Protection and an insane, science denying idiot with no scruples about enriching himself at the peril of what he is Continue Reading

The nationality of a Kingdom apart

Seeing a confederate flag in a picture, and reading of how “it’s not racist, but a symbol of ‘States Rights’”, I wonder what the symbol for “ecological destruction” rebranded as “Free market rights” would be. Capitalism? What’s the “flag”? Some might argue the stars and stripes itself. Then we’d be into the heart of the matter, I suppose. Where do Continue Reading

What vehicle do we need to make it through?

Ever since I read Ta Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me”, I am still struck by the closing section, and this , within that, stands out : “The people who could author the mechanized death of our ghettos, the mass rape of our private prisons, then engineer their own forgetting, must inevitably plunder much more. This is not a Continue Reading

Fossil Fuel Green Light

And in this case,  “Green” is NOT good, if you know what I mean. I agree very much with Jeremy. This whole post of his (also copied and pasted below)  is a sweeping condemnation of not only Trump’s conflicts of interest and illegal profit-driven scheme of his to cash in on the Presidency at the expense of the American people, but Continue Reading

The Task Ahead Has Just Gotten Much Harder

In September of 2014, while reading Naomi Klein’s “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate”, I crossed into a life-changing re-focusing of my vocation of trying to help the Church be the Church and provide Communication and Online Community tools, to sharpening and focusing those tools on the task we face in a Climate Crisis. Now, just over two years Continue Reading

Trump is now a required dogma/litmus test for some

It seems that even many of those Republicans who didn’t vote for him are largely inclined to be disengaged from all this; even opposing the value of the Women’s march in the first place. As if “protest” itself is just a tool of the “liberal” or “radical” (whatever either of those titles entail for them). Seems they even defend Trump Continue Reading
