Partisan for Earth Ethics

Taking the ecological crisis seriously and pressing for action IS indeed “partisan”. But it’s not “Partisan Democrat” or “Partisan Republican” as we automatically assume “partisan” to mean. But it is “Partisan to life”. It is being advocates for the kind of politics that seeks first and foremost to preserve life, and to do that so that it honors and enables Continue Reading

Democrat leadership doesn’t think Climate Crisis belongs “on stage”

“If you are a major 2020 candidate and you say you have to skip either the CNN or MSNBC climate forums because you’re “too busy,” I would argue that you most likely don’t grasp the scale, scope, or importance of the climate threat” — @EmilyAtkin on Twitterhttps://twitter.com/emorwee/status/1163785007925739521 Far too many churches—especially those partial to the Religious Right, simply ignore it Continue Reading

“Redoing our economic system” : YES, that should be the least of our worries

Blocked: People who say #GreenNewDeal has nothing to do with Climate Change and simply wants to “redo” our economic system and “change to socialism”. Such inanity and cluelessness is useless and a waste of time.(Unless I want to talk about the inter-locking relationships of nearly everything, but the “it’s all socialism” and “that’s all bad” is what is blind, oblivious ideology)
