• Capitalism and Climate Chaos

    You have to see it to believe it. A giant Carbon bubble, a polar bear and 1,000 people led by visionary writer Naomi Klein and inspired by her new book This Changes Everything, took over Wall Street for a day to demonstrate that unchecked Capitalism (at least the fossil-fueled kind) is destroying our climate.

    But it wasn't just a protest. Flood Wall Street also demonstrated some important ways that we can build a new economy - just, fair, and without pollution - by working together.

  • WE Built That

    It’s usually quite hard to render me speechless, to leave me in a state where I am of few words...yet I have only one word to describe what I experienced yesterday...WOW!!! When I interviewed Caroline Murray, Lead Organizer for the People’s Climate March, this past Thursday (Please check our website/Facebook page for extended footage of the interview soon), she indicated how happy she would be with an attendance of 100 to 150,000 marchers.

  • What stopping Fracked Gas Exports looks like

    In the last 48 hours, our movement showed up BIG TIME to stop fracked gas exports at Cove Point, and everywhere else fracking threatens. We rallied by the thousands on Sunday with Tim DeChristopher and our friends at CCAN and Berks Gas Truth to show the White House and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that we want to leave dirty gas in the ground. And then we came back to FERC on Monday Morning - refusing to leave until some of us were carted away in handcuffs.
     
    Take a look at some of the photos from the last 48 hours.
