    that we still need a million people camped on the Mall, supported by millions from the left everywhere, until we get the change we need. I am convinced that there are a million people willing and available. Many will need sponsors. But the tens of millions who can''t be there CAN help with the sponsorships... as they did with Occupy. Material support was not the problem.

    Now more than ever we need this.

    It won't stop until we end it. And if we don't end it, we won't be able to mitigate climate change and prevent the planet from frying.

    As McKibben pointed out on his recent "Do the Math" Tour: we can only put 565 gigatons more of CO2 into the atmosphere if we want to keep the temperature rise to 2 degree Celsius. Big Oil has nearly 2,800 gigatons of proven reserves on its books already, and it is spending hundreds of millions EVERY DAY looking for more. ALL OF IT will wind up in the atmosphere if we do not stop the plutocracy. And then it is GAME OVER for the planet, as James Hansen has said...

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries. -WiA "When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill..." - PhilJD
