  •  we're wasting way too much activism (2+ / 0-)

    most of those points involve media/education and political action that are directly undermined by environmental orgs continuing to ignore talk radio.

    generate the political will
    grassroots organizing to mobilize and educate the public and to demand support from our community, business, and political leaders.
    energy industry’s public relations machine and lobbyists block the path to healthy energy options and sources
    dishonest political ploy
    direct smarter public investment in energy
    educate our fellow citizens
    by far their best tool is talk radio, which works for them 24/7 and is targeted for local issues by the think tanks. the lobbyists will always have success with money but most politicians that kiss their rings have to have a constituency to enable them- to point to- on the local and national level.

    that is why our universities need to be forced out of their endorsements  of those talk radio megastations.

    until then every action or protest is getting yelled over and we don't have time for it. the major orgs and Dem party ignorance of talk radio is the biggest political blunder in history considereing the time already lost on global warming.

    deniers in political office should be rare in a real democracy. in ours they are not only acceptable they are the norm in one of our major parties. as a matter of fact it is required in the GOP lest the think tanks send the name to the talk radio gods.
    talk radio is why.

    that our universities put their logos on those soapboxes and keep RW radio viable is outrageous.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
