    These movements should be mentioned.

    Everything you listed is great. I rec'ed the diary. But this diary could have been written 10 years ago. What progress has been made? This is what we have been doing. Consider the way in which Occupy Wall Street forced a national conversation about economic injustice and wealth inequality. To avert the climate crisis we need to shift the public and the media's attention. We are in a world historic struggle against a grave global injustice. In the American history context this is up there with the revolutionaries, the abolitionists, the suffragettes, and the civil rights movement.

    The things you list are worthwhile, but they are things that lots of people have been doing for a while now. The progress is not nearly as fast as the warming. The last great natural warming was the PETM. The rate of warming was 6c/20000yrs. The current rate is 6c/200yrs. The time has come for more direct action. A fact's a fact. Blockade.

    Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
