    maybe get in touch with them?

    Patriot Daily is doing a blog-a-thon next month on xl pipeline/350.org. Maybe think about, just an idea, starting up a new regular weekly series here... Im partial to those myself. :-) ... for brainstorming and whathaveyou. I think they tried to do a regular news round up at one time, but I think thats too overwhelming, theres just too much news, most of it bad. Meteor Blades might have some suggestions too.

      (Yes -- I agree regarding the overdose of bad news. That's why I think good branding is so essential for environmental activism (or any activism actually).

      I really respect 350.org and other groups working on climate activism, but I think one big issue is that they're trying to motivate people with, mostly, sticks ("If we don't change our ways then look at the bad things about to happen!"). Psychologically, people need carrots just as much as sticks, and probably more.)

      Let's make 2013 the year we take back our planet.
