Super short diary - Last weekend, Bernie Sanders and several VT environmental organizations hosted a conference on climate change in Montpelier, VT.  The featured speaker was Bill McKibben.

I live-blogged it here, for those who can't view video.

For those who can do video, and would prefer not to read 19 pages of paraphrasing, here is a link to Bernie's page with the videos.

Unfortunately, dKos seems unable to embed this video format.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    As a socialist, Bernie's going to have trouble reaching a wide audience. And Bill is a sweet, smart guy with the courage of his convictions, but, like Al Gore, maybe even more so, he's not necessarily the most riveting speaker.

    I'm sure there has to be someone, but I can't think of him/her at the moment.

    As articulate, passionate, presentable people go, Naomi Klein comes to mind. And she played a cameo role in the Do the Math Tour. And she can connect the dots between the plutocracy, the shock doctrine, disaster capitalism and the Terror and Climate Wars. But she may not speak to the level of understanding or appreciation for a broad audience, either?

    Not sure who could do it. Drawing a blank.

    We need a superband to go on tour with the Climate Change message in decent-sized (2-3K) venues: part warning, part prescription. All activism.  Scientists, politicians, pundits (Moyers, Klein, Chris Hayes, etc.), comedians, Eddie Vedder, Bono, Robert Redford... all chosen for their ability to be compelling on stage.

    Mindfulness is the first necessity of sanity and survival and the first casualty of Consumer Culture.
