As you all may know, last Sunday thousands gathered around the white house in the biggest protest regarding climate change ever. Advocates like Bill McKibben (350.org) and Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune where there speaking up for serious response to a serious global problem. They were arrested for “failure to disperse” as they stood their ground in a peaceful protest of the Keystone XL pipe Line, but not in vain.
From Michael Brune’s Blog: Sierra Club
Last night, the president stood before Congress to say this:
… if [you] won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will. I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.
