Cindy Sheehan Gives Me Hope

Enduring fire ants and attacks from pro-Bush media and pundits who are fighting as though they have been cornered, Cindy Sheehan presses on for a second week at Bush’s Crawford ranch. She is one of the few who is brave enough to tell the truth and demand the truth from an administration that has repeatedly lied to us about The Bush War. She has stepped in where the media and Congress have failed. She is exposing the lies and not accepting the administrations party line of Bush’s War being a “noble cause.” Thank you Cindy for prodding us out of our complacency, for showing us that while the media and corporate America do control a lot of what goes on in our government, the voice of the people can rise above the talking heads. We must band together and refuse to accept their rhetoric. Cindy has given me hope that perhaps democracy isn’t dead in America:
We are here at the Crawford Peace House now. I came here so angry and I have been so encouraged and overwhelmed by the support from all over. I was thinking that there is no reason for us progressive liberals to be angry anymore. We have the power. One mom has shown that ordinary citizens can make a difference. We the people have to hold George Bush accountable. We have to make sure he answers to us. If he doesn’t have to answer to Congress, or the media, we will force him to answer to us.

Look Under Your Feet for Global Soil-utions

For several years, Chelsea Green has been publishing books that look under our feet for solutions to some of the most vexing problems facing the planet – hunger, drought, degraded farmland and grasslands, damaged waterways, and much more.

Climate Change & the End of Stationarity

Just as predicting the rise of Donald Trump as a leading presidential candidate stumped even the best of political analysts (looking at you Nate “FiveThirtyEight” Silver), the advent of the Sixth Great Extinction due to climate change and an increasingly potent mix of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has completely upended how we predict the […] Read More

Use Simple Games to Better Understand Climate Change

How is it that emissions keep growing despite rising concern about the climate change they cause? It is possible to identify several reasons for the paradox, most of which lie outside the scope of The Climate Change Playbook.
