This looks like another must see documentary.

"The main lesson of A Fierce Green Fire is the importance of bottom-up movements to force political action and change at the top," Kitchell, director of the Oscar-nominated Berkeley in the Sixties, told me. "Although the environmental movement put on the largest demonstration ever on the original Earth Day in 1970, it was never all that big on taking to the streets. So I’m pleased that the Sierra Club is endorsing getting arrested, and environmental organizations are forming an alliance against the Keystone XL pipeline. The time has come for nonviolent civil disobedience. This is what we need, and we need more of it."

"Climate Change as History's Deal-Breaker - Why It’s So Tough to Get Your Head Around Climate Change", by Tom Engelhardt :

"One of the cleverer approaches to climate change has been that of Bill McKibben, the man who organized 350.org. In a determined fashion, he’s been breaking the overwhelming nature of climate change down into some of its component parts that can be grasped, focused on, and organized around. Stopping the Keystone XL pipeline and encouraging students to lobby to make their schools divest from big fossil fuel companies are examples of his approach."

There's folks around here that seem to think we are incapable screwing up a natural system.

Seems to me, we're screwing up all of them.

There are many here among us who don't believe a word of it.

Perhaps the time is neigh, when our military should learn to wage peace.

They know what's about to happen.
