Here are a few highlights. I emphasized a couple of important tidbits in bold. Watch the video for Bill’s rousing speech, and to learn more about what’s planned for the coming months. The time for waiting for “someone” to act has passed. The climate is changing, farming is being altered, storm systems are increasing in size, intensity, and danger, and we are placing our children, grandchildren, and all future generations at risk. Inaction and ignorance are no longer options.
You know what, at Copenhagen we got 117 nations to sign on to that 350
target. That was good, but they were the wrong 117 nations. They were the poorest and most vulnerable nations. The most addicted nations, led by our own, weren’t yet willing to bit the bullet, so that’s where we’ve got to go to work.
On the Chamber of Commerce:
They claim to represent all American business, but they don’t. 55% of their funding came from 16 companies. They don’t have to say who those companies are, but it’s easy to tell when you watch what they do. They spend their time lobbying to make sure the planet heats up as fast it possibly can.
They sent a legal brief to the EPA last year, saying that they should take no action on climate change, because if the planet warmed, humans could alter their behavior and their physiology to deal with the problem. I don’t even really know what that means, alter your physiology. Grow gills?…
