On the night before Earth Day 2013, all over the US people are sitting down to watch the movie, Do The Math, a celebration of Bill McKibben’s climate tour last year and of the growing movement for climate sanity.
Seeing this film will give you new hope that people power can indeed accomplish the improbable in our struggle with Big Oil Money. If people power could abolish an institution as ingrained as slavery, or a prejudice as deep as apartheid, or a social injustice as pervasive as the war on women, we can do this too.
Please invite your friends and attend a screening somewhere near you. You can locate your nearest location here.
Bill’s 2012 Do The Math tour, and the article of the same title he published in Rolling Stone Magazine started a serious and successful campaign to get educational insitutions divested from fossil fuels. Read about that here.
Since then, he has written another inspiring article, The Fossil Fuel Resistance, which you can read here.
And the US State Department is open for comments on its flawed environmental impact report on the Keystone XL Pipeline until April 22nd. So please send in your comments today. You can read about it and take action at this website: http://act.350.org/letter/a_million_strong_against_keystone/
We are bigger than Fossil Fuels.
