  •  It's the truth. We need an Occupy-like movement (5+ / 0-)

    --though much larger--with an Army of scientists out front, to change the narrative and force the Climate Reality equivalent of "the 1%"and "the 99%"into the public consciousness. Maybe "350"ppm...? I don't know.

    Purging predominantly minority voters and requiring them to present IDs to vote in the face of VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT VOTER FRAUD is RACISM! I hereby declare all consenting Republicans RACISTS until they stand up and object to these practices!

      And Occupy the Garden.  We could get their attention monetarily, but it will take work and adaptation.

      Hm.  Occupy the Grid sounds pretty badass.  Like we're in Tron, and trailing blue energy behind us wherever we go.  :-)

      Join it if you can. They are using the techniques of nonviolence in a world-historic struggle against a grave global injustice. If I were not with a young family and insecure employment I would be there. I can't afford to get arrested though. This is the Civil Rights struggle of our time, and in some ways more profound because a segregated drinking fountain is surely to be preferred to a drought. Help them any way you can.

      •  Your comment explains why we need a coalition (0+ / 0-)

        of organizations playing different roles. People who cannot afford to be on the ground for one reason or another can still participate by various forms of other support: funding, food, supplies, logistics, PR/media relations, outreach, coalition-building, lobbying, action planning, etc.
