You may have seen this by now, but if not, this is Bill McKibben and 350.org’s next move on trying to stop global warming: Yep, boils down to: let’s cut oil subsidies! I think, personally, the effort could be directed to something even more worthwhile: better support for clean energy. Oil subsidies need to
by May Boeve of 350.org Last week, one of my heroes was profiled in his local paper for helping spearhead a new Transition Town in Sonoma, California. I couldn’t be prouder, since that hero is my dad, Tim Boeve, and Sonoma is the town where I grew up. Sonoma is new to the Transition Town fold, which got its start
by Jamie Henn of 350.org BOSTON — Over 60 people dressed in referee outfits protested outside Sen. Scott Brown’s district office in Boston this afternoon to “blow the whistle” on the unseemly reality that Sen. Brown has taken over $1.9 million from fossil fuel interests since being elected and now supports moves in Congress to
Here’s an email Bill McKibben sent to US 350.org supporters who have been working on Keystone XL last night: Just in case you thought there was anything subtle about the Keystone battle, you need to hear what the president of the American Petroleum Institute — the oil industry’s #1 front group — said yesterday:
Friends, What if someone told you we should abandon all hope for global climate action until 2020? Well, that’s exactly the proposal that the United States is pushing at the UN Climate Talks taking place this week in Durban, South Africa. The 2020 delay might well be the worst idea ever. Waiting nine years for
Dear friends, What comes next? That’s the question facing people all across the country — people in the climate movement, people in the Occupy movement, and all of us here at 350.org. Fired up by the momentous victory over the Keystone XL oil pipeline, we know one thing for sure: this movement has momentum, and we
This is a must-watch, in my humble opinion. (via 350.org)
I got this on email from 350.org today (3 hours ago, Gmail tells me) and I thought it should be shared with you all. If, like me, you can’t attend the White House tar sands action planned for Sunday (November 6), there are still other ways you can help. Dear friends, I’m psyched about the
350.org has been adding dozens and dozens of posts, videos, pictures, etc. It’s worth a long scroll. But highlighting a few posts that stood out to me, here’s a video from the Philippines:
Received this a week ago from 350.org. Just got around to watching it. Worth a share. Really like the music that kicks in about halfway through it.
350.org is continuing on its campaign to expose the U.S. Chamber of Secret’s dirty, U.S.-unfriendly practices with a new campaign, website and all: The U.S. Chamber of Secrets. Yes, that would be a spoof on Harry Potter. And, yes, 350.org is comparing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to Lord Voldemort.
This year, as 350Dominicana began to plan a big bicycle mobilization for Moving Planet, they realized something — there isn’t a single bike lane in their capitol, Santo Domingo. The lack of sustainable transportation options isn’t just a challenge for cyclists, it’s also a major source of pollution. The Dominican Republic has doubled its CO2 emissions in the last 7 years and cars are the second biggest contributor.
This is an email I received from Bill McKibben of 350.org this week. Thought it was worth a full share, so here it is.
Continuing on with our continuing coverage of and commentary on 350.org’s “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn’t Speak for Me” campaign, news is that 350.org is partnering with the 10,000-strong Power Shift 2011 youth climate conference on Monday, April 18 in Washington, DC. You can reserve your spot there and keep up with news about the conference over on Facebook.
Nike, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Levi Strauss, General Electric, General Motors, Shell, and other large international companies have opposed the US Chamber of Commerce, as well as a number of local chambers of commerce.
Following up on my post this morning on 350.org’s “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn’t Speak for Me” campaign, here’s an excellent infographic 350.org put together on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Enjoy.
If you haven’t heard the news yet, two huge environmental organizations just decided to merge — 350.org, which organized what was reportedly the biggest day of global action in October (the 10/10/10 day of global action), and 1Sky, a great organization that has inspired many and accomplished much in recent years.
To be honest, they were already using the same colors, so why not merge?…
But, seriously, this is big news and I’m sure a lot of people are wondering if it’s for better or worse…
If you’re a regular reader of Planetsave, you know that I’m a fan of Kristen Farquhar’s Environmental Music Films (EMFs). And, no matter who you are, I imagine you’ve heard of the 10/10/10 Global Work Party being organized by 350.org but with a ton of support from hundreds of other organizations and thousands of people
I wrote on the possibility that the upcoming Global Work Party on 10/10/10 primarily organized by 350.org might be the biggest day of political action in the world’s history. For more on that, check out my first post on that topic (link above). I just wanted to announce here that just a handful of hours
If you weren’t informed, the International Day of Climate Action 350.org organized last year was considered by many to be the biggest day of global political action in history. There were 5248 registered events in 181 countries. CNN called it the “most widespread day of political action in the planet’s history.” A great little compilation
