DC CLIMATE STRIKE – SHUT DOWN BUSINESS-AS-USUAL

Youth leaders from around the world have called for a climate strike and global week of action from September 20th-27th. They have been taking the lead so far, but now they are calling on all of us to take action. In Washington, DC we will be answering the call and building on the momentum of the youth climate strikes in a major way:

On September 23rd, we are going to shut down DC.

We will block key infrastructure to stop business-as-usual, bringing the whole city to a gridlocked standstill. Parents, workers, college students, and everyone who is concerned about the climate crisis will skip work and school and put off their other responsibilities to take action on the climate crisis.

A few years ago, I made a decision that I was going to focus on ending wars. That still is my focus, but I now have made a tactical change that I will take whatever victories I can get. If the momentum is there for obstructing climate change (i.e. global heating, drying and dying) then I am all for it. Let's just not forget that war is the number one cause of climate change and as the video says, will be a result of climate change. Let's shut it all down. The people have the power if they will only use it.

P.S. Since I just heard about this from Jimmy Dore, I had to do some double checking to make sure this was not an old video, and that it was not a prank. I did fall for one once before " Maj. Tulsi Gabbard receives surprise deployment orders to Antarctica---lol.

P.S.S. If you try to Google "shut down dc" you won't find it, and if you do, Google will give you a warning that it is a "unsafe website".

I can't get around the issue that there are no solitions. Whatever we call civilization is 100% based on petroleum--the most valuable form of solar energy ever. And that our national energy policy is to blow that out our tailpipes, asap.

We should continue our Ghost Dances to feel better, but they may as well be against gravity, entropy, or the rising and setting of the sun.

Meanwhile appreciate what is left of nature, as this bio major has been advocating for for 64 years (72 - 8, aka my earliest recollections of the issue). dg
