4 Things We Need To Do To Win The Climate Fight

Okay, so we had this historic march a little over a week ago. It was …

… joyous, beautiful, exhilarating, inspiring, life-confirming … and in many ways a turning point.

But how do we now build on this? What do we do next?

Politically, we operate at two essential levels: the local and the global.

1. Local organizing is our ultimate source of power. The green movement has the great luxury of tangible targets. The King CONG corporations (Coal, Oil, Nukes, Gas) need actual land on which to do their dirty work. So we can fight them inch-by-inch, at the source.

2. But our planet as a whole is now infected with a lethal mega-virus—the global corporation, a metastasized cancer that usurps human rights but shuns human responsibilities.

3. As we work this through, there are inter-related issues we can’t avoid.

4. For each of us there’s also a deep internal dimension to this work. Being an activist is itself a great leap of faith.
