When big corporations thwart democracy they also thwart sustainability.
When resources are poured into unnecessary wars rather than peaceful solutions, this also drains investment from needed green infrastructure.
How corporate power, militarization are linked to the climate crisis, and how we can fight back.
I went to the Olympia Climate Action program yesterday. It was an excellent presentation/workshop. The very serious and pressing realities of climate change and peak oil were skillfully juxtaposed with the promise of creating very inpsiring, hopeful, and exciting visions for overcoming these challenges.
Olympia Climate Action has programs scheduled for the next two second Mondays, in July and August. Stay tuned, or check tcpronet, for more information.
