We briefly interrupt the holiday shopping season to remind you of American carbon profligacy. Buy more at Walmart and export carbon pollution to China! It’s genocide and ultimately ecocide. As we shop, people in the Philippines are dying.
Whatever good all of this buying is supposed to do for the economy, it’s time to stop the climate disruption. It’s time to buy less and to share more.
Maybe the events listed below will shed light on the question whether our corrupt political system will be able to correct itself. I doubt it, and think that the transformation of consciousness required to change everything will come from the People.
