How a 3-Minute Film Is Making a Long-Term Difference on Climate Change

climate conferenceThis is the story of how a three-minute film watched by over 120 world leaders at the United Nations this morning was produced by a newly empty nested mother of three who had never produced a minute of film before.

It began 26 years ago when my friend, Cindy Horn, and I were pregnant with our first born and concerned about what the scientific community was telling us about the man-made threat to the planet that was soon to welcome our innocent babies.

After historic climate march, protesters flood Wall Street

Flood Wall StreetSeveral dozen protesters have been arrested in New York City’s financial district, after they occupied the corner of Wall Street and Broadway to protest what they say is finance capital’s role in perpetuating climate change. The arrests capped an 11-hour march and protest – an event billed as “Flood Wall Street” – in the heart of the world’s financial capital. Organizers claim that the rally included 3,000 people at its peak.

The protest, which took place on Monday, was a smaller companion piece to the People’s Climate March, which had occurred the day before. That march was by far the single largest environmental rally in history, drawing an estimated 310,000 people from all over the world, according to organizers. Police did not confirm or deny the turnout. Whereas that march was designed to appeal to the broadest slice of potential supporters possible, Flood Wall Street is more overtly radical in both its rhetoric and tactics.

Do You Really Want to Save the Earth? After the Climate March, Flood Wall Street!

Wall StreetWall Street is, in a very real sense, the epicenter of our environmental crisis. To ignore that fact is to risk dooming our other climate efforts to failure, or to use them merely as palliatives for troubled consciences. There's no other way to say this: Capitalism, as practiced on Wall Street today, is an existential threat to humanity.

To make that statement is not necessarily to issue a jeremiad against capitalism in all its forms. The danger comes not from commerce itself, but from the extraordinary concentration of wealth and power that has accrued in recent decades to corporations and their Wall Street investors. This has led in turn to an ideological shift that has entirely captured the GOP and has seized large portions of the Democratic Party as well.

De Blasio Orders a Greener City, Setting Goals for Energy Efficiency of Buildings

De BlasioIn a sweeping effort to reduce its environmental impact, New York City is planning to overhaul the energy-efficiency standards of all its public buildings and to pressure private landlords to make similar improvements.

The initiative is part of a pledge, to be announced before the start of the United Nations Climate Summit on Tuesday, to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 from 2005 levels. The United Nations has pointed to that rate of decrease as a desired target for developed countries to mitigate the effects of climate change.

New York would become the largest city in the world to make the commitment, according to the city’s leaders.
