We fought apartheid. Now climate change is our global enemy | Desmond Tutu 21.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
On the eve of the UN Climate Summit, Desmond Tutu argues that tactics used against firms who did business with South Africa must now be applied to fossil fuels to prevent human suffering Never before in history have human beings been called on to act collectively in defence of the Earth. As a species, we have endured world wars, epidemics, famine, slavery, apartheid and many other hideous consequences of religious, class, race, gender and ideological intolerance. People are extraordinarily resilient. The Earth has proven pretty resilient, too. It's managed to absorb most of what's been thrown at it since the industrial revolution and the invention of the internal combustion engine. Until now, that is. Because the science is clear: the sponge that cushions and sustains us, our environment, is already saturated with carbon. If we don't limit global warming to two degrees or less we are doomed to a period of unprecedented instability, insecurity and loss of species. Fossil fuels have powered human endeavour ...

Climate change is a global emergency. Stop waiting for politicians to sound the alarm 20.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

The truth about our planet is horrifying, but the true leaders arent the ones at the UN theyre in the streets

At exactly 1pm on Sunday, the streets of New York City are going to fill with the sound of clanging pots, marching bands, church bells and whatever other kinds of noisemakers that participants of the Peoples Climate March decide to bring along.

Its being called the climate alarm, and the general idea is that a whole lot of people are going to make the very loud point that climate change is a true emergency for humanity, the kind of threat that should cause us to stop what we are doing and get out of harms way.

Tom Schatz: An environmental waste of breath 20.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Environmental issues have been front and center in Colorado this year. No wonder: The state’s natural beauty is perhaps its greatest treasure. As I rode the gondola to the top of Thunderhead last night, I knew I was the latest visitor to the Yampa Valley to reach this realization. Yet in the midst of the discussions about fracking, the future of the coal industry, balancing preservation with development and other important issues, one topic has remained relatively hidden: renewable electricity standards. There are 30 states with mandatory RES laws already on the books; the federal government has not yet established a national standard. Under the state laws, energy users are forced to pay for a certain percentage of renewable resources, regardless of cost or other considerations. Mounting evidence shows that these policies have been a colossal failure. Nonetheless, some legislators want to lead the fight to establish a national 25 percent renewable energy standard, whether or not a state wants to ...

Why I’m Marching Against Climate Change 19.9.2014 Mother Jones
This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. There have undoubtedly been stable periods in human history, but you and your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents never lived through one, and neither will any children or grandchildren you may have or come to have. Everything has been changing continuously, profoundly—from the role of women to the nature of agriculture. For the past couple of hundred years, change has been accelerating in both magnificent and nightmarish ways. Yet when we argue for change, notably changing our ways in response to climate change, we're arguing against people who claim we're disrupting a stable system. They insist that we're rocking the boat unnecessarily. I say: rock that boat. It's a lifeboat; maybe the people in it will wake up and start rowing. Those who think they're hanging onto a stable order are actually clinging to the wreckage of the old order, a ship already sinking, that we need to leave ...
