The People’s Climate March, April 29, 2017

The People marched today, in cities everywhere, to bring attention to the reality of Climate Change and its ramifications for the planet.

Meanwhile at the White House, or perhaps Mar-a-Lago, the Plunder King sleeps.

  1. When the people stand up, it’s amazing what can happen Jim. I watched a documentary the other day about China and how scientists were helping farmers understand how the dams that the hydro companies were building were affecting the environment and destroying the lives of millions of people. They even took one group of villagers to another village by bus to see what had become of the people there when a dam was installed 20 years previously forcing farmers to leave their land and move up into the mountains. Years later village by village, farmer by farmer, scientist by scientist, the people have made a huge difference, even getting environmental laws passed. Kind of reminds me of the early Americans who protected places like the Grand Canyon by stopping corporations in their tracks. ❤

      Thanks for that, Diana, I hadn’t heard of that documentary. It seems so basic, so simple, to rely on basic truths and facts … and yet, a certain element in the U.S. just can’t deal with reality. And we’re in a huge mess. One hundred days? I’ve aged 100 years. Reasonable people have to keep fighting the good fight, and hope we don’t get taken out by the likes of those who were at 45’s “campaign rally” and ass-kissing of the NRA. He’s inciting violence and a civil war. Hate to be so grim, but that’s how I see it. If I put my “Resist” bumper sticker on my car, I’ll have to watch my back all the time. Thanks for keeping up with this. I’m not writing much these days. Too busy resisting, but that’s what feels right.

      Thank you, Charles … I’ve been a bit distracted these past 100 days or more. See above response to Diana. Keep up your good work. Our country’s history is so vital to the nation, and our personal histories are crucial to us as individuals and our descendants. I apologize for not being as involved here as I was before. Maybe in November 2018 things will ease up. 🙂

    How have we gotten to the point that this is even an open issue? Sad!!! (to borrow from our fearless leader)

      It all came to a head with the “perfect storm” of 2016 — anger among the disenfranchised; fake news; the outdated Electoral College structure; anti-Obama and anti-Hillary sentiment (also known as racism and misogyny) and a celebrity culture that watches Fox News, doesn’t read or appreciate facts.

  4. Jim we sit back and watch this presidency unravel from over here. I do sympathise with you.

      Thanks, Kath … every hour of every day, there’s some new development — usually a self-inflicted injury by our liar-in-chief. He needs to be gone, and soon. We’ll have other battles to fight when VP Pence takes over, but at least the Trump narcissism, childishness and idiocy will be out of the way.
