Climate Change You Can Believe In

How long will we allow the climate deniers the prominence and weight that lets them give our political leaders cover to run and hide from reality? Two men in Massachusetts decided: No longer. This past May, they used their lobster boat to block a coal freighter from docking at a Massachusetts power station. They turned themselves in and faced charges that could have resulted in two years in jail and thousands of dollars in fines. But last week, the local district attorney stood on the courthouse steps and announced that he had dropped the criminal charges. "Climate change is one of the gravest crises our planet has ever faced," he said. "In my humble opinion, the political leadership on this issue has been gravely lacking." He then announced his intention to be at the People's Climate March in New York.
