This Thanksgiving, people around the country who have felt some of the most severe impacts of climate change have come together to thank people taking action -- in large and small ways -- to try to stop the unfolding catastrophe.
While President Obama's focus on climate change is a welcome, albeit belated, shift, it remains to be seen whether he will match words with action. More and more environmental organizations and activists are prepared to keep the pressure on to ensure he does.
Faced with a clear choice between Big Oil and all its money, threats, and politicians, and a people powered movement determined to stop this enormous threat to our air, water, food security, and climate, Obama made the right call.
I was saddened to hear the details of the climate bill soon to be released by Senators Kerry, Graham, and Lieberman. This bill could be a step backwards unless the Senators fix key provisions in the upcoming weeks.
