Naomi Klein: Climate Change "Not Just About Things Getting Hotter" 4.2.2016 Truthout - All Articles
A salt truck drives through Times Square in New York City during the blizzard that took place on January 23, 2016. (Photo: blvdone / Shutterstock.com ) A week and a half ago, just as a blizzard was barreling up the East Coast, I traveled to my hometown, Canandaigua, NY, and before a standing-room-only audience of more than 400 at Finger Lakes Community College, had a conversation with author and climate activist Naomi Klein. Our talk was part of the George M. Ewing Forum, named in honor of the late editor and publisher of our local newspaper. He was a worldly and informed man, dedicated to good talk and a lively exchange of ideas. The forum brings to town a variety of speakers each year, some of them from the area, others not. The Finger Lakes region is a beautiful part of the country. As has often been said, it runs on water, and as I grew up, there was an increasing realization that what we have is an invaluable natural resource we could be in danger of losing. Over the years, the threats have grown ...

North Carolina Town Shows Political Cost of Backing Big Oil 25.1.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Two years ago this month, more than 300 residents of Kure Beach, North Carolina (pop. 2,000), packed town hall to voice their anger with then-Mayor Dean Lambeth's decision to sign a letter supporting seismic testing for offshore oil and gas deposits. The letter was written by America's Energy Forum, a project of the American Petroleum Institute, the industry's leading trade association. That contentious meeting was the spark that ignited a growing grassroots movement against the Obama administration's proposal to open an area off the coasts of Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia to oil and gas development. What's happened in Kure Beach since shows that elected leaders could face consequences for ignoring widespread opposition to offshore drilling in coastal communities where economies are built on healthy oceans and clean beaches. Last November, Kure Beach residents denied Lambeth his bid for a fourth term as mayor. He lost by a 54 to 46 percent margin to Emilie Swearingen, who as town commissioner was ...

Gangbusters: How the Upsurge in Anti-Gang Tactics Will Hurt Communities of Color 19.1.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Bronx activist Shanice Farrar wants to honor her son, who was killed by police, and stop violence in her neighborhood. (Photo: Lyssy Pastrana) Building criminal cases and indicting young men with gang conspiracy charges are quickly becoming favored law enforcement approaches in New York City, and elsewhere in the United States. But are gang raids and so-called "community" policing efforts really decreasing violence in US cities?
