Activists Clayton Thomas-Müller and Vandana Shiva connect climate and social justice 25.5.2017 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Resh Budhu The Tommy Douglas Institute at George Brown College invites educational communities and wider communities to explore progressive ideas and critical perspectives on educating and organizing for change in the 21st century. Now, in its fifth year, we focus on the single most important issue of our time, the environment -- and the need to connect climate justice to social justice. On Wednesday May 31, environmental justice activists Clayton Thomas-Müller and Vandana Shiva will speak on this year's theme, Social Justice = Environmental Justice: Rethink! Reclaim! Respect! It's 2017 and eight billionaires own as much wealth as the world's bottom 50 per cent and two-thirds of wildlife will disappear by 2020. Winters have never been warmer and precarious jobs, divisive politics, gender-based violence and urban poverty continue to thrive. More people are being displaced by war and want, while once immortal icebergs melt into the oceans. Are they connected? Of course they are. As Clayton Thomas-Müller ...

"Clean This Place, Don't Displace": Activists Battle for Environmental Justice in Washington, DC 19.5.2017 Truthout.com

(Photo: Kari Fulton) Following the People's Climate March, Washington, DC residents have redoubled their fight for better air quality and to protect public housing in their gentrifying city. In particular, residents of Buzzard Point, a majority low-income African American community, are organizing to confront the proliferation of toxins from construction projects, such as the DC United Soccer Stadium. Buzzard Point in southwest DC is at risk of riverine and coastal flooding due to climate change. Of the ward's 84,000 residents, 93.3 percent are people of color. A series of development projects like the DC United Soccer Stadium, while at face value a boon for economic growth, unearth decades of toxicity in Buzzard Point, exposing community members to harmful substances while at the same time threatening to push out low- and middle-income residents.

The Global Movement To Divest From Fossil Fuels Is Unstoppable 15.5.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Over the past 10 days the pressure to break ties with the fossil fuel industry has never been greater, as thousands of people attended over 260 events in 45 countries on six continents during the Global Divestment Mobilisation (GDM), demanding institutions divest from fossil fuels. At a time when governments are failing to meet their climate-related promises and President Trump is threatening to leave the Paris Agreement, we can’t afford to stand-by waiting for our governments to do the right thing. Climate impacts are taking us into uncharted territory in terms of floods, forest fires, heatwaves, storms, and drought. We know that it is investments in the fossil fuel industry that fund climate impacts. That is why campaigners, faith groups, academics and impacted local communities came together to build on the fossil fuel divestment movement, which is now spreading in Asia, Latin America and Africa, setting the groundwork for future divestments. Divestment has proven to be an effective way to undermine ...

Bret Stephens just trolled the left with his supposed climate change denialism 1.5.2017 LA Times: Commentary

13 Better Things To Read Than Bret Stephens’ First New York Times Column 29.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The New York Times took a lot of heat for hiring Bret Stephens, a former opinion writer at The Wall Street Journal, as its newest columnist. There was a lot to criticize. In his storied tenure on some of the most radically conservative pages in print journalism, Stephens accused Arabs of suffering a “disease of the mind,” railed against the Black Lives Matter movement and dismissed the rise of campus rape as an “imaginary enemy.” But Stephens’ views on climate change ― namely that the jury is still out on whether burning fossil fuels is the chief cause ― drew the widest condemnation. ThinkProgress admonished the Gray Lady for hiring an “extreme climate denier,” and famed climatologist Michael Mann backed them up in the critique. DeSmog Blog , a site whose tagline reads “clearing the PR pollution that clouds climate science,” reported on a letter from climate scientists who are canceling their subscriptions to the newspaper over its latest hire. In These Times ’ headline pointedly asked: “Why the Hell did ...
