On this Memorial Day, as we mourn the needless loss of thousands of fellow humans in days past and future, we acknowledge that these losses are rooted in the diseases of domination, greed, violence, militarism, discrimination, and war. Let us today make a commitment to support egalitarian, regenerative, and sustainable solutions for generations to come. ... See MoreSee Less

Why is someone locked in a box in 'the way forward' Kinda an oxymoron

No. Watch Planet Of The Humans. Start using less. Not building more but using what we got more efficiently

This is a great critique, a clear rebuttal actually of the many distortions in this film. Can't understand why Michael Moore is promoting it - he obviously hasn't vetted it carefully.

Extinction Rebellion BTV

Last Saturday, Extinction Rebellion Vermont and allies, using extreme social distancing techniques, planted 39 chestnut trees in honor of nonviolent warrior Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated the same day in 1968 at the age of 39.

The trees were planted on property where working class families once lived before the City of Burlington razed their homes to expand BTV airport and pave the way for the appalling F-35 war aircraft. Vermont's contingent of F-35s burns thousands of gallons of toxic fuel in mere moments and is contributing to the ill health of neighboring communities due to their freakishly loud engine noise.

Burlington has turned a working class neighborhood into a wasteland. The ghostly footprints of former homes remain, waiting for a purpose and reminding us of the disdain that the forces of destruction have for life. These forces are not resting during this pandemic, and neither can we.

The city has said it has a landscape plan for the area, but we all know that "plan" likely consists of occasional mowing. Extinction Rebellion's planting of these 39 "MLK Trees" will help the city with their landscaping, provide healing to these maltreated residential lots, and begin the process of recapturing a fraction of the carbon burned by the military's death machines next door.

We invite the City of Burlington to use these trees as a catalyst for a full reforestation of this besieged territory.

What do you think capitalists will say when climate change becomes too severe to ignore? We need a revolution so we don’t have to find out.

In a slow moving crisis like climate change, those in power can lie and manipulate the truth in order to avoid systemic change. In a fast moving crisis where the consequences are clear, they are forced to defend their actual position: the economy is more important than people’s health and well being. We must end the destructive system that will prioritize profits over the lives of our most vulnerable and we must recognize that it will also prioritize profits over the long term habitability of our planet. ...

soil is usSOIL IS US
We owe our existence to soil. In a sense, we are animate consciously-aware expressions of the life generated by soil. Without soil there would be no terrestrial life forms on earth.
Four-hundred-and-seventy million years ago fungi cytoplasts united with bacteria and algae to become lichen and launched their mutualistic partnership upon a vast single continent of rock. They know longer waited for weatherization to wash nutrients to the sea. They colonized the rock and became the primogenitors of pedogenesis. The Permian forests grew from the soil lichen first built---laying down the coal oil and shale we burn today. Back then the CO2 in the atmosphere was 7000-8000 ppm. Deep soils teeming with life drew CO2 down to as low as 100ppm. Soil gave rise to hydrologic systems. Established the balanced climate in which our species evolved. Yet, to judge by our actions, soil is the most under-valued and abused of all the natural resources at our disposal. The last 30 years have seen an explosion in exciting new panoramas of research into the complex mutualism between plants and the soil biome. We now know that through photosynthesis plant roots deliver a 3rd or more of the sugars plants produce to the soil microorganisms. This liquid carbon drives the vast food web of our biosphere. The soil carbon sponge is designed to be the repository of excess carbon. It is the living library out of which all our dreams of existence are spun. We have come to understand that fungi are a keystone species in this hidden world. And that the conventional agriculture we have developed over the last 60 years has reduced that soil fungal population by 90%. We have degenerated degraded and desertified ½ of the terrestrial planet that is not covered with ice. If we restore this land just think of how much carbon we could draw down.

Come out and do something "dramatic" with us!

We strive to not only create a just future for future generations, but to build a joyous, reflective, and accessible movement along the way. Taking action and building strong community relationships are some of the best antidotes to despair!
