A huge march of hundreds of thousands is being planned for Sunday Sept. 21, right before the UN Climate Summit. Long-time activists are pessimistic that this UN climate summit will be anything different than the past several, so a group of people from Occupy Wall St. and System Change Not Climate Change are planning an alternative summit to take place the Friday and Saturday BEFORE the march. Another group of people have an alternative summit planned for the Monday and Tuesday AFTER the march.
They asked me to announce these alternative summits, but I felt the event should get its own show so we could go into depth. So this Tuesday, Peter Rugh, Natalie McClellen and I will discuss it, the need for it, and the state of environmental politics in the U.S. Peter and Natalie are involved in planning the NYC Climate Convergence: Real Solutions to the Climate Crisis. They'll be discussing technological and political solutions, looking at the systemic roots of the problem, and looking at building movements that challenge the exploitation of the environment for profit
