Discussion with Ken Ward & Wes Clark, Jr. - Climate Emergency Leaders

Screen_Shot_2017-01-06_at_3.23.34_PM.png

Please join us for a Google Hangout on Thursday with two leaders of the climate emergency movement, Ken Ward and Wes Clark, Jr. Both recently took serious risks to support the Standing Rock Sioux and to advance the cause of climate mobilization. We'll discuss their actions, their consequences, and what they believe comes next for the climate emergency movement in the Age of Trump.

Do you have any questions you'd like to ask Ken or Wes during this session? Leave them in the live chat on Youtube!

Date: Thursday, Jan. 12
Time: 8:30 EST / 5:30 PDT

Last month, Wes Clark, Jr. co-organized Veterans for Standing Rock, the incredible effort that mobilized thousands of veterans to deploy to Standing Rock.

And in October, Ken and four others undertook what Reuters described as the "biggest coordinated move on U.S. energy infrastructure ever undertaken by environmental protesters," temporarily shutting down the five major tar sands pipelines carrying crude oil into the U.S. and halting 15% of crude oil imports for a day. (See their prophetic letter to President Obama calling for an emergency mobilization to phase out fossil fuels and draw down excess carbon.)

In exchange for trying to protect us from ecological holocaust, Ken has been charged with burglary, criminal trespass, sabotage and assemblage of saboteurs. His trial is on January 30th. Sign up for trial support and donate to help Ken, the other valve turners, and their supporters pay their legal and other expenses.

    doing what we can to remove co2 from the atmosphere is fine as long as it doesn’t get in the way of the effort to stop extraction of co2 from the earth

    I wonder what our guests think about emergency carbon dioxide removal directly from the atmosphere such as David Keith, and Klaus Lackner are proposing. The chief objection has been the expense, but I wonder if it’s time to think about how expensive a typical large volcanic eruption would be. The sulfates left to float in the stratosphere for a decade or so would devastate agriculture worldwide, mostly by cooling, as they have many times in the historical past, not to mention prehistory. Being able to release CO2 in a controlled way could be the best climate thermostat we could have for this and other emergencies That’s along with careful release of sulfates or more carefully tailored reflectors of sunlight

    This is an existential threat and a planetary emergency. We cannot depend on government leadership. They do talk but never in 25 years do they respond with sufficient or appropriate action. It on us.
