Why we desperately need the climate legislation in the Inflation Reduction Act

It’s a new day in the climate battle that can only be fought by believing we can still make a difference.

Michael Mann

Climate scientist Michael Mann has achieved fame for his work in proving climate change is happening. He says that even as we move past climate denialism, the battle over how to take action against global warming is as urgent as ever.

Dan Glickman

Good News: Small Groups Can Defeat Corporate Giants

 

From corporate polluters to political bosses, power elites try to create a myth of inevitability, trying to make workaday people feel helpless, too small to change the injustices of the system. Don’t bother is their message.

Bill talked to his old friend the Reverend Barry Lynn who has spent his entire life fighting to keep the wall up between Church and State as well as many progressive causes. For 25 years he was Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
