The Light Brigade Shines at the Shivering Blackout Rally

Some observations from the “Forward on Climate” Rally: Here’s the background on what we were doing February 17. At least a dozen protesters we met were proudly pro-blackout. Here’s one example.

DishonestLand: Hollywood’s “Promised Land” Slanders the Frac’ing Revolution

[Originally published in MasterResource] The story of hydraulic fracturing (frac’ing) is one of the most important stories of our time. It needs to be told far and wide–and certainly by our top talent in Hollywood. The true story of frac’ing is utterly inspiring.
