PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH – TO CHANGE EVERYTHING WE NEED EVERYONE

Most of you know that I am very concerned about the dangers of climate change.  Dick Cheney said “if there is even a 1% chance of a terrorist attack, we must do everything in our power to be prepared”. 95% or more of the scientific community agrees that climate change is happening, and is a dramatic threat to the planet, yet far less is being done to fight climate change than to fight terrorism.

It’s a good thing the streets of New York will be flooded soon — with hundreds of thousands of people demanding solutions to our out-of-control climate crisis. It’s both an honor and a calling of my conscience for me to contribute a poster to the People’s Climate March effort and get something urgent across about one of the biggest threats facing present and future generations. Lady Liberty and all of us are in trouble if we don’t push our leaders to take bold action.

HELP STOP POLICE MILITARIZATION!

I’ve always thought the U.S. spends WAY too much on the military, ten times as much as the next highest nation, China. A by-product of this excessive spending is a surplus of equipment that ends up being used to militarize our domestic police forces. This results in abuse of the equipment by police. Check out this video from Brave New Films. I’d rather see my tax dollars going to schools, infrastructure, or clean energy research and development. Thanks for caring.
-Shepard
Armored tanks. Automatic weapons. Tear gas. In small towns across America.

When did we all become the potential target of hostile military-police aggression? When the federal government decided to spend billions getting police every toy they could possibly want.

To use against our own citizens. With no protocol or training on when such force and intimidation may be justified.
