This made this top 20 list of political songs of all time

Being white and politically active - including active on race issues - I had not heard this song before. I was a kid when this came out but still you would think sometime in the last 50 years, this would have crossed my path. My husband who has been politically aware and is older than me, he hadn't heard it before I played it for him last night either. We are white.

As long as this is an Al Gore thread...

This video is like a tonic. I watch this when I begin to doubt we can fix this ... but we will turn this craziness around ... we just need to do it together and we will.



You're welcome.

What Happened To The Republican Consensus On Climate Change?

#t=84

This video includes quotes from George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, House Speaker Boehner, Senator John McCain and others talking about how they see Climate Change as a threat, that it is real and that it is human caused.

So, what happened here?

**********************************
From my email from climate reality project: "Climate change might certainly cause some sleepless nights, but what's happening tonight on Capitol Hill is something entirely new.

Starting right now, 6:30 pm EST, 30 passionate Senators -- including members of the Senate Climate Action Task Force -- are taking to the Senate floor to talk nonstop about climate change through the wee hours of the morning. They're attempting to elevate the urgency of climate disruption -- because it truly is one of the most important issues of our time.

We wanted to make sure you knew this was happening tonight -- very soon in fact -- so we hope you'll take a few minutes to be a part of this historic event.

Here's how you can get involved:
