The Open Veins of Climate Change

Confessions of a Former Oil Industry Consultant

Christine Shearer, Truthout: "Jeremy Leggett has undergone quite a few large career changes, from oil industry consultant to Greenpeace scientist to solar power entrepreneur. A geologist by training, he worked with the oil industry until his studies brought him face-to-face with the growing evidence of climate change. In an industry refusing to change, Leggett went to work for Greenpeace and was part of the first Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) talks up to the non-binding, international climate change treaty, the Kyoto Protocol."

From Drunken Party Girl To Climate Change Activist

Paul Rogat Loeb, Truthout: "When we try to engage people politically, we never know who will respond or when someone will shift from reveling in their apathy to taking powerful public stands. With Earth Day coming up, here's a striking example of one such transformation."

The Good News About the Very Bad News (About Climate Change)

Rebecca Solnit, TomDispatch.com: "These days, I see how optimistic and positive disaster and apocalypse movies were. Remember how, when those giant asteroids or alien space ships headed directly for Earth, everyone rallied and acted as one while our leaders led? We're in a movie like that now, except that there's not a lot of rallying or much leading above the grassroots level."

Earth Day Greenwashing From the World's Worst Polluter

Mickey Z, Truthout: "On Earth Day 2010 (April 22), the US Navy is going to stage a demonstration of its F/A-18 Super Hornet (a.k.a. the Green Hornet), powered by a 50/50 biofuel blend (made from the Camelina sativa plant). Before you attempt processing that nugget, I've got something else you may want to factor in: The USS Makin Island, the 'world's first hybrid fuel warship.'"
