Bike Bellingham is the 2011 local 350.org event

350.org has launched a 2011 project set for 9/24/2011, called "Moving Planet" with a website at www.moving-planet.org. In Bellingham, a project has risen up called "Bike Bellingham" which will feature family friendly bike rides from ten city schools that will converge at the Bellingham City Hall flag plaza for a climate rally/info fair from noon to 2 pm. There will also be an advanced ride from the plaza to the proposed Cherry Point Coal terminal leaving at 2 pm. If you would like more information, go to facebook.com/350bellingham. I will be posting additional information here as I learn more. However, there is a need for volunteers to help the day of the event, with pre-event postering canvassing for sponsors.

Words, by their very nature have an inherent bias which when misused reduce qualities, quite sublimely, of notions originating from different paradigms to a disingenuous playing field. When the debate between Good Jobs is juxtaposed against a tacit acknowledgment of a concern for the environment, it demonstrates or takes advantage of the flaw. The context provided by global climate disruption is of a different logical order. Failing to recognize the difference is at our own expense, or more bluntly, our own existence. Pretending otherwise only ushers us closer to a reality of bleak options, where there are no words.http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2014/08/ring-of-ice.html

On Monday night, all across the country, people will be gathering to mark this

moment together at protest vigils, where we will light the night with our

resolve to keep fighting. We need to show the media, big oil and the President

that this movement is mobilized and unafraid. The State Department just released

its flawed environmental report on the Keystone XL Pipeline, setting in motion

the countdown to the final decision by President Obama. So… it’s game time!

Please bring candles, bike lights, head lamps and a friend or 2 or 3 to light it

up and show our resolve and say NO to the Keystone XL Pipeline. We will gather

to shine our candles, bike lights and head lamps and light up the night.

How many folks will claim victory if the coal/oil trains end up being run through the county?

There are a couple interesting new things being hatched by activists at Power Past Coal: an investigation into creating a Municipal Energy district for B'ham as an alternative to PSE, and an effort to reverse the County moratorium on wind energy; to get involved contact Matt Petryni at http://www.re-sources.org/gpt

a little provocative for the coal/carbon/action set, me thinks?
This may be worth some discussion...
