On a level of logical order the future condition of the globally shared environment supersedes the potential expansion of various intertwined fiat economies. From the Anthropocene, to even consider much less manifest rewards from a contribution to planetary ecocide is nothing short of madness. “Good Jobs” don’t make the planet hotter. By all means take some time to grieve the passing of the Holocene, but in the meantime reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

Here’s how Time put it yesterday: "There are many climate problems a President can’t solve, but Keystone XL isn’t one of them. It’s a choice between Big Oil and a more sustainable planet." As with those historic moments at Stonewall or Selma, "The right answer isn’t always somewhere in the middle."

Thanks for all you’ve done, and thanks for all you’ll do.

1) Does anyone have a black roof they would like to have painted white this coming summer?

2) Would anyone like to help paint a rooftop or two?
