Evolve Love Live – Legacy of Climate Crisis

Poster_green_blog_network

COULD THE CLIMATE CRISIS CREATE THE GREATEST LOVE STORY ON EARTH?

“Evolve Love: Love in a Time of Climate Crisis” is a creative feature documentary (in progress) that will take us on a voyage to discover the ways in which planet wide climate catastrophe could propel us into a sustainable future founded on empathy for all life on earth.

Chronicling the birth of a global “movement of movements” forming to confront climate change, EVOLVE LOVE will reframe the despairing, apocalyptic narrative that is dominating popular discourse around the crisis, transforming it into a moving love story.

The film will feature compelling stories of everyday individuals who are living with the devastating impacts of climate change, while taking us through to the emerging “BRIGHT GREEN” sustainability movement, which offers the energizing confidence of constructive solutions and action, showing that we can reduce our ecological footprint while improving our lives.

With director Velcrow Ripper’s signature awe inspiring visuals, a powerful soundscape, compelling animation, moving stories of crisis, restoration and sustainability, combined with the wisdom of the greatest climate crisis visionaries, EVOLVE LOVE will be an inspirational, transformative and engaging viewing experience.

When: May 23, 2011, Doors 6:15 pm, Start 7:00 pm

Where: Vic Theatre, 808 Douglas St., Victoria, BC

Just when people and pundits had been saying that the Climate and Energy bill traveling through the Senate wouldn’t get anywhere near the attention that the Dems’ pet Health Bill received, the Gulf Oil Gusher, our nation’s worst environmental disaster to date, hit. 

The terrible upside to disasters is that they spotlight disastrous situations and systemic failures and weak links.

Meeting this past Thursday in Washington D.C., California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke with Henry A. Waxman, co-author of the Waxman-Markey Bill who also chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee (D-California) and also U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

The United States has failed to enact a comprehensive climate bill. It is time to stop protecting polluters and enact comprehensive climate legislation that will create American jobs, cap carbon emissions and secure our nation’s future.

Sunday on the Mall in Washington, DC approximately one hundred fifty thousand gathered to show their support for clean energy legislation  in the US. Musical artists Sting, John Legend, Passion Pit, The Roots, and others entertained the throngs of activists and environmentally concerned citizens.  At some point a large rubber ball was tossed around the stage,  symbolizing the approximately 1,000 plastic bags used per year by each American family.  Read MORE On Scientific American

Bruce Nilles (now Sierra Club Deputy Conservation Director and former Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign Director) spoke at the conference and got the crowd roaring.

NOTABLE SPEAKERS include Reverend Jesse Jackson, international coordinator Earth Day 2010, Denis Hayes, Waterkeeper Alliance president, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., film director, James Cameron, AFL-CIO President, Richard Trumka, Green for All director, Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, Olympic gold medalist, Billy Demong, producer, Trudie Styler, author, Margaret Atwood, NFL player and television personality, Dhani Jones, environmental photographer Sebastian Copeland and MANY MORE.

>Offshore Drilling. Is It The Right Choice?

Offshore Drilling – Is it the Right Choice?

This is a tough question.  My gut reaction is to say, “no, it’s not the right choice.”  However, I have to admit I don’t know all the details behind Obama’s recent announcement.  I know the basics, the information we’re allowed to have.  It’s the information we are not privy to that makes me have concerns about the motives behind this decision.  The risks and dangers that go along with offshore drilling seem too great to me.  If accidents didn’t happen and we were 100% secure that all would be well, I’m sure we could stand behind it to an extent.  But the reality is that we could ruin hundreds of miles of coastline, kill thousands of sea life and leave our oceans devastated.  The thought of what that picture looks like is too horrifying.  So in the end I have to say no.

Not that long ago Obama was saying “no” too.  That concerns me.  It’s a big swing in the opposite direction. How does that happen?  Unfortunately we call that politics and it’s a game with too many players at the table. Here is a video of Obama opposing offshore drilling just a little over a year ago.

VIDEO – Obama on Offshore Drilling

If this concerns you too, take a moment to send a letter to our president.  You can use the form letter or write your own.  I was hoping that once Obama was in office I could sit back, relax and feel confident that I could stand behind all his decisions.  That was me being naive and hoping to be politically lazy. Change is indeed gonna come and we need to be a driving force!
