Hi Cascadians!

With Bush heading out and Obama coming in, new developments on the LNG front and lots more news about climate and dirty energy politics from around the US and the world, Rising Tide will be kicking off a new year of organizing against the root causes of climate change with a public orientation to our group and the issues on Sunday, January 4th, at 6pm at Red and Black Cafe.

With ever more chaotic weather patterns, greenhouse gas levels nearing an irreversible tipping points, and local and national democrat's climate and energy policies sending mixed signals at best, we're looking to seriously ramp up climate justice organizing in Portland this year: we're going to need you to do it!


We look forward to seeing you all there on Sunday at 6pm at Red and Black Cafe as we build up for a year of actions around Portland and the pacific northwest against dirty energy and bogus climate solutions, and for a more just sustainable planet!

See you this weekend!
Sunday, January 4th
6pm @ Red and Black Cafe
(400 SE 12th avenue at Oak)

science

Why should such a noble group of folks be on the climate change bandwagon? The theory is rapidly losing support and being exposed for what it is, junk science. Let's face the real environmental problems and develop alternative energy.  http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/globalwarming.html

Is using a BIG LIE for a noble cause justified? It usually just puts the wrong people in power/

is not "science"

sorry, there's near universal agreement that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and the burning of fossil fuels is causing its concentration to increase.

http://sofia.usgs.gov/sfrsf/rooms/coastal/flbay/genedustbigs/geneco2concx.gif

the fact that there's multiple factors at play in determining climate does not refute the need to take action about rising CO2 levels. your "logic" is like saying a house fire shouldn't be put out because earthquakes also destroy houses.

nor does how certain level of the greenhouse effect is both natural and beneficial to life. that's like arguing that since fire has known beneficial uses, the fact that one's house is on fire is no big deal.
