To push back on misinformation coming from Harper’s government and the tar sands industry, national and international economists, scientists and academics including Dr. Danny Harvey from the University of Toronto and John Abraham from University of St. Thomas School of Engineering have come together to launch TarSandsRealityCheck.com, which presents the 25 most important facts people need to know about the Alberta tar sands. The facts on the website reflect the best available scientific data, drawing on government, industry and academic sources.May 20, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Last year, PowerShift 2012 brought together nearly 1500 youth from all across Canada for a one-of-a-kind gathering. Focused on building the movement to transition Canada to a just and sustainable future, author and activist Naomi Klein called it “the best environmental conference” she had ever attended.
This October we are taking the next step and organizing PowerShift BC, the first of our planned regional PowerShifts. Focusing on local issues and regional movement building, this will be a mass gathering of youth from across BC, the Yukon and the western Prairies where we will educate, train and mobilize our generation to take a stand.

The pipeline isn’t inevitable, and it shouldn’t be treated as such. It’s just another step on the march to disaster.
Were we to burn through all known fossil-fuel reserves, the results would be unimaginably bleak: major cities would be flooded out, a large portion of the world’s arable land would be transformed into deserts, and the oceans would be turned into liquid dead zones. If we take the future at all seriously, which is to say as a time period that someone is going to have to live in, then we need to leave a big percentage of the planet’s coal and oil and natural gas in the ground. These basic facts have been established for decades, and every President since George Bush senior has vowed to do something to avert catastrophe. The numbers from Mauna Loa show that they have failed.
In rejecting Keystone, President Obama would not solve the underlying problem, which, as pipeline proponents correctly point out, is consumption. Nor would he halt exploitation of the tar sands. But he would put a brake on the process. After all, if getting tar-sands oil to China were easy, the Canadians wouldn’t be applying so much pressure on the White House. Once Keystone is built, there will be no putting the tar back in the sands.May 20, 2013 at 3:00 pm
Dropping Chinese demand for coal...dropping US demand for coal, good news. But China's meeting it's demand with their own mines...
" China, with its cities shrouded in smog, also is trying to improve energy efficiency and diversify its fuel mix, including investments in nuclear energy and wind power, according to Goldman Sachs. Deutsche Bank also said in a report released this month that there are increasing signs of “softer Chinese coal demand growth going forward.”
The global German banking firm pointed to protests in China against coal-fired power plants and associated pollution. It also said urbanization of China’s interior means much of the future demand for coal will come closer to areas where China has its own mines."

GreenParty Delaware In 2014, Pennsylvania would save $33 billion over current costs if we implemented the proposed system. This would allow for coverage of all uninsured in the Commonwealth while still netting $17 billion in savings. http://swartzforyork.com/healthcare-reform/

Occupy Fights Foreclosures states that it has been able to help many owners keep their homes, often through direct negotiations with banks. Their tougher cases have led to protests where members break into homes, return them to their owners and barricade the houses off from mortgage servicing companies and law enforcement. One such protest in Van Nuys lasted over two months last year before being shut down. Occupiers are still defending a home in East Los Angeles. That protest is in its sixth month. Another such protest, in Altadena, began last month.May 19, 2013 at 4:45 pm

Even better, cancel all student debt. Just Cancel It!!
Tell Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons to stand with Elizabeth Warren
Over 425,000 Americans signed the petition supporting Elizabeth Warren’s first bill -- giving students the same break as the big banks.
This week, Elizabeth Warren thanked her grassroots supporters, saying "as people like you stand with me in this fight, Washington takes notice -- and for that, I can't thank you enough."
Let's make sure Washington takes notice. Can you call Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons and ask them to support Warren's bill? Click here for the number and a script.
It's outrageous that big banks get a 0.75% interest rate while student loan interest rates are set to jump from 3.4% to 6.8% this summer.
The big banks have armies of lobbyists and lawyers, but the students have us. Let’s keep up the momentum!
Call your Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons now -- ask them to stand with the thousands of Americans who think students deserve the same breaks as the big banks.
