I have written in the past about climate change and the need for decisive action. You might think this odd for a blog about economics to be talking about climate change. How can I not talk about it? Climate change poses the greatest threat to human civilization since the atom bomb. It is the ecological part of ecological economics. But I digress…
As a blog I hereby official support the Beyond Talk Campaign. It is time for non-violent civil disobedience to make change happen. The Copenhagen Climate Conference is now less than 100 days away and we need a groundswell movement to make change happen NOW.
Beyond Talk is a great campaign originally conceived by The Yes Men and initiated by a group of organizations to “turn up the political heat” and push for a global climate agreement NOW. Check out the founders:
- Alliance of Community Trainers
- Center for the Working Poor
- Global Justice Ecology Project
- Indigenous Environmental Network
- Mobilization for Climate Justice West
- Rainforest Action Network
- Ruckus Society
- Yes Men
Take the pledge and make a difference – be a true activist!
