The ongoing confrontation on the Standing Rock Reservation gives us an interesting perspective. How should we look at the acquittal of the Malheur Wildlife occupiers? Is it fair to look at the Native American opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline as a climate issue? Isn’t it one of the historical oppression consistent with our long sad history? Listen in!
The reading list:
- Rubber Bullets?
- Dog kennels
- The Guardian on human rights
- Standing Rock as Keystone?
- Standing Rock v Malheur Wildlife?
- The Climate Minute on Gelspan's essay
- How to talk about DAPL
- We need a revolution, not a war
- The Climate Minute on McKibben's call for war
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
