Forty nine thousand, eight hundred ninety dollars and thirteen cents: The Climate Minute

Opposition to the extraction of lithium in Nevada is centered in an encampment in Thacker Pass. In a move that looks like a combination of harassment and intimidation, the BLM has levied a $49,890.13 fine against the founders of the camp. Max Wilbert is one of those founders, and we discuss justification for the camp, some of the relevant history and some details on the latest developments.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.

Voting Rights are a Climate Issue: The Climate Minute

Both the reconciliation package and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act (VRA) advanced in the House of Representatives.
