The election of DJT represents a break point in American history, challenging all the principles and virtues that we presume to hold. Given the disruption caused by our new politics, it will be hard to go back to a ‘November 7th’ world- even if we wanted to. The question is: Do we simply want to go back to the way things were, or should be we planning and fighting for a new vision of our country? President Bannon surely is doing so- shouldn't we? Resistance is a tool to build a new future. What will that future look like?

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.
