Women’s March and Energy justice

blackbd girl energy 492 KEven coming from a far corner of BC, Canada, women will converge on Washington DC on Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington. According to my sources the demonstration isn’t all anti-Trump; it’s more about standing up for social and economic justice and “all the promises of the Constitution.”

While the new president chooses Exxon-influenced and corporation-beholden decision makers, will anyone at the rally be protesting for an end to energy apartheid, that unjust system under which people living in poverty have to breathe the fumes of fossil fuel pollution but can’t afford to pay their utility bills? It’s a system under which poorer populations see their coal/gas/oil resources ransacked and are left with a mess to clean up. And billions of people shiver in the dark or lack electricity for ordinary comforts such as lighting.

Meanwhile the air we breathe and the water our children drink is affected by society’s energy choices.

Will women be standing up for their right to choice concerning systems of energy generation and distribution? Will anyone at the March on Washington inform our sisters and brothers about the reality of new energy inventions that could bring clean decentralized power to anyone and would cut healthcare costs as well as bring prosperity and satisfying jobs to folks in all bioregions?

Energy is power. It’s time for the people to reclaim their power of choice.

John Bedini the irreplaceable

bedini-july-2012

The Memorial service for the well-known inventor John Bedini and his brother Gary yesterday was both heart-warming and heart-wrenching. Both are missed very much already by many friends, and hearts ache about that. Peter Lindemann gave a summary of their accomplishments, thinking that he could read it all without choking up. Wasn’t that easy, understandably. […]
