Ugh. New investigation reveals that @MarshMcLennan--which has made lots of noises about sustainability--is insuring one of the most destructive fossil fuel projects on the planet thebureauinvestigates.com/stories/2022-0…
Many thanks to Larry Parks Daloz and @yesmagazine for a fine review of my new book--if you came from the suburbs, this may help you understand how the hell we ended up where we are in this country yesmagazine.org/issue/pleasure…
This is going to be a vital project--and it comes from some of the most creative minds on the planet. Many thanks to @RebeccaSolnit and @Thelma_Lutun for their leadership here! twitter.com/NotTooLate_Hop…
Kills me to be out of Vermont today, because the local chapter of @Third_Act_Org was absolutely rocking it outside the Chase branch in Burlington. Fossils against fossil fuels, that's us--and we are going to get it done, all across America!
Super to see @dwallacewells debut column in the @nytimes. So much great climate writing right now! nyti.ms/39VxwFc
Extremely glad to see more of us fossils against fossil fuels demonstrating Wednesday at Chase Bank in Vermont! Go @Third_Act_Org thirdact.org/news-updates/2…
TIAA--ironically, the pension fund for academic scientists and many others in the educational and nonprofit world--is "lagging behind" its peers in engaging with climate change. Time to #divestTIAA ieefa.org/articles/tiaa-…

This morning the New Yorker publishes the 1st chapter of my new book, which is as near a memoir as I'll ever write (us.macmillan.com/books/97812508…) It's about the suburbs, the (golden?) age of liberalism, where things went wrong, my nifty Dad. I hope you enjoy it newyorker.com/culture/person…

"The affluent American suburb may be the greatest wealth-accumulation engine of all time; at least until the financial crisis of 2008, it was a no-fail guaranteed ride. But you needed that initial thirty thousand, or access to a bank that would lend it to you." twitter.com/billmckibben/s…

One night at a time Tucker Carlson may seem like a joke. But as this important @nytimes series makes clear, he is reshaping discourse in America, and in the ugliest and most dangerous possible ways. Limbaugh damaged our country, and it grows steadily worse nytimes.com/2022/04/30/us/…
The mighty and crucial kelp forests of the Pacific--the 'redwoods of the sea'--have been literally decimated by fast-rising ocean temperatures. This is a crucial part of the climate puzzle @Helvarg nytimes.com/2022/04/30/opi…

“The climate crisis is not at bottom a beef between two camps of people. It’s a beef between human beings and physics. And since physics is implacable, we would be well-advised to meet its dictates.” billmckibben.substack.com/p/who-gets-to-…
Amidst an insane heat wave, a massive garbage dump in New Delhi has now caught fire, choking the city with toxic smoke theguardian.com/world/2022/apr…

Ten percent of all the people on earth are sweltering under truly extreme heat tonight cnn.com/2022/04/27/wea…
The heat pumps for peace and freedom campaign keeps growing. @MarkRuffalo knows as much about clean energy as anyone I know (also a little bit about acting). twitter.com/MarkRuffalo/st…
Extremely glad that the buzz around @sallyweintrobe's quite remarkable little book continues to build--a truly powerful account of some of the places we went wrong, and how we might right them newstatesman.com/the-environmen…

The town of Brookline MA has made repeated attempts to put a ban on new gas hookups; now they've launched an appeal of the latest state rejection. This is important public policy zerocarbonma.org/press-release-…
A key lesson of recent history is that there's nothing so bad it can't be made quite a bit worse.

Many many thanks to @sunrisemvmt for some great historical footage of the first Earth Day. That's the spirit we're trying to draw on @Third_Act_Org because a lot of us who were there are still alive. twitter.com/sunrisemvmt/st…
Why has our government not asked us to make the slightest change to help in the Ukraine fight--say, by saving energy? newyorker.com/news/daily-com…

Great Passover action from @JoinDayenu outside bank HQ in San Francisco: those are the ten deadly cliamte plagues that we need them to stop funding
Great piece from @Guay_JG. As Europe works to get off gas, Big Oil is suckering the Biden administration into decades more of addiction. A classic, tragic mistake that will haunt their legacy. guay.substack.com/p/the-world-ne…
One thing I love about publishing each new book--right back to The End of Nature--is talking with my old friend Joe Donahue of @WAMC, public radio for the northeast. Even though this is a picture book, Joe still made it memorable radio! wamc.org/podcast/the-ro…
