10/21/2019 2:14:56San Francisco Climate Strike Street Murals Take Over Wall Street WestArticle or blog, VideoBen Robertsben@conversationcollaborative.comhttps://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/09/28/san-francisco-climate-strike-street-murals-take-over-wall-street-westPublished on Saturday, September 28, 2019 by Common Dreams (h/t Jim Best for sharing on Facebook)Beautiful climate justice activism through street art. "The Global Climate Strike coalition says, 'At a total of over 7 million and still counting, the... Global Climate Strikes is... one of the largest coordinated global protests in History. From September 20th to 27th, millions of students, parents, trade unions, businesses, health workers, scientists, celebrities, people of all backgrounds, ages, regions and faiths came together in all corners of the globe calling for climate action.'"Climate Change and Consciousness, Climate Change Conversations in Libraries (and Beyond), Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition, WEAll: Wellbeing Economy AllianceThe photos of the murals are gorgeous. They "were mostly painted with natural paint made from Ione Miwok Red Clay from the Sierra foothills and also children's-type colored tempera paints." Also check out this video of the murals show from above the street, showing how Native American basket weaving designs connected all the murals into a single flow: https://www.instagram.com/p/B225QSoFYWj/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet1.

I was discussing potential keynote topics with a group of conference planners. “How about fundraisers’ role in addressing systemic injustice,” I said, “including the need to have courageous conversations with donors about difficult topics like slavery, colonization, wealth disparity, and reparation? I’ll start with some light humor, maybe a few pictures of adorable kittens, and then BAM—racism!”

“Uh,” said the planners, “I’m not sure our members are ready for…that…” There was an awkward silence. I ate some BBQ chips. In the foreground, some tumbleweeds rolled by. A horse snorted nervously...

10/30/2019 15:10:08Why almost all coal was made at the same timeVideo, PodcastTom Brownhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b34al8YmQSA&feature=shareMost of the coal on earth was created during a single short period of geological history 300 million years ago. It's called the carboniferous period. Find out why coal production stopped so abruptly.

CORRECTIONS

So this video was quite rushed because I wanted to get it out in time for the #teamtrees launch. Here are a couple of things I got wrong:

Not ALL coal was made during the carboniferous period. There exists some younger coal here and there that formed under rare conditions that enabled it in spite of the presence of capable fungi. I did film myself saying that but it was lost it my rushed edit.

Photosynthesis is more complicated than I described. It involves water for a start. And it seems that the oxygen released during photosynthesis comes from the H₂O not the CO₂. Though I haven't be able to verify that.

And here's a non-correction! The thing I was holding up at the start was not charcoal. It was a coal dust briquette. You could argue that the briquette was made recently but the coal it's made of is old!

So yeah, the thrust of the video still stands but it's been a learning opportunity for me!

A final thought on planting trees for carbon capture. A lot of comments saying "what's the point? When the trees die the decomposers will release the CO₂ back into the atmosphere. But really this is more about planting *forests*. In a forest, when a tree dies, another tree grows in its place recapturing the carbon. But also, it's my understanding that it takes a very long time to release the CO₂. Like hundreds of years. So in terms of tackling climate change which is a problem of human time scales, it's a useful endeavour.

An excerpt from the lyrics:

We believe in warriors and we don't believe in war
And we'll arm ourselves in liberty
Arms out stretched at your door
And, we believe in the righteous and the sacred
Holy Stone,
In the howl of 'howl'ellujah
In the gathering of the bones
If I could fight it, I'd ride it
I'd have it all up in this corner
Oh no, It's not scary it's hairy
I'm bearing oh, oh, staking it
I'm bearing everything I got
All that magic in my cookpot
I'm photosynthesising with me all up in the wheel lot

11/7/2019 9:55:47(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and UnderstandingVideo, MusicBen Robertsben@conversationcollaborative.comhttps://youtu.be/Oy3LpV0THB0Nick Lowe and Los StriaghtjacketsI saw Nick Lowe solo last week, and of course he performed this song, which he wrote. We listened to it at the beginning and end of today's Deep Dive call, and it moved me to tears both times. I was surprised. I think that's because I'm used to the "angry" version recorded by Elvis Costello, who made the song famous. Lowe's version is tender and sweet.

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.
'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

11/19/2019 4:53:06Forged in Fire: California’s Lessons for a Green New DealArticle or blogBen Robertsben@conversationcollaborative.comhttps://theintercept.com/2019/11/07/california-wildfires-green-new-deal/by Naomi Klein, Nov. 7, 2019, in The InterceptKlein describes the response in Chico, CA to the influx of refugees from the Camp fire in nearby Paradise. When an initial burst of compassionate, citizen-organized relief is threatened by profiteering and a push to return to business as usual, the city responds with a commitment to "demonstrate what a Green New Deal looks like at the local level."

"If the responses to the climate crisis do not simultaneously begin to repair the wrenching injustices and inequalities that scar and strain our world, they have no hope of success. The bottom line is that people are already under too much stress and strain to take any more."

Rushkoff continues: "How would they pay the guards once money was worthless? What would stop the guards from choosing their own leader? The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew. Or making guards wear disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival. Or maybe building robots to serve as guards and workers." OMFG!Climate Change and Consciousness, Context Institute, GatherLab3. Adaptation to a Transforming World, 4. Just Transition & Green New Deal
