"We're not the radicals. We want a world a little bit like the one we were born into. Oil companies are the radical ones. They are willing to alter the chemical composition of the atmosphere in order to make money.
They have already run up the carbon level in the atmosphere well past the safe line of 350 pers per million. Now that they are trying for a world that would jeopardize the lives of most living things. Does that seem right to you?
Our challenge for you for the years head. If we can break their power, then the planet has a future.
I do not know if we can. They are the ones with all the power and money, so we need to find other currencies like passion, spirit and creativiity.
Sometimes we are to have to put our lives on the line and get arrested. This is the fight of our time, maybe of all time. And we should all be on it to be a small part of it."
We are not the radicals. Oil companies are the radicals. They are willing to alter the chemical composition of the atmosphere to make more money. - inspired by Bill McKibben, environmental author and founder of 350.org
