Record 2011 profits from Canadian tar sands devastation: Billions.
Record 2011 'Big Oil and Coal' profits: Billions and billions.
Total annual contributions to ecoSanity: You guessed it -- PRICELESS!
Some necessary tasks delayed our last few alerts and posts, and there was a limited window of opportunity to conceive them, let alone string words together with any, you know, flare and stuff.
But with one's back against the wall, no time or money to spare, and a substantial degree of dread, comes the motivation necessary to focus, dig deep and surface the soul in order to accomplish what MUST, somehow, get done.
Turns out this is also the kind of mindset that the climate crisis demands.
As we often state:
RIGHT NOW, our shared atmosphere is on an accelerating course to reach a state of potentially unsurvivable, runaway climate extremes during the lives of today's children --
+4C by 2060s or sooner (catastrophic and incompatible with organized civilization);
- Only EMERGENCY international action at EMERGENCY speed *may be* proportional enough to confront the scale, scope and urgency of what is already the greatest crime against humanity, most life and most future life EVER -- Compilation: Betrayal of Life.
A small number of extraordinary people have brought ecoSanity this far. But to achieve all that we aspire to, new supporters are needed to strengthen our collective voice and ease the burden.
If each person on our e-mail list were to give $5 just once, it would sustain ecoSanity through June 2012. $10 each would get us close to the end of 2012. And if a small fraction were to donate $10 per month, ecoSanity could thrive ALL year.
Please help us continue to do and say what's rare, hard and necessary, better and LOUDER.
And however you spend this time of year, we wish you peace, health and many more pleasant experiences than the other kinds!
Sincerely, Glenn MacIntosh, Founder: ecoSanity.org.
