Lobster Boat Blockade Of Coal Plant Leads District Legal professional To Local weather Leadership
When i met my husband Geof Day, his work as a local weather activist introduced me to some interesting folks concerned with stone island jas 2015 350.org. Recently, I heard the inspiring story of Ken Ward and Jay O’Hara, two local weather activists who, up until September 8th, thought they can be doing prison time for his or her daring action of blockading the most important coal-fired energy plant on the East Coast with an old lobster boat. Final week, Sam Sutter, a neighborhood District Legal professional, agreed that as a result of the actions of Ward and O’Hara at Brayton Point had been reasonably reflective of a broader danger (that of local weather change), all prices, past paying some minor damages, needs to be dropped. Later, in a stunning move, that same DA–whereas waving a duplicate of Rolling Stone that includes an article by 350.org founder Bill McKibben–acknowledged that climate change is “considered one of the greatest crises our planet has ever confronted,” that political leadership on this matter has been “sorely lacking,” and that he can be becoming a member of them on the upcoming People’s Climate March.
