The image in the top left corner is the Climate Change March
On Sunday 2014-09-21 the largest climate
change demonstrations in the history of the planet will take place.
What is different now? Religious groups have seen climate change
happening around them and have given up their superstitious beliefs it
can’t happen here. Economists are realising the sooner we switch
to clean energy the less it will cost, the easier the transition will
be, and the sooner we can get on with the unprecedented prosperity of
an unlimited, almost free, clean energy economy. Find out what is happening in your part
of the world and how you can participate. It is not just the scientists
and environmentalists any more.

Circle of Protection
In an earlier stage of our development, most human groups held to a tribal ethic.
Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or
killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as
150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human
beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers
regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down
today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of
slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era
of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal
hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final
step in expanding the circle of ethics.

It is a fairly common thing for an American to go postal,
and kill his boss and co-workers when he loses his job. In that light, I would expect
Republican politicians would be daily assassinated by workers who have lost their jobs,
their homes and their life savings due to Republican policies, such as cutting people
