IN MEMORIAM
Jim BohlenDorothy Stowe
Following November’s mid-term elections, Itook solace in the words of Martin LutherKing, Jr., who wisely said, “We must acceptfinite disappointment, but never lose infinitehope.”Many of the incoming Republicans inCongress deny the reality of global warmingand favor fossil fuels over clean energy,which is definitely a disappointment.However, even with large Democraticmajorities in the House and Senate earlierthis year, the climate bill was killed and the oilindustry won billions of dollars in funding.The painful truth is that we can no longer relyon the government to deliver the kind ofchange we need for a green and peacefulfuture. We the people are the planet’s onlyhope, and I haveinfinite hope in the power ofpeople.My hope is bolstered by the broad coalitionfrom different political, ethnic, religious, andsocio-economic backgrounds that cametogether in California and defeatedProposition 23. This oil-funded ballotmeasure would have suspended the GlobalWarming Solutions Act of 2006, but agrassroots movement of concerned andcommitted individuals stopped the measurein its tracks.Greenpeace helped lead the charge againstProposition 23, but our efforts would havebeen nothing without the thousands ofpeople who attended rallies, signed petitions,and made their voices heard. On November2nd, the people of California voted downProposition 23 by a wide margin of 21% –the most lopsided defeat of any of thepropositions presented to voters in 2010.Our struggle to prevent the catastrophiceffects of global warming will wage on, withor without the support of Congress.Together, we the people can launch a cleanenergy revolution and affect the changesnecessary for a green and peaceful future.The age of the politician is over; the time forpeople power has come. As always, I thankyou for standing with us in our planet‘s mostdesperate hour.For the Earth,Philip D. Radford
