Make sure to set aside time this evening to watch Frontline’s Heat on PBS, a documentary by Martin Smith who “has won every major award in television including two duPont Columbia Gold Batons and four Emmys. He’s also been a three-time recipient of the George Polk Award for Investigative Journalism and a four-time winner of the Writer’s Guild Award. Smith is a member of the Oversees Press Club and the Council on Foreign Relations.”
Eighteen months in the making, the documentary examines how the world, both developed and developing is responding to the global climate crisis. The news is frightening. Once again short-term economic gain is triumphing over science and and long term policy considerations. As Smith himself says:
Despite increasing talk about “going green,” across the planet, environmental concerns are still taking a back seat to shorter-term economic interests.

Watch the show, then take action, political action and if the politicians ignore you, try civil disobedience. And if you engage in civil disobedience and get arrested, don’t plead guilty like they did recently in Virginia. Plead innocent, defend yourselves and win as they did at Kingsnorth in the UK. There can be NO legal justification for Climaticide.
