Lobster Boat Blockade Of Coal Plant Leads District Attorney To Local weather Management
When i met my husband Geof Day, his work as a climate activist launched me to some attention-grabbing people concerned with 350.org. Lately, 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 their bold action of blockading the biggest coal-fired power plant on the East Coast with an old lobster boat. Last week, Sam Sutter, a neighborhood District Attorney, agreed that because the actions of Ward and O’Hara at Brayton Level had been fairly reflective of a broader hazard (that of climate change), all expenses, beyond paying some minor damages, ought to be dropped. Later, in a stunning transfer, that same DA–whereas waving a replica of Rolling Stone that includes an article by 350.org founder Bill McKibben–acknowledged that local weather change is “considered one of the greatest crises our planet has ever faced,” that political leadership on this matter has been “sorely lacking,” and that he can be becoming a member of them at the upcoming Folks’s Climate March.
