Nancy and joined the Climate March in Washington D.C. yesterday. Big crowd, reported at around 200,000 and it sure looked like it. The march went on for hours. What was interesting to was the breadth of people — lots of mainstream types, ethnically more mixed than demos we’ve been to in recent years. Lots of very creative, mostly handmade, signs, which I send along to you here for reposting. That said, the expressed politics, at least in signs and banners, were not very radical. Hardly any anti-capitalist signs or banners out of hundreds of thousands of signs.

If you know me, you know I tend to be optimistic about climate justice (some would say I’m in fact a hopeless idealist, or an incurable romantic, or even an insane utopian dreamer). Notwithstanding this (or is it because it’s all true?) I wanted to begin the year on a hopeful note – thus I’m taking this leap into the chartable waters of 2017.

April 12, 2017, Tacoma, WA

Tacoma has been one of the main dumping grounds for polluting industry in western Washington. We are home to nine EPA Superfund clean up sites.
