TODAY'S NEWS: We're Screwed!


 
Today the YES MEN, those fabulous culture jamming pranksters, have done it again, with a squadron of supporting activists.   The cause this time was raising awareness around Climate Change. The prank was to replace thousands of copies of the New York Post in boxes throughout New York City with a hoax paper, sporting the bold headline: WE'RE SCREWED

City report says extreme storms, flooding, deadly heat waves coming soon if we don't make changes fast

 

The New York City Panel on Climate Change, led by an elite team of NASA scientists and climate experts from Columbia, CUNY and Rutgers, has concluded that unless carbon emissions are drastically reduced all over the world, New York faces dangerous increases in temperature (up to 7.5 degrees), extreme weather (hurricanes and intense storms) and sea level rise (as much as 4.5 feet).

STAND WITH VAN JONES



Today's blog is by Fierce Light visionary Judy Rebick:
