FRACKING’S JUST A BAD DREAM

ONLY LOVE WILL SAVE THIS PLACE

Unregulated capitalism and fossil fuel consumption are turning Earth into a “sacrifice zone”. Technology and denial will not save us. Only collective action will save us, and it’s starting to happen.

BIOSPHERE

Song. Many Americans think the Earth is to big for humans to change. The biosphere, where we live, is actually as thin as the skin of a peach! This is a simple piece of climate education for children of all ages. Planets like ours don’t come by very often. Let’s hold on to this one!
