"We are standing in a window of opportunity -- a once-in-a-generation opportunity to totally overhaul our energy system.

The climate movement is on the rise, people power is beating back extreme energy from New York to Scotland, and renewable energy is cheaper than ever before. At the same time, tumbling oil prices -- which conventional wisdom says is bad news for the climate -- mean that the vast profits that underpin the fossil fuel industry’s power are on unusually shaky ground.

Suddenly fossil fuels are on the defensive. Suddenly tar sands and fracking don’t look like such hot investments anymore. Respectable, prudent fund managers are seriously considering taking their money out of fossil fuels, and many of them have already done so."

Feb 13 is Global Divestment Day. is asking for photos from communities all around the world.
I am interested in gathering a group of folks here in La Manzanilla, to be in a photograph that we can upload to the website showing communities around the globe in support of the movement.They are well organized, check this link:

If anybody wants to get together to talk about this, I am free Wednesday and Thursday..
