But you're not powerless to stop it.

Look at how people shut down Teck Cominco's tar sands (dilbit oil) project in Alberta.

Look at how the fossil fuel export pipelines that will destroy the climate are being shutdown.

It is in the very nature of us, in our infinite complexity, in our refusal to stop doing what is right when those compelled by greed tell us to surrender, that we win.

Even just living in a city means you use about 1/10th the resources you would otherwise use. Your action of biking, your parking your plug-in electric car at the first available spot and walking 3-5 blocks instead of increasing congestion.

Even just recycling soda cans.

All these things matter.
