Your Daily Dose of BuzzFlash at Truthout, via my pal Mark Karlin:
[T]he same banks that nearly turned America into an economic dust bowl in 2008 are the ones financing the earth-destroying companies that promote toxic climate change like heroin to junkies. [...]
[Rev. Billy] Talen is hopeful that awareness is spreading that the banks too big to fail are failing our planet:
Everyone in the precinct house wanted an explanation of our action. When we said that Chase was financing climate disruption -- the cops agreed! The thing is... we believe that employees inside the big banks also know this. Most Americans know that the biosphere is dying by human violence, whether it is chemicals, bulldozer blades, or outright population growth. We are all behind this great structure that we cannot surmount; this corporate wall. But we know that the Earth crisis is a kind of cry. The Earth cries out to us -- or through us....We are The Earth's cry as we shout in the banks that finance all that death.
The good reverend of the "church of stop shopping" has a distinct point: "shouting inside a bank about its climate-killing investments is a good thing."
