Rocky Revolution: Climate Protection, Ending Corruption, Exposing Mass Deception by the Media
In the aftermath of Sandy, the climate crisis is virtually ignored by the corporate media and the corporatist presidential candidates. To ignore climate disruption caused by our reliance on fossil fuels is like dismissing the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. — but with greater long-term consequences for billions of people. (For an excellent analysis of the connection between climate change and Sandy, see Mark Hertsgaard’s excellent article here at The Nation.)
How long will the causes and catastrophic consequences of climate change be ignored?
We must support leaders who understand the most urgent issue for earth and its inhabitants.
We have the unique opportunity to support a real leader on this issue — someone who received the EPA’s Climate Protection Award and was named “Greenest Mayor” and “One of the 15 Greenest Politicians in the World.” Read more about Rocky’s proven environmental record here.
A new campaign video, produced by an amazing volunteer, is now available. Please watch and share:
Last week, Rocky gave a compelling presentation, ripping into the corporate news media and outlining the ways in which the media’s mass deception degrades our democracy. Watch here:
No matter your political affiliation, read this powerful interview in Truthout.
And don’t just listen to what candidates SAY during a campaign (remember “Hope and Change”?). Rather, focus on who they really are by examining their experience, their demonstration of commitment to the issues important to you, and their effectiveness at getting the job done. No one compares to Rocky Anderson in terms of his lifelong commitment to economic, social, and environmental justice. See his Wikipedia page and compare his record with the other candidates.
Even if Rocky doesn’t win the election, your support for him will loudly proclaim your demand for climate protection leadership, an end to government corruption, and media integrity. It will also help keep up the momentum for a people’s democratic movement far beyond the election.
