Many older environmental groups were created to *stop* things from getting built. The big question facing Sierra Club & others today is β€œWhat do you do when building something produces an environmental good?”

If the state & local Clubs won't fight for building dense, livable economically accessible, low-carbon, mixed-use cities, they become at best irrelevant & at worst an enemy of climate action, engaged in predatory delay alongside Shell & the Kochs. modernluxury.com/san-francisco

Syria opinion: "what we need to be demanding is something more like an immediate exit of all imperialist powers from Syria and a negotiated end to the war with protections for civilians and disarming militias on all sides of the conflict and a democratic transition and reconstruction overseen by international monitors (probably, alas, with representation from all the imperial powers to make it work).Β "

Here’s the equation for an awesome compliment according to Marshall Rosenberg:
- Think of something someone has done to make your life wonderful (Do not use names like, you're smart, brilliant, or great, instead explain what they did to make your life so great)

- And finally what need of yours it fulfilled (eg, honesty, peace, connection, meaning, play etc)

So: another’s action+your feels+need it met+actually saying it= amazing compliment.
