Neil Young Wants You To Keep Paying Attention To Standing Rock
Huffington Post - 2 months
As temperatures continued to descend farther below the freezing point at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota near the end of November, Neil Young and his girlfriend, Daryl Hannah, posted a long message on Facebook urging President Barack Obama to side with the protesters and halt construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. “We are calling upon you, President Barack Obama, to step in and end the violence against the peaceful water protectors at Standing Rock immediately,” Young and Hannah wrote at the time. The couple also asked readers to continue to show up and increase the size of the movement. At the time, police had been firing rubber bullets and water cannons at the peaceful protesters, largely made up of various Native American tribes asserting that the pipeline would affect their clean water supply. (These oil pipelines tend to have spills, and lo and behold, on Dec. 12, just about 150 miles from the Standing Rock site, a North Dakota pipeline spilled an est ...

Photography and words by David Gregory. For as long as I've been a photographer, I've always been attracted to subjects that are whimsical and irreverent. I've never felt the compulsion to create world changing images, or work for Magnum - although like many others I probably would if given the chance - instead, I grew up admiring the likes of Arbus, Friedlander, and Eggleston. The Abject; the Abstract, and the Other held far more fascination for me. My work has changed many times over many years, as many photographers' images do, but often, at the heart of it all are people that just refuse to comply; seemingly ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Fuelled in part by my own feelings of disconnection with many mainstream social activities, but never really stepping over some invisible line in the sand into eccentricity myself, I often feel rewarded by working with such people and find it balances my own idiosyncrasies with the conventional day to day work life we all ha ...

Shame on the <i>Star Wars</i> Body Shamers
Huffington Post - about 1 year
I guess the goodwill couldn't last too long. Just as Star Wars: The Force Awakens is being greeted by critical acclaim, record box-office earnings and praise for its compelling lead character, the dark side of fandom has arisen -- very much like the movie's First Order from the ashes of the Empire -- and is blasting Carrie Fisher for her appearance, so much so that the actress/writer herself felt the need to respond through social media. As you can see in the linked article, the troglodytes in question have then doubled down, suggesting a variation of "you were asking for it" since she agreed to appear in the movie in the first place. It is a morbidly fascinating phenomenon to witness the claiming of ownership of an entertainment franchise by certain segments of fans who blow collective gaskets when the newest installment does not meet every single one of their impossible expectations, or worse, dares to shake up the status quo. Author Chuck Wendig received a taste of this when he me ...

U.S. actor Daryl Hannah draws a handmade sign before taking part in a protest against the Keystone XL oil pipeline, outside the White House in Washington, DC, August 30, 2011. As I write this, global leaders are at the COP21 in Paris wrestling with elementary concepts like cooperation, responsibility and consequences in an attempt to address the climate crisis and protect all life on Earth—for the 21st time. It is critical that nations of the world come together and finally limit greenhouse gas emissions to avoid a disastrous rise in global surface temperatures.

A Historic Climate Win, Keystone XL's Unfinished Business and Obama's Shaky Climate Legacy
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Future generations may look back on November 6, 2015 as the day the climate tide started to turn. For that was the day when people power trumped corporate greed in a historic climate win. President Obama nixed the northern section of the Keystone XL Pipeline due to activist opposition, but tar sands oil is still flowing into the US. (Photo: tarsandaction) After years of fierce grassroots resistance, pipeline fighters everywhere are celebrating a historic victory over the northern leg of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The president's denial of a cross-border permit to build Keystone North is a monumental win for the climate justice movement and a stirring testament to the power of the people united. For his part, President Obama is to be commended for finally taking this stand, even if belatedly and with tar sands already flowing through the new leg of the Keystone XL southern pipeline that he approved.

Q: Tarantino-Inspired Works by Shaine Schroeder
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Ask me to describe film director and writer Quentin Tarantino in a single word and I'll pass. It's an impossible task. His films crashed their way into our cinematic psyche like a bloody bowling ball through pins of cookie-cutter movie formulas. The material he puts forth overflows with grit, beauty, humor, tragedy and countless other layers. Strike! I would also pass if you asked me the same of visual artist Shaine Schroeder, who is currently gearing to unveil a Tarantino-inspired collection, appropriately and simply titled Q. Whether deliberately or coincidentally, the timing couldn't be better, as Mr. Tarantino has been a bit of a hot news item recently due to his outspoken views against police brutality. His words have not landed him in the midst of only controversy but boycott threats as well. As unshakeable as a character of his own creation, Q continues to ally himself with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Life imitates art. John Gascot: What prompted you to create a Tarantin ...

How an Unlikely Coalition of Environmental Activists Stopped Keystone XL
Huffington Post - over 1 year
A decade ago, Susan Casey-Lefkowitz got one of her first eye-opening looks at the destruction wrought by the fast-expanding Canadian tar sands industry. A lawyer who specialized in international environmental issues, Casey-Lefkowitz was now a policy advocate at the nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council, focused on the group's growing work in Canada. Sitting in a darkened hotel conference room with allies from Canadian activist groups, Casey-Lefkowitz (the only U.S. representative in the room) watched a set of slides showing the extent of the industry's ugly spread in northern Alberta, and she knew that the environmental movement would need to mobilize against the devastation -  and its potential consequences for the entire planet. As she would later describe it: "I didn't want to face my grandchildren 20 years down the road and know that I had made the wrong choice at a crossroads moment for fighting climate change." Tar sands weren't an entirely new threat. At leas ...

Laying Pipe in The Lower 48
Huffington Post - about 2 years
No one was surprised when the U.S. Senate recently passed a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, and though a new video featuring Julie Louis-Dreyfus urges all to sign the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) petition advising Obama to veto the pipeline, which he will likely do, sooner or later the black snake from Alberta will penetrate the heartland of the U.S. and pipe will be laid. It is said, "When the snake spirit animal shows up, pay attention to how you use your energy, and where you draw it from." The sinister serpent will cross many paths as it winds its way down from Canada, cleaving it's southern path, invading the expansive pristine wilderness of North American... well, maybe not exactly pristine since there's already about 2.6 million miles of oil and gas pipelines throbbing just beneath our feet. Among the many voices in the ongoing XL pipeline debate are those of aboriginal communities on both sides of the border who will be directly affected. Pre ...

Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer, U.S. Lawmakers Push Keystone Pipeline Approval
Huffington Post - about 3 years
WASHINGTON (AP) — An unusual coalition of lawmakers from both parties, labor and business leaders, veterans groups and Canada's ambassador to the United States joined forces Tuesday to push for quick approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Five Democrats joined Republicans at a Capitol news conference to urge President Barack Obama to approve the pipeline following a State Department report last week that raised no major environmental objections. The $7 billion pipeline would carry oil from tar sands in western Canada to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast. The project has lingered for more than five years and has become a symbol of the political debate over climate change. Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer also spoke at the news conference, along with labor union officials and a retired Navy admiral. A top oil industry lobbyist attended the event but did not speak. Environmental groups that oppose the pipeline have been making a lot of "noise," Doer said, but polls show a majority ...

Celebrities Demand Obama, State Officials Ban Fracking Now
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The campaign to end fracking just got star-studded. In a series of videos calling for an end to fracking, celebrity environmental advocates demanded several elected officials explain “what the frack” they’re thinking by supporting the controversial gas- and oil-extracting process. Celebrities including Marisa Tomei, Darren Criss, Lance Bass, Daryl Hannah, Amy Smart, Hayden Panettiere and Wilmer Valderrama star in the videos calling out President Obama and governors Jerry Brown of California, Andrew Cuomo of New York and John Hickenlooper of Colorado for not banning fracking. Governor Brown recently signed into law California's first fracking regulations, requiring oil companies to obtain fracking permits, alert neighbors, test groundwater, publicly disclose chemicals used and study the fracking's environmental impact. But environmental activists say the practice needs to be banned outright. Governor Cuomo is currently weighing whether to ban or allow fracking, prompting env ...

It's Time To Free the Arctic 30 & Stand Up Against Fossil Fuel Extraction Everywhere [CO-AUTHORED WITH DARYL HANNAH, ACTRESS & ACTIVIST]
Huffington Post - over 3 years
All around the globe, record numbers of people from all walks of life are being thrown into jails because they are standing up to protect the most basic of human needs -- uncontaminated water, unpolluted lands, and a liveable climate free from the ramifications of extreme fossil fuel extraction. If the greed-driven fossil fuel extraction corporations -- and the governments that do their bidding to assure sustained record profits -- don't stop endangering our critical and already-compromised life support systems, there is little doubt that the numbers of individuals standing up will grow exponentially. People are increasingly recognizing the critical necessity to safeguard our communities and our ecosystems, and growing numbers around the world are taking that bold step to engage in the time-honored tradition of peaceful civil disobedience as a means of alerting others to the dangers that threaten us all.

Has TransCanada Labeled <i>You</i> an "Eco-Terrorist"?

I am one peace-loving patriot who is not going to stand for having my integrity impugned by a foreign corporation I never invited into my country in the first place. If you haven't heard the disgusting news about TransCanada's collusion with a Federal Bureau of Investigation/Department of Homeland Security Fusion Center, desperately targeting me and other peaceful climate activists as possible candidates for "terrorism" charges, you can read about it here on DeSmog Blog. Thanks to Nebraska activists filing a Freedom of Information Act request, you can see all the PowerPoint presentations for yourself on Tar Sands Blockade's website. It is pathetic to see courageous, nonviolent U.S. citizens being desperately targeted by this transnational corporate thug. Even Daryl Hannah and a Texas great grandmother (who was labeled an "eco-terrorist" by TransCanada for having the temerity to defend her land) are pictured. 59,520 individuals who signed the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance as of Apr ...
