  1. 0:20 — 350.org marketing people should know better than to include this material. If you have to ask why I cannot help you. The rest is excellent.

  2. Peaceful direct action would be to minimize ones own carbon footprint and to help others do likewise. Noisy demonstrations are noise pollution not direct action.

  3. Bitte vormerken: Vom 4. bis 15. Mai 2016 wird eine Welle von Massenprotestaktionen weltweit die gefährlichsten Fossilenergie-Projekte ins Visier nehmen. Das Ziel lautet: Kohle, Öl und Gas müssen unter der Erde bleiben, die Energieversorgung muss auf 100% Eerneuerbare umgestellt werden!

  5. Foscil fuel, oil, carbon… what about agriculture? What about burgers & fries? Yogurt, ice cream and spareribs are doing more damage than petroleum. Talk about the whole problem. Watch Conspiracy.

  6. Fossil fuels will be a fundamental part of our society for decades to come, and our environmental and political laws should be grounded in this reality!

  7. Fossil fuels generate 70% of the world's electricity regardless of the time of day and the weather. They make it possible for farms to grow enough food to feed 7 billion people. They heat most people's homes.  They provide the energy to transport food from farms to supermarkets. They also provide the energy to make steel, glass, bricks, concrete, and everything else on an industrial scale. Fossil fuels are the foundation of the modern world.
