Last week an oil train carrying explosive Bakken crude derailed and caught fire in Fayette County, West Virginia. Forty-eight hours earlier, on Saturday, an oil train carrying toxic Alberta tar sands derailed and spilled in Ontario, Canada.
Todd Paglia, Forest Ethics executive director, released the following statement:“Oil trains are simply too dangerous for the rails. Whether it is explosive Bakken crude or toxic Alberta tar sands this extreme oil cannot be transported safely by train. Twenty-five million Americans live in the blast zone and nearly everyone else lives downstream of an oil train route.
Matt Krogh is the Director, Extreme Oil Campaign for Forest Ethics
With over 12 years experience in nonprofit work and advocacy, Matt joined ForestEthics in August 2013 to direct a new campaign targeting tar sands on the West Coast of North America, Tar Sands SOS. Most recently as the North Sound Baykeeper at RE Sources for Sustainable Communities in Bellingham, Washington, Matt has spent the last three years fighting against Gateway Pacific and other proposed coal terminals on the West Coast. As a freelancer, he and his father co-authored a book on integrity and principle-based decision making—both critical components of effective advocacy.

Lester Greene was born in Germany and raised in Texas by a military father and a stay-at-home mother. In his younger days, Lester always enjoyed playing sports competitively, until he quickly developed a knack for writing and rapping. Always a natural behind the microphone, it was only a matter of time before he made the transition to acting.
With very little training, Lester has already worked with some powerhouse directors: Phil Allocco, Eric McGinty, Scott Chinn Ben Baker, Kevin Baggott, to name a few.
He has also written and produced songs for IBM and a few feature films. Currently, Lester just completed commercial campaigns for ESPN, NFL, LOGO, and M&T Bank.
Lester just completed and released his first book: "Getting Your Act Together," and he just finished shooting two feature films: "Mad Full of Dreams" (by Kevin Baggott) and "Life is Too Short (by Antoine Allen).
If you're only paying attention to a child's challenging behavior, then modifying or medicating the behavior will make the most sense. But behavior is what's happening downstream. If you paddle upstream -- toward the problems that are causing the behavior -- other intervention strategies start to make a lot more sense.

Climate Action With Russell Greene
Understanding the Fifth UN IPCC Predicament and Response
The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was finalized in 2014.
Join me with my guest Atmospheric Scientist Peter Kalmus this Sunday to discuss what the report tells us and how we each may choose to respond.
Peter Kalmus is an atmospheric scientist studying the role of clouds in global warming. After graduating from Harvard with a physics degree, he worked for four years as a computer programmer on Wall Street before returning to science and earning his PhD in physics from Columbia University. After five years as an astrophysicist at Caltech, he switched fields into atmospheric science.
Being the father of two young boys motivates him to explore how we can appropriately respond -- as individuals -- to the massive problem of global warming. One of the many things he's done is to almost completely stop burning fossil fuels himself, by examining his own life and replacing fossil-fueled activities with bicycling, driving on veggie oil, remote participation in meetings, and a fossil-fuel-free diet. He calls this ongoing process of self-examination and self-change "be-cycling," and he says it makes him happier.
