Tired of the McPalin and Obiden lovefest around "Clean Coal," nuclear and other fossil fuels? Thinking we can do better than "Drill, Baby, Drill?" Want to challenge Corporate America's false solutions to climate change? Do you want to connect the dots between social justice issues and climate change?

It's time to move past the elections and begin building a grassroots radical climate movement here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Chevron, PG&E and a host of other climate destroying energy companies are either headquartered here or have operations here. In Richmond, Chevron's refinery is processing oil from conflict zones all over the world while poisoning the local community and emitting tons of carbon into the atmosphere.

If we want climate criminals, we don't have to look very far. For solutions, we need to look beyond elections and politicians and build a grassroots climate movement to uproot the foundations of climate change and climate injustice.

Rising Tide is an international network of climate activists working on radical solutions to climate change using things like community solidarity, direct action and Climate Convergences to forward those goals. You can check out RT’s principles here- http://www.risingtidenorthamerica.org/wordpress/principles/

A local chapter has recently formed--Rising Tide Bay Area. Rising Tide Bay Area is having a film screening (short), discussion and organizing meeting on Wedsnesday, Oct 22 at 7:30pm at the Pirate Cat in the Mission.

To get plugged in, just show up.
