The Yes Men are brilliant satirical social activists who are adept at political impersonations, hoax interviews and using humor to highlight the absurdity of entrenched destructive corporate influence. The group is now making a documentary entitled: The Yes Men are Revolting. The movie chronicles some of the group’s clever disruptive actions, focusing on impending climate change disasters in store for our planet if we all continue to do nothing.
A visit to Alaska is an eye-opener for the environmentally sensitive. Its immense natural beauty is also a reminder that we humans have pretty much destroyed many such regions around the world. We all — not just environmental groups or nature lovers — must wake-up and initiate immediate action if we want to preserve what is left of such wilderness.
During the 20th century our average temperature rose 1.3°F, and since 1970 the increases have become even more intense. The planet is getting hotter, despite what a few wing nuts are still trying to claim, and tremendous amounts of scientific data exist to prove this.

Boyd Cohen, Ph.D. recently came up with a methodology to rank large cities in the U.S. based on how much they are preparing for or trying to counter climate change. He then went on to create and publish a top 10 list of the most “climate-ready” cities. While I think the term “climate-ready” is sort of a mistake, since he focuses more on efforts to stop climate change not adapt to it (which is what I would assume “climate-readiness” would be about), I think the overall idea and methodology looks great.
