Remember Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court decision that removed anti-corruption spending limits by corporations (essentially anyone) and opened the era of massive dark money election spending? Now we have the Dobbs decision, giving the federal government rights over women’s own bodies, condemning some of them to lifelong hardships and health impacts without consideration of the responsibilities of the men or the federal government involved in decisions of unwanted pregnancies. And the Court is now ready to rule on climate change. West Virginia v. the Environmental Protection Agency would restrict the federal government’s ability to limit carbon pollution, and potentially much more, sealing the fate of the planet. The radical right has strategically built and deployed legislative and judicial power over the past few decades while progressives work fragmentedly on immediate issues. We are going to continue to lose our rights, our health, and even our planet unless progressives shift from tactics to strategies and work to build a stronger base. We need to be active in the long game. Find resources to activate your friends, workplace, community, and policymakers in this June eUpdate.

Every Person, Everywhere: Climate and Health at the Top of the World

“Here in the polar regions, it’s easy to be pessimistic when it comes to climate change. Study after study shows that the Arctic is warming as much as four times faster than other regions of the planet. And yet, I also draw inspiration from the science being conducted here. From ice core drilling to studies designed to estimate the rate at which the ice sheet is melting and breaking apart to predict the rate of sea-level rise globally, my experience here will offer additional opportunities for connection around the impacts of climate change on our planet.”
