Our environment, our economic system, and our political system are all broken. In many ways so broken that there is no option but to rebuild anew, or find a new method -- one that is inclusive, truly responsive to the needs of the people, and that respects the environment, the relationship of humanity to the non-human world.

While the activities of the Occupy Movement across the nation have taken on much more than environmental issues (rightly so), it is exactly this sort of indignancy and public action which is befitting the severity of the myriad green issues we face.
