    We need robust public discussion on climate change NOW. Don't be held hostage by the oil & gas-funded DNC. Help us signal boost Howie's campaign so we can have a real discussion. Sign up to volunteer or donate TODAY!
  • I wonder what the Democrats might do if you were willing to support candidates in other parties - say the Green Party - who are much stronger on climate change. A lesson much of the rest of the world long ago absorbed.

    TONIGHT! How we move forward with climate solutions in NYS, an amazing conversation among 4 of us on the front lines of political action—biologist, state senator, youth leader, and NY Green Party cofounder—choreographed by the always penetrating Susan Arbetter. Not to be missed!

  • Seems more like it's working exactly how it's designed.

    Howie will be in Highland Park, NJ today at 6:00 pm for a Meet and Greet. Come meet the Original Green New Dealer and get involved
  • Come out to Red Hook! We'll be discussing the campaign from 7:00 to 9:00! Check the link below for the address.

  • From the NOAA, a satellite photograph of the estimated 74,000 fires raging across the Amazon right now. Socialist Bolivia bought a Boeing 747 to fight the fires, while Brazil's hyper-capitalist leadership fans the flames & does nothing in service to their agribusiness owners.
  • One more time, didn't hear it the first two!

  • When you advocate for policies that will end all human life on Earth but you pretend it's super progressive👇🤦‍♂️

  • Zerlina dogs can't vote.

  • The confluence of centuries of vicious exploitation of people and our ecosystems coming to a head with the physical limits of the planet, in the form of a grotesque monster turning the richest treasure of the country they govern into ash. In the USA, we too can relate.

  • Sick of shoveling down blood-drenched dollars from the defense contractors and richest corporations on earth who are burning our planet alive, Neera? Glad you can take a break to shout at people for voting for a project that provided solutions to the problems the world faces.

  • "Fascism was a fuzzy totalitarianism, a collage of different philosophical and political ideas, a beehive of contradiction." -Umberto Eco, in Ur-Fascism

  • John, I'm probably going to get more votes than you.

  • A suggestion for all the clowns whining about and people voting for candidates who have solutions to the dire threats humanity faces: you can fix that by campaigning on, and implementing when elected, a socialist Green New Deal.
