In one of the Creative Greenius’ most highly read posts, written on July 29 of this year, I said there was no difference between today’s global warming deniers and the heads of the tobacco industry a few years back.
Yesterday my position was correctly stated by Rep. Jay Inslee a democrat from the great Pacific Northwest state of Washington who tore the authors of SuperWeakEconomics a new one for all their lies and hack writing in their new, already discredited book.
From our friends at GreenObservers.org who out hustled and outproduced every TV news station in the L.A. market.
These people are simply incredible. Watch this video then get on your bike and start pedaling.
I salute the L.A. Greensters and the equally awe inspiring Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition for being the ultimate biking gods of the Southern California universe.
Thanks for being a tremendous role model for the rest of us and thanks for operating our great Bike Valet last Saturday. Because of partners like you, we were the largest climate action ever staged in the history of Southern California.
I’ve been married to Debra Bushweit Galliani since August 2, 1981. There may have been beauty queens and bikini babes galore on the beach with us for our International Day of Climate Action but I only have eyes for this girl starting the wave from the front of the line!
That's Debra in the red 350 shirt she hand painted. She's the VP of the Southern California Horticultural Society and a long term board member of the South Coast Botanic Gardens.
I’ve been a proud member-supporter of KPCC FM 89.3 for many years and they are my NPR station of choice here in Los Angeles. I listen to them every single morning and have since 1993. I love Airtalk with Larry Mantle, I love the Patt Morrision show, I love Off Ramp with John Rabe on the weekends, I love Steve Julian with the local news and I love Kitty Felde reporting from Washington DC.
What I didn’t love was how they ignored the largest climate action in the history of Southern California and instead sent a reporter to cover the mindless dancing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller at L.A. Live this weekend instead of covering the real news. That was a decision made the multiple Golden Mike award winning Nick Roman, news director and someone I met while doing weekly commentaries on KLON FM88 in Long Beach during 1983-1985.
Hard to imagine that decision being in the best interest of you, me or anyone else in the listening audience isn’t it? Especially in light of all the coverage given the now dead pop star since his overdose death from drug use.
I had to phone into the Patt Morrison show today to spin the topic of the Pew Poll on Global Warming to focus this story where it needs to be. You can listen for yourself right here. My call comes at the 9:53 mark in the program.

Pro press photog, John Longenecker took the beautiful shot of our Amazing Waving Human Tide Line yesterday in Manhattan Beach.
Then take a visit to the Vimeo Video page John set up with 8 different news interviews shot at the event:
The L.A. bird cage liner devoted half a page above the fold in today’s paper to this:
Always nice to be in the L.A. Times but this coverage is clueless and snarky. The paper missed the money shot and they do not get the 350 message. The L.A. Times is dying and they’re taking the climate with them as they keep cutting down trees and paying an army of people to drive highly polluting vehicles to deliver the news a day late and several dollars short. This wouldn’t be happening if Sam Zell had any idea of what he was doing as owner of the paper. But he doesn’t and he’ll ride this once great paper straight into the grave as his carbon footprint just keeps growing bigger and bigger.
The best reporters and news staff are gone from the Los Angeles Times now and the only people left are those who cannot get work elsewhere. Some of them are great writers and good journalists but there isn’t a single editor or person in management worth working for anymore.
RIP L.A. Times. You didn’t just bury the lead. You buried yourselves.
You all know how much I like to read the Daily Breeze on line. This morning’s Daily Breeze coverage includes this great photo by Breeze staff photographer, Sean Hiller
As part of the International Day of Climate Change on Saturday, participants line up and do the tidal wave for an airplane covering the event near the Manhattan Beach Pier. Organizers said 5,200 events were scheduled around the globe to mark the day. (Sean Hiller Staff Photographer)
