Brave new world: Americans are learning to live with climate change | Grist
The Great American Road Trip — it’s a rite of passage, a national pastime, and increasingly, a tool for spreading the word about looming climate catastrophe. Each summer, a motley parade of veggie buses, vintage motorcycles, and bicycles circulates around the country, its participants out to preach the gospel of green living, and perhaps learn a thing or two in the process.

Two of these eco-minded road trippers, Kristen Howard and Allie Goldstein, recently dropped by the Grist offices in Seattle to tell us about their adventures aboard a 2000 Toyota Sienna minivan.

Is very possible that a major reason for OFA’s recent failures, is that average citizens are far more interested in talking about the still failing economy, atrocious jobs market, and mandatory health insurance. The failed rally is worth noting, because it was a rally aimed at the least important issue among voters, citizens, and working families. OFA just learned that factoid in a tremendously embarrassing way.
