Good article, Kate.

Our survival as a species depends on an alliance between climate justice activists and workers in the fossil fuel industries.

It seems ironic, though, doesn't it. Goes to show just how complex this entire situation is...

This is good news.

Too bad the writer cannot count votes.

It is true Big Oil has strong ties to the GOP. It is also true Big Oil has strong ties to the Democrats.
The Democrats could not block subsidies to big oil when they controlled both houses by large majorities because too many democrats voted against blocking big oil subsidies.

Be careful about overlooking the obvious.
