The Sierra Club Begins to Get Serious
The Sierra Club has decided to promote nonviolent civil disobedience for the first time. Before a climate habitable for humans collapsed was probably the right moment, I'd say. Now might be a time to support and encourage the Sierra Club. And now might be a time to nudge it further. The top destroyer of the environment right now is the U.S. military, and the Sierra Club has never wanted to challenge it, but almost began to indirectly when it recently objected to the U.S./South Korean construction of a naval base on Jeju Island. The Sierra Club is defending its decision to nonviolently resist evil on the grounds that doing so is "patriotic," as if patriotism is a force alligned with preservation of the earth. More progress is needed.
