Brassy Kids To Their Governments: Our Climate. Our Future. Our Revolution.

Abby Zimet

This Is Cool Dept: A bunch of kids in California, arguing "we will inherit this world," have organized a Kids Vs. Global Warming campaign that began with a 13-year-old's video explaining climate change "in like a minute." iMatter, a non-profit project of Earth Island Institute, is holding a series of marches starting on Mother's Day. Partnering with "a coalition of awesome attorneys," it is also taking governments to court, based on the public trust doctrine that common resources like air and water are held in trust for the people. Kids these days: What will they do next?

We are raising our voices in court

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
