Pierce Transit recently posted to their website about a new partnership for “carbon neutral, responsibly sourced natural gas.” Concerned that fossil fuel industry greenwashing will delay our transition to a carbon free economy, we felt compelled to write them a letter that reads, in part:Dear Pierce County Transit,First of all, we want to thank you for providing us with public transportation options and striving to improve them all the time. We are very grateful! We know that a robust public transit system is a huge part of the solution to solving many of our environmental and climate related problems. As I’m sure you know, a large portion of our carbon emissions in WA state, around 40%, come from transportation. If we could get more people onto buses and trains we would be going in the right direction.We worry that the greenwashing going on in the fossil fuel industry will only cause further confusion and delay in switching to truly renewable energy sources. Natural gas was proposed as a “bridge fuel” to renewables back in the 1970’s, so it’s nothing new. And it’s still a fossil fuel.That is why we need to completely decarbonize our modes of transportation. We think it is so amazing that Pierce Transit already has electric buses, comprising 5% of the fleet! And we hope that number will rapidly increase, with electric buses replacing all other models. Wenatchee is piloting an inspiring rapid bus charging system and we hope you’ll follow those results closely.Thank you for providing public transportation here in Pierce County and please let us know how we can support your efforts to move your fleet towards true carbon-free operations!Sincerely,350 TacomaTo read our full letter: www.350tacoma.org/2021/11/30/pierce-transit-dont-fall-for-greenwashing/ ...

Closing out Thanksgiving week, one more from climate activist and deep ecologist Joanna Macy on the power of gratitude: Thankfulness, she tells us, "loosens the grip of the industrial growth society by contradicting its predominant message: that we are insufficient and inadequate. The forces of late capitalism continually tell us that we need more—more stuff, more money, more approval, more comfort, more entertainment. The dissatisfaction it breeds is profound. It infects people with a compulsion to acquire that delivers them into the cruel, humiliating bondage of debt. So gratitude is liberating. It is subversive. It helps us realize that we are sufficient, and that realization frees us." ... See MoreSee Less
