1. "A Mother's Letter to TransCanada & Big Oil"


    from Phyllis Cole-Dai Added 228 1 2

    "A Mother's Letter to TransCanada & Big Oil" was created by Phyllis Cole-Dai (www.phylliscoledai.com). It was inspired by a conversation with her 10-year-old son about the Keystone XL pipeline and tar sands mining. She's selling its sound track (her solo-piano single, "Circling") through a variety of digital musical outlets. Every penny earned will be donated to Keystone XL pipeline and tar sands resistance, with a special focus on native efforts. Buy "Circling" for 99₵ at CD Baby and you'll donate 90₵ to the resistance. The track is #10 on the album playlist at this link: cdbaby.com/cd/phylliscoledai2/Circling. Since it pays the best royalty, CD Baby is by far the best place to buy this track, but "Circling" is also available from other outlets like iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, etc. Phyllis Cole-Dai is co-founder of Fast for the Earth (www.fastfortheearth.com) and curator of the mindfulness poetry collection "A Year of Being Here" (www.ayearofbeinghere.com).

            A roster of 48 protesters, including climate scientist James Hansen, actor Daryl Hannah, civil rights leader Julian Bond,youth activist Maura Cowley, and environmental advocate Robert Kennedy Jr, were arrested on Wednesday after handcuffing themselves to the gates of the White House to demand that Barack Obama shut down the Keystone XL pipeline project. The protests, while entirely orderly and co-ordinated in advance with local police, delivered a dope reminder to Obama the morning after his state of the union address of the enormous political challenges ahead as he tries to make good on his promise to act on climate change.
