001 - Climate Defiance v US Department of Energy @ The Atlantic Festival 2023
On September 28th 2023 protesters at the Atlantic Festival stormed the stage where the Executive Director of the Department of Energy, Carla Frisch, was being interviewed about climate change. This episode shares why, and what they could have done instead.
I wrote a related article to the protest here: https://www.chrisyoko.com/articles/climate-defiance-vs-us-department-of-energy-at-the-atlantic-festival-2023 It goes into more specifics about the pipeline itself, and the almost impossible needle is has to thread between propagating environmental recklessness and human suffering while acknowledging that poor improvement is still better than a perpetually delayed "perfect".
