http://democracynow.org – Two activists featured in Josh Fox’s new documentary, “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change,” join us to discuss the role of direct action in fighting global warming. Aria Doe is co-founder and executive director of the Action Center for Education and Community Development in Far Rockaway, Queens, in New York City, and Tim DeChristopher founded the Climate Disobedience Center after spending 21 months in federal custody for posing as a bidder in 2008 to prevent oil and gas drilling on thousands of acres of public land in his home state of Utah. We also speak with Fox about his plans to take the film on the road and distribute it for free as a tool in the climate justice movement.
