Short Description: 
Taking on climate change deniers by dismantling their pernicious misconceptions about climate change
During the past week we witnessed 400,000 people marching in the People's Climate March in New York City, while many more mobilized in cities around the world (including 4,000 in Portland). During the United Nations climate summit two days later President Obama gave a forceful speech challenging the rest of the world to seriously address climate change now. From just reading the news it would seem that the world is finally on board to confront the dire threats posed by a climate in chaos. But believe it or not there are still powerful forces out there trying to stop this movement through lies and obfuscation - and many of these people are members of the United States House of Representatives.

Bruce Schneier - The Internet, Privacy & Power

Edward Snowden's remarkable revelations leave no doubt. Big Brother is here. The National Security Agency's PRISM program is a clandestine mass electronic surveillance and data mining system. In plain English: it enables state spying on citizens. The American Civil Liberties Union says, "The things we do and say online leave behind ever-growing trails of personal information. With every click, we entrust our conversations, emails, photos, and much more to Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Yahoo. But what happens when the government asks these corporations to hand over their users' private information?" What happens to our rights and expectations of privacy?
