Patrick Bond: Financial and environmental cost of Arctic methane release looms, as world leaders’ promises to payback carbon debt go unfunded.
Coalition Of The Willing
‘Coalition of the Willing’ is a collaborative animated film and web-based event about an online war against global warming in a ‘post Copenhagen’ world.
‘Coalition of the Willing’ has been Directed and produced by Knife Party, written by Tim Rayner and crafted by a network of 24 artists from around the world using varied and eclectic film making techniques. Collaborators include some of the world’s top moving image talent, such as Decoy, World Leaders and Parasol Island.
The film offers a response to the major problem of our time: how to galvanize and enlist the global public in the fight against global warming. This optimistic and principled film explores how we could use new Internet technologies to leverage the powers of activists, experts, and ordinary citizens in collaborative ventures to combat climate change. Through analyses of swarm activity and social revolution, ‘Coalition of the Willing’ makes a compelling case for the new online activism and explains how to hand the fight against global warming to the people.

If the much talked-about Tobin Tax would finally come into play, this money could also be used to help those countries facing climate change disasters. But as usual…much talk and no action. Same, old same.
We have to create our own internet without Corporate War Lord interference.

Coalition of the willing is a very interesting initiative.
Gotta sleep on this one…a lot to think about here!
This short clip from the Economist surprised me but is also nightmarish as the China stats are simply horrific
