The People’s Reconstruction Series is a sequence of educational encounters, organized by Occupy University, that address several issues related to Hurricane Sandy. Each encounter will gather at Bluestockings (172 Allen St. New York, NY 10002) and feature a presentation followed by horizontal discussion. We hope to provide a space for people to collectively reflect on the politics of climate disaster in New York City.

More info: RSVP on Facebook

Encounter 1, “Rising Water”
Tuesday, January 8, 2013
*What are the politics of climate change at local, national, and international levels?

Encounter 2, “Individual Consequences”

*How are individuals affected financially, emotionally, and otherwise by climate change? Specific emphasis will be given to communities in New York City impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Encounter 3, “Community Response”
Thursday, January 24, 2013
*What can communities do to address immediate threats and consequences of climate change as well as address systemic injustices disasters like Sandy uncover.

Think beyond the immediate climate events as they are only hints of what may happen. The 1% banksters drive this state of ignorance that so many US citizens thrive on with no wish to understand where we are all heading.

TPTB have effectively taken the pollution issue and destroyed it.

Neither side is willing to address the effects of pollution, regardless if its messing with the climate.

D wants to tax you and do nothing. R wants to regulate you and do nothing. It makes it hard to get involved when those are the two main options.

The Power of the people has yet to be unlocked. The two parties are in fact run by one group. It is not a democracy and hasn't been for a very long time.

Both parties are corrupt. The system is corrupt with lies and spin surrounding most aspects of Government both national and local. Any alternative to D or R is shot down, with the puppet masters aided by public ignorance carefully groomed through the media over many decades.

There has to be another way or we will die off.

The US is responsible for a massive amount of destruction to the biosphere being a chief polluter per head of population still , 4 times worse than China. The US legacy of pollution is a massive contributor to climate change acceleration.

Yet we argue about wanting more while the 1% strip out wealth from the rest across the globe as well as here.

The concept of fairness or morality just doesn't feature in our governanace.

The private criminal bankers once based in Europe now rule the US and beyond but no crime is beyond them.

Climate is the crunch where either Banksters get wiped out by the rest, or we all get wiped. out.

Fear is their biggest weapon to control the rest.

Collectively we have nothing to loose but individually we can be made to suffer.

Information is critical to understanding. When enough understand then possibilities change.

OWS is a massive shift to be built on. World wide awareness is growing.

The Bank of North Dakota works well for its people because it is state owned.

Get your head around that for a start. There are many myths to be expelled.

Alright - continue the process of looking forward - to outlining issues that need to be addressed - to making plans and activities to forward actions to take as we travel forward in time ( hope that made sense ) - we need to take a long view - global warming is happening - Climate Changes will continue - much of it sudden - through storms and weather pattern shifts due to the increased heat energy being placed into to our total environment. This is a process of many decades and it will be at times unpredictable - so we must do our best to address change in strong flexible and robust new designs for building - single family as well as multiple family as well as business and industry.

So much work to begin and continue as we go forward - so much to improve upon and change outright.

We have only just begun a never ending process - let us all be as positive and flexible as we can.

The storm of the century in 1992 (or 1993) - did that prompt an in-depth discussion about climate change? How about the 1938 hurricane?
How about hurricane Kyle in 2008?

East coast storms may be even worst in 2013, the Arctic is getting off to a slow freeze.

I feel like we all would be better off using our resources to build, maintain and defend Tesla's solar power plant in North Africa to power the whole planet. If people can get free power anywhere in the world with an antennae, there would be no demand for the dirty energy and it would go away. Positive action instead of negative. Building instead of attempting to destroy.

A man wrote a letter to the IRS: “I have been unable to sleep knowing that I have cheated on my income tax. I understated my taxable income and have enclosed a check for $200.00. If I still can’t sleep, I will send the rest.”
