13 of our friends were arrested today in British Columbia, after peacefully blocking the railroad tracks where trains were carrying coal to the Pacific for shipment to Asia. At least five of the day’s scheduled six coal trains didn’t make the journey. One of those arrested was prominent Canadian climate scientist Mark Jaccard. Here’s what he told the CBC: “I now ask myself how our children, when they look back decades from now, will have expected us to have acted today,” he said.”When I think about that, I conclude that every sensible and sincere person, who cares about this planet and can see through lies and delusion motivated by money, should be doing what I and others are now prepared to do.”
