in part because we’re not going to jail. That’s Jim Hansen in the middle (and me next to him) in 350 ties; we’re surrounded by some of our co-defendants. The crime? Sleeping out on the main public square in Boston USA last fall as part of a global warming protest (The students were making the point that they didn’t want their dorms heated by dirty energy). We each paid a fine, and the clerk made sure to tell Dr. Hansen, the planet’s foremost climatologist, that he wouldn’t have to report a criminal record on his next job application!  The Massachusetts campaign continues (details here). For now, many thanks to Craig Altemose for his leadership, and to Matt Pawa, Jim Budreau, and the Boston chapter of the National Lawyers Guild for their skillful representation.
