US Social Forum – 2nd Edition of Hoodwinked in the Hothouse available in Detroit!
Rising Tide North America and Carbon Trade Watch are pleased to announce the release of the 2nd edition of Hoodwinked in the Hothouse: False Solutions to Climate Change.
The publication is a close-to-comprehensive guidebook to bogus climate change solutions, covering more than 20 technologies and policy approaches pushed by corporations and industry. It includes contributions from the Energy Justice Network, The Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives, ETC Group, the Indigenous Environmental Network, Movement Generation, and International Rivers.
A more formal announcement and press release, along with details for ordering the booklet by mail, and a link to the online version of the booklet in both English and Spanish will be forthcoming in July, but for now we wanted to send a special announcement to everyone attending the US Social Forum that you can pick up a copy of the booklet here in Detroit.
Here’s how you can get the booklet in Detroit:
Stopping by our table at the USSF in the Cobo Hall.
At the “Direct Action Strategies for Climate Justice and Community Resilience” workshop we are co-sponsoring with Movement Generation, the Ruckus Society, Zero Waste Detroit, and the Mobilization for Climate Justice West (Thursday, Jun 24, 10:00am Cobo Hall DO-7A).
At the EcoJustice PMA (Friday, June 25, 1-5:30pm in Cobo Hall D3-28).
At the Tar Sands PMA (Wednesday, Jun 23 2010, 1:00pm Cobo Hall: W2-70)
We’ll probably have them at many other climate justice oriented workshops as well.
We are actively seeking individuals who would be able to take several hundred copies or more for distribution outside the US and Canada; please let me know if you might be able to help.
We also intend to have a limited number of the Spanish language version of Hoodwinked available; please contact me for more details.
Lastly, if you are interested in taking a bunch of booklets (ie, more than 25) please let me know in advance if possible (or visit our table in Cobo Hall) so we can make arrangements.

Confronting the root causes of climate change
“If we hold up banners saying climate change kills and we want more government action, the very power groups driving the destruction will cheer and might give us even more carbon finance or agrofuels. Instead, we need to mobilise against the false solutions and for real, meaningful actions that will actually cut emissions and deliver climate justice.”
