Cheaters

"Here's the bottom line: the fossil fuel industry gets away with running our planet because of their money. They make so much of it because, in a word, they cheat – they don't pay for producing the most dangerous pollution the planet has ever seen. Everyone else cleans up after themselves." –B.M.

Ready to Do More

"We've sold out every show so far, which I didn't necessarily expect, which means we've been able to connect with thousands of folks. Word from our field organizers is that everyone is leaving quite ready to do more, which is exactly what we need right now." –B.M.

Impressive Start

"Our West Coast leg was just amazing: out of the gate with five straight sold-out shows, driving through the impressive beauty of the Pacific coast on our biodiesel bus – a truly wonderful start to the tour." –B.M.

Growing the Movement

"We have a little tradition for every show: 'Family photos' that help show how much our movement is growing as we travel the country. I must say, seeing this photo from our first stop in Seattle was incredibly impressive, and every show since has been just as packed and full of energy." –B.M.
