"When interviewer Alex Bogusky suggested it was hard to difficult to respond to critics of increased emissions regulation, Gore replied: 'It is no more difficult that it was for southerners to talk about the evil of racism.'
"Project 21 spokesman Jerome Hudson noted: 'When Al Gore compares those who question his perception of man-made global warming to racists and segregationists in an attempt to ‘win the conversation,’ he reveals a disturbing desperation that not only alienates him from the mainstream but marginalizes his logic and nullifies his already flailing credibility.'"

"Anti-immigrant efforts to co-opt the environmental movement go back decades and were most brazen in the infamous battle of 2004 to take over the Board of the Sierra Club.  One of the primary players in that affair, Bill Elder, is in the thick of Apply the Brakes, serving as its website coordinator.  Elder’s 'green' ties to the anti-immigrant movement are deep and despicable, and reach into its white nationalist core via Brenda Walker, a regular contributor to the white nationalist website V-DARE, and Virginia Abernethy, an avowed white separatist.  Newer anti-immigrant players like Philip Cafaro—who has ludicrously tied the Gulf oil spill to immigrants—help flesh out Tanton Network tentacles into ATB."

These root causes—capitalism, imperialism, and the systems of oppression that uphold them– are the same root causes that put the earth’s ability to sustain human life in peril. We are forging a new movement of movements in which grassroots groups in frontline communities provide key leadership for a just resolve to our global crisis, working in concert with environmentalists, policy advocates, artists, healers, and more."

"To the former residents, the suggestion that they cannot coexist with the wildlife on Harris Neck is absurd. 'Wildlife was a part of us all of our lives,' said Kenneth R. Dunham Sr., 80, who was a child when the federal government gave Harris Neck families two weeks to leave before their houses were bulldozed and burned. 'In my back door, I could hear the wild geese coming. We left food in the field so they would have something to eat.'

"Harris Neck was deeded by a plantation owner to a former slave in 1865. Black families who settled there built houses and boats and started crab and oyster factories. But the community, many descendants suspect, was too independent for the comfort of McIntosh County’s whites."

James Cameron, the Hollywood titan, stood before them with orange warrior streaks painted on his face, comparing the threats on their lands to a snake eating its prey."
