Weekend Open Thread

What should Climate Hawks do now?

Here’s a topic for this weekend’s open thread: What should Climate Hawks do now that it’s clear serious federal action on either climate or clean energy is unlikely to happen for years if not a decade or more?

Can that grim forecast be changed? If not, what are the useful messages and actions at the national and local level. I’ll do at least one post on this next week with my thoughts, but I’d like to hear yours first.

As always, please post links to interesting weekend news/links. Or opine on whatever else is on your mind. Or suggest topical topics that CP should cover in the coming week. Or link to some jokes and cartoons — we need those more than ever now.
