Weekend open thread: How can we create a grassroots climate and clean energy movement?

And what can ClimateProgress do to help?

Many readers tell me of their interest in creating a genuine sustainable grassroots movement — with teeth. That’s not an easy thing, obviously, and would require a tremendous collective effort. But I think a higher fraction of climate hawks read CP than any other blog, and, as Hillel said :

“If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, when?”

[Strangely, I don’t think this made the incredible list of favorite quotes from last week’s Open Thread.]

UPDATE: In the comments section, Eban Goodstein reposts his Grist piece, “Time for Clean Energy Party?”

ClimateProgress is going to increase its content and presence on the web this year, including a Facebook strategy. So I welcome comments on how we can all work together to create a grassroots movement, and what CP in particular might do.
