It's Friday, so perhaps you're slacking off at work looking for something to watch online. Well you're in luck, I've got some ideas for you.
First up, the Sierra Club's Cool Cities Campaign now has its own YouTube Channel, featuring a video on the basics of Cool Cities, one on what it's like to have your own Cool City, and lots of videos introducing the great staff members on that campaign.
Second, a few weeks ago I was live-blogging from the Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference here in Washington, DC, put on by the Blue Green Alliance. That conference featured some phenomenal speakers from a variety of backgrounds and organizations. The Blue Green Alliance now has all those videos on their YouTube channel - including Van Jones, Winona LaDuke, Richard Trumka, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Senators Amy Klobuchar, Debbie Stabenow and Sherrod Brown - and many many more.
I would link them all here, except that many of the speeches are too long for one YouTube video, so just go to the main Blue Green Alliance Channel page to watch them in order.
Finally, Sierra Club Board President Allison Chin gave me an interview during the conference about what it all meant to her and the Sierra Club, and then I also spoke with Dr. Donald Kennedy about the Sierra Club's new six-tier Climate Recovery Campaign.
