“This dusty old dust is a-gettin’ my home, And I got to be driftin’ along.”
-Woody Guthrie, “So Long, It’s Been Good To Know Yuh”
This past weekend I watched Ken Burns’ new PBS documentary, “The Dust Bowl,” a great, insightful documentary drawing parallels to the dust bowl of the 1930’s and today’s environmental and climate crisis.
And of course it’s sponsored by Bank of America.
As a former history teacher, I can appreciate a new telling of environmental history before our movement even began. But as an organizer targeting the root causes of climate change and the banks that fund them, I have to wonder what is going on?
