For humans to understand bird sex, they must first throw out all thoughts of mammalian sex organs.The cloaca is an internal chamber that ends in an opening, and through this opening, a bird's sex organs — testes or ovaries — discharge sperm or eggs.
Keystone XL is the president’s test for his resolve on climate - but he won’t reject it without our pressure.Over the past year, more than 95,000 people have signed the pledge, and we’ve trained more than 450 local Pledge of Resistance leaders to deploy these tens of thousands of people in peaceful, dignified civil disobedience if necessary.It is those we protest, those who profit from radically altering the chemical composition of our atmosphere -- and the prospects for survival of humanity - that are the radicals. And share this pledge with friends and family so that those who are ready and willing to be arrested can be counted in the pledge to resist. Becky Bond, Michael Kieschnick & Elijah Zarlin, CREDO Action Amanda Starbuck, Rainforest Action Network John Sellers, The Other 98% Rev.But what is more frightening than asking you to join us in committing to acts of civil disobedience across the nation, is the prospect of coming up short in the fight against Keystone XL. Now is the time to show that you are prepared to stand with tens of thousands of others in a massive wave of peaceful and dignified civil disobedience if the State Department recommends approval.
President Obama has pledged strong action that we need on climate.
That's why CREDO is joining with Bold Nebraska, The Other 98%, Hip Hop Caucus, Rainforest Action Network, 350and Oil Change International to launch the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance. That is, we are asking you to commit - should it be necessary to stop Keystone XL -- to engage in serious, dignified, peaceful civil disobedience that could get you arrested.
Will you join us in pledging resistance to the Keystone XL pipeline, including - if necessary - pledging to participate in peaceful, dignified civil disobedience?
There is still time to convince President Obama to change his mind and reject Keystone XL.
But with the president ignoring every possible sign Mother Nature can send, it is once again incumbent upon us to send a message he can't ignore.
This same opening also serves a less-sexy purpose: the expulsion of urinary and digestive waste.
