For those of you wondering how to conduct an #ExxonKnew gas station protest, here’s a fabulous video of Ken Ward, one of the Climate Disobedience Center founders, protesting in Oregon.

Watching this makes me think that this is how Mr. Rogers would protest if he were still alive — kind, not a trace of hostility, a focus on educating his neighbors, and determined to do the right thing. Why? Because he cares.
I love watching the faces of the people Ward speaks with. We need thousands upon thousands of points of contact like this with neighbors, local business owners and politicians across our country and around the world to accelerate our transition .
Whether it is protesting a gas station or having a conversation checking in with your friends, think about where YOU can highlight the urgency of the climate change and help call for a swifter transition to an economy supporting a livable future.
Thanks to Ken Ward for reminding us that anyone can do this.
Thanks to Lindsey Grayzel for filming and producing this video.
Thanks to Bill McKibben for inspiring the growing wave of #ExxonKnew gas station protests.
