“Fearless Summer” movement launches months of intense climate protest

We already know this summer’s gonna be a scorcher, weather-wise. (Sorry, Colorado …) It’s also shaping up to be a hot one for climate activists.

Last year was no chilly picnic: In August, we saw journalist-turned-activist Bill McKibben and more than 1,000 other peaceful protesters arrested for civil disobedience at the White House. That was pretty big! But this 2013 “Fearless Summer” will likely be even bigger.

A mash-up between grassroots efforts and large, national environmental groups, Fearless Summer is a coordinated effort ofmore than 50 organizations and unaffiliated individuals that takes aim “against all forms of dirty energy.”
