Tear down this wall! And save the planet
There are urgent parallels between the fall of Communism and the fight to stop climate change
The German people, and the whole world alongside them, are today celebrating a landmark date in history: the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Not many events can claim their place in the collective memory as a watershed that divides two distinct periods. The dismantling of the Berlin Wall that stark, concrete symbol of a world divided into hostile camps is such an event. It brought incredible hope and opportunity to people everywhere, and provided the 1980s with a truly jubilant finale. That is something to think about as this decade draws to a close, and the chance for humanity to take another momentous leap forward appears to be slipping away.
The road to the end of the Cold War was certainly not easy, or universally welcomed at the time, but it is for just this reason that its lessons remain relevant.

Why hasn’t this KGB mass murderer been arrested? The fact that he’s walking free spewing his green fascism tells you all you need to know about our government. Joe was right!
They finally found their match in god-foresaken commie land. This is like Europeans going wild over Jack and Jacqueline Kennedy because they were perfect projection of European upper class.
Liberals cannot mistreat such an urbane and 'articulate'(sounds familiar) soul mate.:-)
Lately, these limo libs found their own projection again, now in Barry and Michelle. Well, not so much Michelle, but Barry? Yes.
Gorby knows what he is doing. Russia and the Former Soviet Union doesn’t have to abide by any of the carbon agreements, as spelled out by the Copenhagen agreement.
One of Gorbys goals is to prohibit drilling for oil and natural gas in Western nations, and to make restrictions on industry so tight that we continue to move industries to China and the Soviet Motherland (Gee I wonder why).
