Dan Choi, Bill McKibben and I are continuing our Powershift panel, “What Do You Do When the President is Just Not Into You.” (Felipe Matos, who took Bill’s place when we recreated the panel at Netroots Nation, scored quite the victory in the same vein with Roberto Lovato and everyone else at Presente this week.)

Scarecrow is here with us in DC and we’re all going to take part in the first day of the 10 day tar sands sit-in.

You can read Bill’s OpEd in the Washington Post today: Watershed Moment for Obama on Climate Change.

Bill gave credit to Dan last night at the training for his inspirational actions. Dan coined the term “flaming firebaggers.”

I’ll livestream as I can, and live tweet at @JaneHamsher
