48] – Blow the whistle on corruption in Congress on Tues., Jan. 24 at noon at Capitol Hill. Big Oil keeps on corrupting Congress. The head of the American Petroleum Institute promised "huge electoral consequences" because Obama temporarily rejected the Keystone Pipeline; meanwhile, the fossil fuel harem on Capitol Hill is planning to introduce legislation that would take away the president's right to make the decision and simply grant the permit themselves. Make a stand against the big money that's polluted this process. Remember, the 234 Congresspeople who voted to expedite Keystone had taken $42 million in dirty energy money. So here's the plan. Instead of circling the White House, this time show up at Congress in referee's uniforms. Be there at noon, ready to blow the whistle on their corruption. The demonstration will start on Capitol Hill, and then proceed to the headquarters of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry's #1 lobby. Call out the penalties—forget facemasking, this is vote-buying. Forget unsportsmanlike conduct—this is undemocratic conduct. Click to sign up: act.350.org/signup/dc-keystone-refs/

58] – On Wed., Jan. 25 from 7:30 to 9:30 PM, see CHEMERICAL followed by a discussion at the Baltimore Ethical Society, 306 W. Franklin St., Suite 102, Baltimore, MD 21201-4661. Chemerical explores the life cycle of everyday household cleaners and hygiene products to prove that, thanks to our obsession with cleanliness, we are drowning in a sea of toxicity. The film is at once humorous, as we watch the Goode family try to turn a new leaf by creating and living in a toxic-free home, and informative, as director Andrew Nisker works with many experts to give audiences the tools and inspiration to live toxic free. Chemerical tackles "the toxic debate" in a truly revelatory and entertaining way, not only by raising awareness, but by providing simple solutions.
Donations are requested for refreshments. Screenings are open to members of BES and the BES Ironweed Film Club. Contact Emil about free membership at 410-547-7798. Visit www.baltimoreethicalsociety.org.
