Green Left Weekly turns 20

Today...
It's nearly 20 years since I first read Green Left Weekly, and almost 19 since I started distributing and occasionally writing for it, although it doesn't feel like that long ago.

So congratulations to GLW, you make me feel old!

In this era of a myriad of web based news feeds and blogs and wikileaks and all the rest, Green Left still manages to publish original and vital news that we can use to change the world for the better.

...and yesterday (1992)

Climate change is making the world change for the worst, inexorably, slowly, with every season and every new coal mine or oil well. Any countervailing tendency that we can use to steer back the other direction is vital and we would be much worse off without Green Left.

Happy birthday to you!
