What it does: The Climate Emergency Fund was founded recently — July 2019 — with the goal of quickly getting money to groups engaged in climate protest. It has already raised and disbursed several hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to groups it has vetted. The grantees range from the well-established 350.org to the fledgling Extinction Rebellion, an activist movement that uses nonviolent civil disobedience — like filling the streets and blocking intersections — to demand governments do more to stave off mass extinction.

The money is going to everything from hiring organizers to buying signs and bullhorns to organizing school trips. A second round of more than 30 grants is in the works, representing over $2 million more. The fund is currently raising money, accepting donations large and small. ... [The founders] came together around a shared conviction that street protest is both crucially important to climate politics and a longtime blind spot for environmental philanthropy.

Lyrics

Greta's Stare

Up ahead is America it's megalomania, factories and greed
Red elephant swastikas, Nazi replicas, MAGA disease
Corporations own all of it, politicians they swallow it and the poverty grows
Opportunity Chimera, false flags and hysteria, will you like my post?
"Make America Great Again", HA! When has it ever been? A rich man's hoax
Depopulation erotica, slavery exotica, a white washed load
Oligarchic rhetoric, propagandic heretics, the American Dream
Narcoleptic desolate, can't afford medicine, o say can you see?

America's dead it was all in your head, turn around their ain't nuthin' to see
When push comes to shove, we were blind to the sun and we mocked anyone taking a knee
A final solution reborn in the Union and the MAGAts all started to feed
I'd say revolution, but we're numb by pollution, America's dead and deceased.

By the dawn's early light.
What's so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming

Low behind is America, it's every heritage, but can't find it's Soul
Big money small president, caging up immigrants, cops out of control
Hypnotized by flashing screens to afraid to make a scene, and they all get away
Desensitized to people's plight, erasing Human RItes, where is your rage?

"Make America Great Again", ASK Native Americans, you can ask their ghosts
Both wings of the same plane, bombing the cities same, stand in your oath
Flag waving hypocrisy, evangelical lobbying, tone deaf to the screams
History dementia, complacent suburbia, God she His Grace on Thee

America's dead it was all in your head, turn around their ain't nuthin' to see
When push comes to shove, we were blind to the sun and we mocked anyone taking a knee
A final solution reborn in the Union and the MAGAts all started to feed
I'd say revolution, but we're numb by pollution, America's dead and deceased.

And crown thy good with brother hood, from sea to shining sea
