Leave it to the bombing campaign in Libya to remind us that the ongoing horror in Japan isn’t the only thing to lose sleep over. Japan and the North Africa/Middle East region are each about five thousand miles away from us here in the US, in opposite directions, but we’ve got one eye glued on each these days. And with damned good reason.

Here are five lessons we’ve (re)learned in recent weeks

PCI wins YouTube DoGooder nonprofit video award.

With all that’s happening in Japan, Libya, and elsewhere, it feels strange to celebrate. But we want to thank all our supporters who, through their votes and spreading the word, helped PCI win the YouTube DoGooder nonprofit video award.

Thousands of organizations participated and four were awarded the top prize. For this we are grateful and proud.

In our work, spreading the word can be incredibly difficult. Winning the award meant that 300 Years of Fossil Fuels was featured prominently on the front page of YouTube for a day. Consider that YouTube receives hundreds of millions of visitors daily and you can see why we consider this a real opportunity to get our message out. Thus far, the video has been viewed more than 800,000 times!

But now one our supporters has put out an even bigger challenge: To get Senior Fellow Richard Heinberg on The Daily Show with John Stewart, to talk about The End of Growth. The show takes suggestions on their website. So if you are a Facebook user and want Richard to be heard by millions of television viewers, please add your voice here.
