Ready or not, like it or not, Context News is BACK!  At this point, as an offering in text. Soon to be back in full multi-media format.

Since our last broadcast, most of the efforts of the CN family have been devoted to the work of climate change and in specific the empowering of humanity to make a critical impact in the matter. Real actions taken in real time to produce real results. Housed in the campaign that is 2020 or Bust.

It was Context News that got us into this mess. It was only when we set out to do some reporting on climate change that we discovered the deep doo doo we were in and shifted our focus to instigating a global campaign to offer what we saw as critically missing - the opportunity for the ordinary person to take responsibility for the whole enchilada and take the direct actions that could bridge the gap between the cliff we're predictably marching over and a sustainable future for all of life.

But make no mistake, it is ALL CONTEXT. As we laid out in the episodes we did on the climate crisis, the real crisis is not carbon or politics or science: the real crisis is the context in which the situation exists for people, a context that renders them/us fundamentally powerless.

So Context News will be bringing you all the news that's fit to upset, disrupt, confound and instigate! Our mission is intact - to provide everyone the opportunity to explore the critical issues of the day at the level of root cause, to leave you not only informed but empowered.

It's great to be back, it's great to be at work in partnership with you. Let's go!
