Martin Luther King had a dream, but he had other phrases too

Climate change activists like to quote Martin Luther King's "I have a dream ..." as an example of selling a positive message that will appeal easily to people.

But in the same speech this blog reminds us Dr King also spoke in grittier terms about the "fierce urgency of now" and "the tranquillizing drug of gradualism".
