National Day of Climate Action
Bill McKibben, left, is starting a movement to address the perils posed by climate change. On April 14, a new organization called Step It Up 2007 is inviting organizations to hold rallies and events across the country. So far, over 300 events are planned in 39 states. It can be as humble as a sign, as entertaining as theater, or as bold as a mass demonstration.
This National Day of Climate Action could be an unparalleled event, drawing together people of every creed, color, and background. If we can create events in every town and city in the U.S., nothing could say more to our Congress and President. All of the tools are in place to address climate change and avert a disaster, all except one: the resolve and voice of the American people willing to form a movement. April 14, 2007 is the day.
