Author/activist Bill McKibben is calling on Americans to rally together on April 14th to get their elected officials to take notice (and then take action) on climate change.
Instead of bringing together the masses for a march on Washington (very carbon intensive), McKibben has started Step it up 2007 as an organizing hub for rallies across the states. So far there are over 500 actions listed on the site with more being added every day.
Americans are trying to put the heat on the federal government to finally take action on climate change. (And according to this week’s Economist, some politicians might be listening.)
