Got any plans for Saturday, April 14?
If not, consider participating in a Step It Up rally, to tell Congress to take some serious action in cutting carbon emissions. I'll be attending the one in Ann Arbor, but there are events planned in 1347 cities and towns throughout the US. See their website for more info.
The US contains about 4% of the world's population, and produces about a quarter of the world's pollution. We've really lagged behind the rest of the world on what will soon become the most pertinent international issue of the century. It's really time to get our butts in gear on this.
I'll post a review and pictures after the event.
