A reminder that this Saturday, April 14th is Step It Up 2007, a national day of climate action.
This is going to be a great moment in history, and it’s so simple to be a part of it that everyone easily can and definitely should. Just go to the Step It Up 2007 web site and find an event in your area. Or organize one yourself. It’s totally 100% completely uncomplicated and otherwise effortless. Here’s all you have to do:
- Make a big homemade sign banner thingy out of whatever you have on hand that says “Step It Up Congress! Cut Carbon 80% by 2050!”
- Gather a group of friends, neighbors, and anyone else nearby
- Find a nice unique and/or photogenic location
- Take out a digital camera
- Snap a picture of the group holding up the aforementioned big homemade sign banner thingy.
- E-mail your picture to Step It Up (a huge “submit action report” button will appear on the Step It Up home page on Saturday. Click and submit.)
- Spend the remainder of the day resting on your well-deserved, highly inspired laurels.
Tons more info from carbon offsets for your event to how-to advice is available at the above link. Let’s each of us become a single drop of vital water this Saturday and join together to create a tidal wave of action and seachange in the political climate. The hour has come. It’s up to us. We can do it. And for the sake of all life on Earth, we must.
