Join the Center for Biological Diversity for the Largest Climate Rally in U.S. History
President Barack Obama must move America forward on climate in 2013 with decisive action to reduce dangerous carbon pollution. Mr. Obama’s legacy rests squarely on his leadership in the face of an unstable climate future -- he has the power to direct a
large-scale, urgent effort needed to phase out carbon-intensive fossil fuels and shift our economy to clean, renewable energy sources.
It’s up to us to move the president to action. And his first milestone should be to reject the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline.
Join the Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club, 350.org and dozens of other groups in Washington, D.C., for the Forward on Climate Rally -- the largest climate rally in American history.
Event details below:
What: Forward on Climate, the largest climate rally in U.S. history Where: The National Mall in Washington, D.C. When: Feb. 17, 2013, noon - 4 p.m. (please arrive by 11:30 a.m.)

Atheism is a vigorous and a courageous philosophy.
It is not afraid to face the problems of life, and it is not afraid to confess that there are problems yet to be solved.
It does not claim that it has solved all the questions of the universe, but it does claim that it has discovered the approach and learned the method of solving them.
It has dedicated itself to the passionate quest for the truth.
It believes that truth for truth’s sake is the highest ideal and that virtue is its own reward.
It believes that love of humanity is a higher ideal than a love of God. We cannot help God, but we can help mankind. “Hands that help are better far than lips that play.” Praying to God is humiliating; worshiping God degrading.
It believes in Ingersoll, when he said: “Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith. Banish me from Eden when you will, but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge.”
Atheism is a self-reliant philosophy.
It makes a man intellectual free. He is thrilled to enthusiasm by his mental emancipation and he faces the universe without fear of ghosts or gods.
It teaches man that unless he devotes his energies and applies himself whole-heartedly to the task he wishes to achieve, the accomplishment will not be made.
Is it not better to place a question mark upon a problem while seeking an answer than to put the label “God” there and consider the matter solved?
