Climate Change Rally in DC, Sun. Feb. 17

Forward on Climate Rally

When: Sunday, February 17th, at 12 Noon
Where: The National Mall, Washington D.C.
Who: 350.org, The Sierra Club and the Hip-Hop Caucus

Why: To tell Barack Obama it's time to lead in the fight against climate change, beginning with the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

At 12 Noon on Sunday, February 17, thousands of Americans will head to Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in history. Join this historic event to make your voice heard and help the president start his second term with strong climate action.

Crippling drought. Devastating wildfires. Superstorm Sandy. Climate has come home – and the American people get it.

The first step to putting our country on the path to addressing the climate crisis is for President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. His legacy as president will rest squarely on his response, resolve, and leadership in solving the climate crisis.

For more information about rides, housing and answers to Frequently Asked Questions, visit http://forwardonclimate.org

Just over a year ago, 15,000 people surrounded the White House -- and President Obama listened, delaying the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. This is our best chance to show the President how strong this movement has become since then -- sign up today.

    The rally itself was great - lots of cool folks - anywhere between 35,000 and 50,000 of us. Great spirit despite the freezing weather. BUT, I have a real bone to pick with the organizing groups for not providing MAPS of the bus drop-off & pick-up points, the march route, porta-potty locations, etc. It took me a good bit of walking, and mis-direction by people to get back to the bus returning to NYC. Plus, I saw a LOT of people who were similarly confused. I received MANY emails about the event, how hard would it be to include a map in one of them?

    Amazing, vital!!!One group, http://globalkids.org/, was especially inspirational. . . . BUT, when I got home I saw NY1 reporting that there had been "hundreds of people," marching in DC and showing crowd shots that made it look like several dozens....
