Heading to Washington DC for Feb 17 Climate Action

Mn350: Building a Climate Movement in Minnesota - Minneapolis, MN

This Friday I’m going to do something I’ve never done before. I’m going to Washington DC where on Sunday, February 17, I will stand with thousands of people – I hope it will be many thousands – to tell the President that he must ACT NOW to address catastrophic climate change. The first order of business must be to REJECT the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

This fight to change business as usual for fossil fuel has been called “the lunch counter moment of the 21st Century.” It is a fight we MUST win if our children are to have a future.

If you live in Minnesota, you can catch the bus with folks from MN350. We’re taking an Amtrack train on Friday and a second group is taking a bus on Saturday. A third bus filling up now. Contact MN350 to tell them you want to ride. Round trip is a mere $150! and you’ll be back at 1 pm on Monday.

Stand up for your future. Stand up for your children’s future. Let’s stand together in Washington, DC.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
