Photos and voices from Step It Up 2007 rallies across the U.S.
19 Apr 2007
On April 14, 2007, gaggles of enthusiastic Americans gathered at more than 1,400 spots around the U.S. to demand action against climate change, part of a coordinated Step It Up campaign launched by author Bill McKibben
. At all the rallies, marches, parties, and other hullabaloos, the message was the same: Step it up, Congress! Enact immediate cuts in greenhouse-gas emissions, and pledge an 80 percent reduction by 2050.
I Stepped It Up last Saturday and rode my bike in the rain to a clean car expo held right underneath the lovely Golden Gate Bridge.
I encourage you to take a few minutes and go to www.StepItUp2007.org
to view the pictures and read actions reports on the 1400 actions held April 14th. It'll give you goosebumps.
