THINK GLOBALLY...ACT LOCALLY ON THE ENVIRONMENT...ACTION STEPS YOU CAN TAKE

We had a great time yesterday at the StepItUp2007 National Day of Climate Action rally at the Dobbs Ferry Historical Society. We thank all who attended, despite the challenging weather. And special thanks to all those who filled out postcards – they will be in the mail tomorrow. Here is a gallery full of pictures from the day:

And events throughout the rest of the Country (pick a state or zip code):

There is one more action related to StepItUp2007 we are asking you to take, if you are willing: Call your Congressional Representatives on Monday, November 5. Here is a link to StepItUp2007’s website that goes over the details, including telephone numbers:

For most of the folks on our mailing list, this will mean making up to 3 phone calls, contacting the offices of Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Representative Eliot Engle (if you live west of Broadway) OR Representative Nita Lowey (if you live East of Broadway). If your time is limited, we suggest contacting Senator Schumer, and/or your Representative, because Senator Clinton has already responded to this event, whereas the others have not. Please call even if you did not attend our Dobbs Ferry event, because the main idea of the call is to express concern about Global Climate Change, and to inform our elected officials about the 1 Sky initiative, with these 3 priorities:

1) Create 5 million green jobs that will conserve 20% of our energy by 2015.

2) Cut carbon 80% by 2050, 30% by 2020.

3) A moratorium on new coal-fired power plants.

How about looking into windmills.
I checked for myself but you have to get them from only one company and that seems to be a scam.
