On February 17, an Armada of Busses full of Human,
Non-Corporate People will land on Washington DC
President Obama must move Forward on Climate with decisive action to reduce ruinous carbon pollution. Obama’s most lasting legacy will be his leadership in the face of an unstable climate future. He can start with that most egregious violation of our planet’s health, the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
It is fully within Obama’s power to reject, with the stroke of a pen, the Keystone XL pipeline.
Will he reject it? Why shouldn’t he reject it?
Whose interest would he serve by letting the Keystone move forward?
Join the Largest Rally in History for a Stable Climate
The President’s daughters, and their children, present and future generations around the world deserve a livable climate. This should be a no brainer. So,
Our sister organizations are offering multiple busses leaving from Manhattan and Brooklyn at 7PM on February 17. Some have reduced prices or “scholarship” seats for those less able to pay. Choose the bus with the price and location best suited to you. Our friends at 350 are coordinating this bus brigade.
