350.org is organizing thousands of events around the world to raise awareness of and encouragement of renewable forms of energy on September 24 under the title “Moving Planet Day”. Four example there are 4 in the Toronto area and 4 in the Vancouver area.

I am asking friends to join me at the one at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver at the wind turbine. My brother is asking friends and family to join him at one in Toronto. On the right side of this blog 350.org is the first environmental blog listed. Searching “Moving Planet” will get you to a page which will identify events.

My brother is now organizing friends and family to participate in a 350.org action in Toronto on Moving Planet Day. The effects of your participation in the Keystone action is rippling.

That’s fantastic. There is an enormous amount of work that needs to be done in order to shift the political discourse.

We need to make keeping fossil fuels underground a political possibility in the United States and Canada.
