Symbolic Tug O' War Between Fossil Fuel Fat Cats and the Glorious Greens: Come See the Spectacle

Mon., April 8th, 5:00 – 7:00 PM [Rain Date Wed., April 10]
Independence Mall - 5th & Market Sts.

Join Sierra Club activists and others as we stage a mock tug of war

“Filthy rich” titans of coal & oil, with tuxedos and money bags
The forces of green energy:
people in lab coats, scrubs, or green hard hats; people from island nations, the Arctic; animals threatened by sea level rise, etc.
(create your own costume!)

In the middle, President Obama, weighing Renewable Energy or settling for “All of the Above” (including fossil fuels)

The stark choice will be made visible—will you be there?

Afterwards, free refreshments for participants at Soho Pizza, 218 Market St.
RSVP: William Kramer at 732-589-8024 or Sue Edwards at 610-543-2986 with your costume plans

This is one of our events to push President Obama to take action on climate change policies that he promised in his Inaugural Address. For more information, check out our previous blog post outlining our strategy to motivate Obama on climate policies.

Stay in touch with us on Twitter , Facebook or, of course, right here on Blogger.

Sequester Will Negatively Impact Clean Air and Water Programs at State and Local Level

This article from Pew highlights the cuts to basic clean air and clean water programs across the states if the sequester takes place. From my experience in Millbourne, I'd say it's already difficult to get action on clean air violations. Cutting the staff and the program would logically make things much worse.

 Everyone, please call your congressman and comment.
