- New York World Can't Wait
Rally at the National Mall and then march to the White House!
Sun., Feb. 17, 2013 from noon-2:00 pm
The climate crisis is creating weather patterns that aren't just extreme -- they're downright freaky. Our leaders can't sit around and twiddle their thumbs anymore, and it's up to activists like you to make sure they get the memo.
The North American heat wave of 2012 killed 104 people and cut off power to millions, and then superstorm Sandy took 253 lives and disrupted the entire Northeastern US. While it's true that we can't point to any one storm and say, "That's climate," we can point to the pattern -- and that's what's happening now: a deadly, man-made pattern that must be addressed.
Reject Keystone XL: Tar sands are the dirtiest oil on Earth. Phase out carbon-intensive fossil fuels and fire up energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy sources. Join with thousands of activists to hold the largest climate rally in history.
