November 3rd: US National Day of Climate Action

Step it up 2007's national day of Climate Action took place this November 3rd across the US. This day of action looks like it was a huge success, with photos comming in from across the nation. But a long term campaign is anticipated, new alliances are being formed and new organisations founded.

Just starting off is 1 Sky a 3 pronged campaign to create green jobs, cut carbon emissins 80% by 2050 and stop all new coal fired power plants without carbon capture and storage. This campaign reminds me of the appolo alliance and the writings of Nordhaus and Shellenburger whose book 'Breakthrough' on environmental campaign strategy is just out. Note: tip one is dont be an environmenalist be a progressive.

Another effort that is new to me is the Powershift07 , which i believe is the latest Energy Action even; according to the website the Nov 2-5th conference has attracted 5500+ people!

From the Step it Up Blog:
"While hundreds of actions are taking place all across the country, over 5,500+ young people are rocking out at Power Shift 07, the first national youth summit on global warming. Our crew will be there with them tonight to culminate this incredible day of action all across the country with a concert and giant Step It Up rally. "

Of course all of this is cronicled on the youth climate change blog itsgettinghotinhere.
