I am Danny Boyer and I plan to go to Washington DC (from California) to be part of an international day of action being planned by 350.org to push the US government to take bold action in leading the world towards a future of clean renewable energy and away from fossil fuels.  I am hoping people who cannot be in the streets with me, will chip in a little money to help me get there (I am supporting a family and while financially this trip is not in their benefit, taking action on the climate change issue is!). 

Governments will not make tough decisions unless they are pressured to do so.  Around the world and throughout history, citizens have taken to the streets to pressure their governments to take various positive actions. 

According to scientists, as highlighted by the recent World Bank report, Turn Down the Heat, human cause climate destabilization due in large part to the burning of fossil fuels, is happening more rapidly than most predicted.  We are at a point where our governments must take extreme action immediately to avoid possibly catastrophic outcomes. 

The US government needs to lead the world in reducing its use of fossil fuels as well the development of renewable sources of energy.  Instead they have been leaders in obstructing meaningful action being taken on a global scale.

 Presidents Day, 2013, people from around the country and world will gather in Washington DC to say yes to renewable energy, yes to bold action on climate change, no to fossil fools, no to the XL pipeline.  We will be the pressure Obama needs to take this issue on and make the United States leaders in climate solutions not leaders in climate pollution.

Years in the making but all the work payed off. At least a symbolic victory: The Keystone XL Pipeline has been defeated. Now we must push to keep all the tar sands in the ground!

UGH! I had to change my flight schedule as the rally I intended to take part is now being held on Sunday rather than President's day. So much for being on top of the flights early. This cost me $150 so I upped my goal in case folks were still thinking of donating a few bucks.
This is looking like it will be the largest climate rally in history (at least in the US), thanks for helping me take part!
Peace
