In case you want to know more about Moving Planet:
Moving Planet is a worldwide rally on September 24, 2011 to call for solutions to the climate crisis—a single day to move away from fossil fuels. In cities and towns around the world, people will take to the streets on bicycles, skateboards, on foot, and more, coming together as a global community dedicated to moving our planet in a new direction, away from fossil fuels and towards a sustainable future. Here in the Bay Area, we’re on track to have one of the most massive mobilizations of people power (and pedal power!) our nation and world has ever seen. In fact 350.org* is dedicating a huge amount of staff time, resources, and money to make this one of our best events yet. So far, we have Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org; Mike Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club; and Carl Anthony, co-founder Race, Poverty and the Environment scheduled as speakers, with more politicians and leaders to come.
Local actions are happening all over the Bay Area in the A.M.
Then everyone will MEET at Justin Herman Plaza in SF at NOON.
We will PARADE down Market Street at 12:30 P.M. headed towards Civic Center Plaza, where speakers, entertainment, and activities abound through 6:00 P.M.
Remember to sign up to volunteer!
Please spread the word to other potentially interested people/groups!

*What is 350? 350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in “parts per million” (ppm), so 350ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. To get there, we need a different kind of PPM—a “people powered movement” that is made of people like you in every corner of the planet
