Stop Global Warming Virtual March

NEW PARTNERS AND MARCHERS

This week the Virtual March grew to over 670,000 marchers! Recent partners include Napster, Sacramento Zoo, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, Laetitia Vineyard & Winery, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Rock N Renew founder and Jonny Lives! leader Jonny Dubowsky, former NFL great Rod Woodson, sports journalist Rich Eisen, NBA MVP Steve Nash, and New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush.

The sports world is paying close attention to the issue of global warming. Check out the March 12 Sport Illustrated cover story .

POLAR BEAR SOS

Time is running out for polar bears, as they suffer the effects of global warming: birth rates are falling, fewer cubs are surviving and more bears are drowning. With more than 25 percent of the world’s polar bear populations already in decline, further warming could drive the polar bear to extinction by the
century’s end.

Please join us and the NRDC to tell the Bush Administration to protect polar bears and their critical habitat.
Visit PolarBearSOS.org and take action now!

ACT LOCALLY

The lack of leadership on global warming at the federal level is empowering citizens to take action locally. A recent New York Times article described how New Hampshire residents are considering a state referendum to ask the federal government to address the climate change issue. The measure also calls for state solutions for stopping global warming.

Organizers hope to force presidential candidates to address the issue during the New Hampshire primary. Hopefully New Hampshire’s efforts will help send a message that change can begin at the local level.

GLOBAL WARMING AND KLEENEX

Kimberly-Clark, parent company to Kleenex and Scott brands, refuses to stop using virgin paper fiber from the endangered North American Boreal Forests, which represent one quarter of the world’s remaining intact ancient forests, vital to fighting global warming.

More than 700 businesses have pledged not to use Kimberly-Clark products, and we encourage Marchers to do the same. We also encourage you to join Greenpeace in taking action, by visiting KleerCut.net and voicing your opposition to Kimberly Clark’s clear-cutting.

GUSTER’S CAMPUS CONSCIOUSNESS TOUR

SGW Virtual Marchers Guster again have teamed up with environmental action group Reverb to launch the second annual Campus Consciousness Tour. The band aims to spread environmental awareness and inspire students to get involved with earth-friendly causes. The tour kicks off March 28, 2007 in Winston-Salem, NC at Wake Forest University. For more information about the Campus Consciousness Tour and tour dates, visit http://www.campusconsciousness.org/.

ROCK N RENEW ON THE ROAD

New Virtual Marcher Jonny Dubowsky, lead member of indie band Jonny Lives!, is taking his Rock N Renew effort on the road. Rock N Renew is an educational series for students that examines the topics of global warming.

During the band’s upcoming tour, Jonny will be visiting schools in each tour market, and will be utilizing local club venues, promotions and media to help raise awareness about global warming. Great work!

Keep Marching!

This was a huge movement in the 60’s and 70’s…what happened Baby Boomers? Now is your chance to get back on the band wagon and make some changes!

That’s right fellow Baby Boomers…I am a tree hugger!

I won’t eat the heart of the palm tree either…because to get the heart of a palm…you have to cut the tree down to get it…it kills the tree!

Next time you blow your nose or use tissue for other purposes {wink} think about the trees that they are cutting down so that you can…did you forget about hankies and handerchiefs???

They sell recycled papers every where…only buy them!

WE are a huge voice…raise up and be heard!

Recycled tissue is GROOVY! LOL

When ~The Baby Boomer Queen~ sits on her thrown…she only uses recycled paper!

***********************************************

There is no more important cause than the call to action to save our planet. This is a movement about change, as individuals, as a country, and as a global community. We are all contributors to global warming and we all need to be part of the solution. Join the 672,805 supporters of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March, and become part of the movement to demand solutions to global warming now.
