I'd love to see some humor, satire, very visible costumes, large puppets, or other visual ways of spreading the message beyond the choir. I realize this is vague, just thinking out loud

Excellent to see this attended with so many diverse organizations. A lot of the more ‘old school’ political organizers and activists in the SF Bay area also were not there. For a lot of people, there is less of a habit of regular activism and rallies. So hopefully we can build the coalition to include many more factions, including some of the major radical groups from SF, the E. Bay, etc., to keep building up the numbers. hopefully next time we can have more like 50,000, or 500,000 out there!!

Science shows that a 4 degree celsius rise may be enough to end human civilization. Science also shows that due to nonlinear changes, a 2 degree celcius rise likely will lock in more than 4 degrees. We can radically cut back our carbon emissions.

Beyond the Pump

Put global warming warning labels on gas pumps! The warning can include a link to the local Climate Action website. This is an awareness-raising action. Cigarettes have warning labels, why not gas pumps? Ask Bay Area City Councils to pass a City Ordinance to put warning labels on Bay Area gas pumps. For example:

To the Bay Area Local Governments: 

We urge our city council to require warning labels on gas pumps to:

  1. Warn consumers that burning gasoline is causing global warming,
  2. Inform people that our city has a Climate Action Plan to reduce CO2 in general and gasoline use in particular.
