Zero Hour

We talk about climate change, about how necessary it is to do something about it. That’s important, and I commend all of us who do.

But there’s a group of kids who are going to march on Washington to press the issue. They need our help. Anything you can do will go a lot further than you might expect.

Because this is zero hour. They need our help. Let’s not fail them.

One thing you can do is publicize. If you have a blog, post about it. If you’re on twitter, tweet about it. I suggest the hashtag “#zerohour”

Don’t just do it today. That will make people think “good for ’em!” Then they’ll forget. Tweet about it every day. The march is set for July 21st, so tweet about it at least 10 times — at least once every day. Get your twitter friends to do the same. Let everyone know that this is important, and that the kids need our help.

They are shouldering the burden of taking to the streets. We can make it easier for them, we can make them more successful, we can get them the notice they need, the notice we all need.

Now is not the time to sit back on your hands. Now is the time to push this like there’s no tomorrow. Because this is zero hour.

    Your “this is zero hour” link does not appear to work.

  2. I just read where Nobel-prize winner Joseph Stiglitz has waived his usual legal advice and consulting fees for writing a report supporting the kids’ case in court.

    If we leave it ’til tomorrow, we’ll soon run out of tomorrows.

    Every single one of us should ask ourselves “what did we do today to manifest change for a sustainable world tomorrow?” If the answer is “nothing” the follow-up question is “why?”
