Fighting for the Future: Forward on Climate Rally

Thank you to the nearly 50,000 concerned citizens who took to the streets in frigid weather on Presidents Day weekend at the Washington Monument, the thousands of others at more than twenty solidarity rallies across the country, and the more than one million online activists who spoke out to tell President Obama that it's past time to sincerely address the climate change crisis. As the brilliant writer/activist Bill McKibben put it at the rally: "The most fateful battle in human history is finally joined and we will fight it together."
