Stepping It Up on Carbon

I biked out to Lexington last Saturday for a very spirited save-the-planet rally and march courtesy of Step It Up.

Here is a photo of us all grouped around the famous Minuteman statue.

(I am the orange bicycle-jacket-clad arm rising into the air at far right.)

Step It Up promotes policies that cut carbon. As founder Bill McKibben puts it,
The recent elections have given us an opening, and polling shows most Americans know there's a problem. But the forces of inertia and business-as-usual are still in control, and only our voices, united and loud, joyful and determined, can change that reality.
Please join us.

This was a fun and upbeat event and there seem to have been lots of them across the country.
