Houston Climate March, September 19th

September 19th @ 3pm, Houston City Hall

Concerned about global warming, extreme weather events and mass species extinction but don’t know what to do about it? Here’s a chance to show that despite the actions of a handful of large corporations, Houston cares about our collective future. In solidarity with the People’s Climate March in New York, join us to celebrate (and help inaugurate) the emergence of a new global movement around climate change with an irreverent march in downtown of The Energy Capital of the World (home of 5,000 energy companies) next Friday, September 19th, at 3:00. With drums, puppeteers, cyclists and oil-tarred hula hoopers, we’ll be parading from City Hall (by the reflecting pool) to the downtown HQ of an oil company to thank the government and fossil fuel corporations for delivering an endless Houston summer to the rest of the United States. We’ll conclude by marching right on down to happy hour at the Last Concert Cafe.

For all the miles we’ve all driven and flown, why not take off from work a few hours early on September 19th to walk a mile with us?

    “A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy

    “As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”

    “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

    If Al Gore can do it, you can too! I did it 26 years ago and consider it one of the best decisions of my life.
