Dear Fellow Marcher,
Right now, dozens of nations are meeting in Montreal at the 11th “Conference of the Parties,” the first convention of the nations under the Kyoto accord. The 156 nations who have ratified the Kyoto Protocol know that active involvement is essential to overcoming the challenges we now face with global warming.
In my home state of Tennessee, we’re watching the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains being slowly eroded by smog, turning the wisps of smoke into a smothering cloud—smog that scientists say is being made worse by global warming. You can find out more about what’s happening to this majestic national treasure at StopGlobalWarming.org.
I hope that you will join me in my commitment to stop global warming by helping us reach out to all Americans to get them marching. Our goal is a million marchers by April. Together we can meet this challenge.
Marcher, Virtual March to Stop Global Warming
