There is no more important cause than the call to action to save our planet. This is a movement about change, as individuals, as a country, and as a global community. We are all contributors to global warming and we all need to be part of the solution. Join the 522,330 supporters of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March, and become part of the movement to demand solutions to global warming now.

The Stop Global Warming Virtual March is a non-political effort bringing Americans together to declare that global warming is here now and it’s time to act.

Villaraigosa

Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa

We can't think about global warming as some far-away problem of melting polar ice caps, rising sea-levels, and distant hurricanes in remote places. It is OUR problem here in Los Angeles. This is a global problem with severe local repercussions. The time to act is NOW. Just as no family would watch its house burn down without rallying the community to fight the fire, we need to sound the alarm, join hands, and face this challenge together. We can't afford to dither, delay, or declare defeat for another year. This is a crisis that we can and must meet. This is why I have also joined with 200 other Mayors in the US Mayors Agreement on Climate Change in which we have pledged to meet or beat the Kyoto Protocol targets. It's going to require bold action to meet those targets. And we are setting big goals in Los Angeles. I realize that our city has historically been more synonymous with sprawl and smog, but were committed to making LA the greenest big city in America and a model for sustainable practices.
