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 562,649 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.

July 2005, a heat wave in Arizona kills 34; August, September, October 2005,

three of the strongest hurricanes in history, Hurricane Katrina, Rita and

Wilma, destroy thousands of lives and cost billions in damages; October

2005, 2000 American soldiers killed in the Iraq war; November 2005 oil

prices reach record highs; January 2006, President Bush admits America's

addiction to oil is a serious problem.

The combination of recent destruction and death caused by extreme weather,

the ongoing deadly and costly war in Iraq, and rising prices at the pump

have and must be a tipping point, the point at which for many Americans

globally warming ceases to be simply a scientific topic and instead becomes

something real, something that hits close to home, and something that we can

no longer ignore. More and more we need to realize that in order to protect

our climate and prevent the disastrous social and environmental effects of

global warming we must break our destructive and dangerous dependence on

fossil fuels and act TODAY.

While we are already experiencing the effects of global warming from human

activity today, our collective failure to act today is going to effect

future generations far more severely. It is tomorrow's leaders, CEO's,

revolutionary and radicals that are going to face the brunt of what global

warming has in store for the planet. We need to head the call of the 400

young people that gathered at the UN Climate Negotiations in Montreal still

rings in my ear, "Stop asking how much it is costing you, and start asking

how much it is costing us."

Global Exchange, a membership-based international human rights organization

dedicated to promoting social, economic and environmental justice around the

world since our founding in 1988 is pleased to join with the millions of

people marching around the world to push for drastic and immediate action to

stop human-induced global warming. We are committed to raising the stories

of those most affected by global warming, and in developing programs that

seek to get our nation to declare its independence from oil.

Let's get moving people!!!
