Note to all readers: Looking for you to join me and 5,000 others in getting your voice heard on Climate Change.

This November 5th, the largest grassroots engagement with Congress on global warming to date, will be led not by Al Gore or paid lobbyists, but by thousands of young voters under the banner of the 1Sky Campaign and
Power Shift 07 - the first-ever national youth summit united to solve the climate crisis. Power Shift 07 is slated to be an historic event, as this will be the first time in history that young people will be testifying to the government on global warming.

5,000 young people, representing all 50 sates and over 300 Congressional districts, will flock to University of Maryland and Capitol Hill for the Power Shift 07 training sessions, rally, and lobby day

The young voters will pledge for the following:

- 5 million green jobs conserving 20% of our energy by 2015

- Cut 80% of our carbon emissions by 2050 and 30% by 2020

- Moratorium on coal fire power plants

- No new nukes

The day has already been featured on CNN, The Nation, and The NY Times - the latter in response to Thomas Friedman's article calling the Millennial generation, "Generation Q" for "Generation Quiet." View our responses here.

Register to come to Power Shift today and wee the video to see what Mr. T. has to say about it.
