Protest Planned for Bush Climate Summit. Call to action, Climate Emergency Council, September 22, 2000. "In a clearly manipulative move, George Bush is inviting top leaders from around the world to Washington, D.C. on Sept. 27th and 28th to officially convey his 'deep concern' about global warming. His proposed fix: more useless 'voluntary' measures and huge subsidies for 'clean coal' and nuclear energy. The event is clearly meant to undermine real international efforts now underway to achieve mandatory greenhouse gas cuts under the Kyoto process. Here's what you can do: Join other concerned Americans in protesting this cynical conference on September 28th from noon-1:00 p.m. We'll be holding a rally downtown next to the State Department, probably on Virginia Avenue between C and D Streets, NW (permit applied for). For now, simply save the date and register for the rally so we can keep you updated in the coming days. Top ministers and heads of state from around the world will be attending Bush's conference as well as a great concentration of national and international media. We need to show up and loudly proclaim our own message: George Bush doesn't speak for us! We want real climate action now!"

The truth about the climate crisis is an inconvenient one that means we are going to have to change the way we live our lives. Al Gore

. . . unless we advance beyond thinking only in terms of conservation and alternate sources and begin to think in terms of a carbon pie, we will have no chance to stop the rise in atmospheric CO2. Wallace S. Broecker
