1. Step It Up Day Report

Thanks to everyone who came out in the dank, cold wind and rain Saturday for our Step It Up Day Rally and bike path clean-up! We hauled a number of bags of trash away and demonstrated to fight Global Climate Change on the Gerald Solomon Bridge, which I am sure gave him heartburn, wherever he is. Our event was featured on DFA's Blog For America this evening: There are more pictures by John Davis at and The Step It Up site also allows you to tell members of Congress about our event.

Thanks to Jim McAndrew for inspiration, for printing the great banners and also promoting a very successful event at the Garnet Hill Lodge in North Creek.

We also got a small but nice picture in the Post Star, but, unfortunately, no article. For this I have to take full responsibility: I failed to invite a pair movie stars like Saratoga did! What was I thinking! My bad, as the saying goes. Next time I promise to do better. By the way, if any of you happen to know a movie star or two, do let me know, would you?

2. Circular Letter On Climate Change

The Circular Letter On Climate Change we passed at our April meeting was also well received by our national leadership in Burlington and it was immediately featured on Blog For America as well:

4. Friday Night Film Fest

The Rockhill Bakehouse Cafe's Friday Night Progressive Film Fest continues at 7:30 with what may be the most important film of our time, Oscar winning--

Apr 20 AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH (2006) Davis Guggenheim 96 min.
Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced. A catastrophe we have helped create. If that sounds like a recipe for serious gloom and doom -- think again. AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH offers a passionate and inspirational look at one man’s commitment to expose the myths and misconceptions that surround global warming. That man is former Vice President Al Gore, who, in the wake of defeat in the 2000 election, re-set the course of his life to focus on an all-out effort to help save the planet from irrevocable change. In this eye-opening and poignant portrait of Gore and his “traveling global warming show,”
