There is a tragic divide between movements that should consolidate.

1.  economic injustice
2.  peak oil and other resources (clean fresh water, precious minerals)
3.  environmental pollution (including CO2 the major greenhouse gas causing climate change, and other emissions creating toxic ozone)

I call it the trifucta.

YES!  The occupywallstreet people should go and connect with the moving planet people.

The root cause of all these converging catastrophes is the same:

corporate profits trumping the health and ultimately survival of human and other species.

Let's create a united front.  You young people are the ones who will suffer if we don't.

Dear friends,

On Saturday, September 24th, something big is happening in Manhattan.

This event is part of the worldwide Moving Planet day of climate action, and is just one of thousands happening around the world. Some of the actions this year are shaping up to be really huge and you are fortunate to live near to one of the really big planned actions. You won’t want to miss it.

WHERE: Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, on 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues

WHEN: 2pm

WHAT: In this great opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our movement to both US and world leaders we will rally at United Nations' Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan. We'll be joined by Vice President Hassan of the Maldives, top climate scientist Dr. James Hansen, a delegation of indigenous leaders from around the world, and local climate leaders like Colin Beavan ("No Impact Man").

I hope you can make it on Saturday! Together, we’ll help move the planet away from fossil fuels.

See you out there!

350.org is building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. Our online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organizers in over 188 countries. You can join 350.org on Facebook by becoming a fan of our page at facebook.com/350org and follow us on twitter by visiting twitter.com/350.

What is 350?
350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in "parts per million" (ppm), so 350ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. To get there, we need a different kind of PPM–a "people powered movement" that is made of people like you in every corner of the planet.
