********Aug 3: Rally at the Rio: Climate Change Action Event - 
Albuquerque**, NM
********10am-12pm 2700 Central Ave SW, Albuquerque 87104. At the bike 
trailhead/park at NW corner West Tingley Dr. Parking at the BioPark.

New Mexico's largest ever mass action event on Climate Change. 
Participants will assemble on the Bosque Bike Path "trailhead park" on 
the northeast side of the bridge, adjacent to Biopark parking lot, for a 
rally with speakers and music. The group will then walk up onto the 
bridge with signs and fill the sidewalks on both sides of the bridge, 
with speakers at the park first, and a huge crowd with 100 painted 
signs, occupying both sides of the Rio Grande Bridge at Central, 
demanding action on climate change.

This collaborative local leaders, activists, and community organizations 
intends to illustrate the message that human-caused climate change must 
be addressed immediately. The science stopped being seriously debatable 
a long time ago. Early effects we are experiencing in Albuquerque (just 
as everywhere) are already illustrating even more severe climate 
responses than the models predicted: extended heat waves, unprecedented 
ice sheet melting and sea level rise, and a dramatic increase in severe 
weather events around the globe. New Mexico is suffering from severe, 
extended drought related to climate change that is devastating local 
ecosystems and putting extreme stress on agriculture. We know what we 
need to do. We have proven commercial-scale technologies that can remove 
most of the carbon pollution from our economy. We have the regulatory 
tools to make this transition happen at costs that consumers and 
businesses can afford -- in fact, greenhouse gas limits would likely 
have a positive impact on our economy. Yet despite all this, and despite 
the fact that almost every other advanced industrial nation has taken up 
the challenge of limiting greenhouse gas emissions, action is stalled in 
the U.S.

This rally aims to put the issue back into the public spotlight with a 
message that we have the moral obligation to deal with the problem now - 
organizing to remind our fellow citizens that they need to be concerned 
about this issue, or else be part of a slow-moving catastrophe. Rally to 
demand that the news media provide coverage of climate change 
commensurate with the magnitude of the problem, and to move away from 
the formulation that has been foisted by opponents that this is "just 
another political dispute" with two differing opinions.

This action will be one of many across the U.S. this long, hot summer 
seeking to elevate the issue. Having reached out to invite literally 
thousands of New Mexicans, Rally at the Rio expects a big turnout.
