Get ready for Fossil Fools Day

News & Politics

As I wrote earlier this week, it seems like at long last we're seeing some momentum in this country for fighting global warming. So it's an ideal time for a new campaign from the Energy Action Network, a coalition of 25 enviromental organizations working to end our oil addiction.

Here's the scoop on "Fossil Fools Day":

This Saturday, April 1st marks the 3rd annual Fossil Fools Day, highlighting the devastating effects of our addiction to oil and celebrating clean energy and transportation alternatives. A powerful youth movement, environmental, human rights and peace activists will host events at college campuses, car dealerships and government buildings throughout the United States, Canada and England. Creative actions will confront educators, lawmakers and business leaders who are ignoring the growing popular movement to end the downward spiral of oil wars, air pollution and global warming caused by our oil addiction.
There are currently more than 80 actions planned across the country. To find one near you, visit EAN's handy map page.
