Walk against warming this Saturday
This Saturday 4 November, there will be a 'Walk Against Warming' in all major cities in Australia. The day is slated as the International Day of Action on Climate Change (though I don't know whom by).
If you are in Melbourne, as I am, the walk starts at 1pm at the Melbourne Town Hall, walking to Birrarung Marr park on the Yarra River.
More information, including details of what's happening in other Australian capital cities and regional centres, is on the website for Walk Against Warming, who've billed the event this way:
The Australian Government doesn't care about climate change.
We know you do.
The Government will only take real action on climate change and protect our kids' futures if you to tell them to. Join thousands of other Australians in a peaceful walk urging action on climate change now.
Get Up! Australia are also plugging the event as a major initiative to demonstrate public demand for stronger government action to reverse climate change and cut greenhouse gas emissions. Check out their criticism of the Howard government's poor response to global warming here.
