Club, Allies Urge Global Warming Action in Sacto

Cazichellaliveearth

More than 100 climate action advocates gathered at Sacramento's funky Capitol Garage on July 7 to hear music, talks, and a video of Al Gore urging people to sign a pledge to reduce their carbon emissions. (More than three-quarters of the people in attendance did so.) "The Garage was a wonderful setting for this event," says Climate Project volunteer and Sierra Club regional director Carl Zichella, at right above with Phaedra Booth of Defenders of Wildlife (in pink), another reveler, and furry friend. "The windows open to the street, and large couches were placed outside for folks to enjoy the superb weather as Live Earth concerts ran on a great sound system on three flat screen TVs." The event was cosponsored by the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife, and local Climate Project volunteers who've been trained by Gore to deliver the Inconvenient Truth slide show. A continually running slide program informed people what actions they could take to help curb global warming, and the event featured a raffle, a trivia contest, and a polar bear who appealed to kids and adults alike for immediate action to help protect Arctic wildlife. Volunteers from local organizations lined the street outside with information tables, and there were activities aplenty for kids. "Who knew saving the earth could be so much fun," says Zichella.
