DANCE FOR THE CLIMATE

Cousins in Belgium sent this to me. . . .great scenes. . . justin

Subject: Dance for the climate! Video clip just released

Hi all,
Billy, Tony and I were a part of this dance crowd! It was an awesome scene with 14,000 people dancing on the beach to U2’s ‘Magnificent’ -- the largest event ever organised in Belgium to highlight the problem of global warming. The clip is meant to show the politicians attending the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen next month that the mass public does care and are counting on them to stop talking and start acting on climate change.

To understand the big picture, see also the original clip by Nic Balthazar last year: The Big Ask: Act Now! Campaign for a strong climate law.

Thank you,

billy, tony, sara

Thanks for the video. It's great to see the world waking up to the problems that our forfathers have created. Let's hope that we can all make a difference now and in the future.

Absolutely incredible.

Forefathers are forever creating problems. And today's generation will one day be someone else's forefathers.

Keep that in mind, kiddies. Hehe.

I'm still waiting for the U.S. to wake up and realize that fossil fuels need to go the way of the dinosaurs. Hydrogen, windpower, even nuclear, etc. etc. etc.

Gary's point is Fantastic.

I'll be MIA till Wednesday or so...
