As the penguins dance on their cinder block ice caps, the Wisconsin rally for climate solutions will rock Monument Square in Racine, WI on the largest climate action this world has ever seen.
Starting at 2pm, high schools from all across Racine will bring the most important number to our environment to the center of the square: 350. Wisconsin has tremendous opportunity to contribute to renewable and sustainable energy sources & lifestyles. Music will ring out and speakers will inspire the crowds that gather to share what forward-moving steps are being taken here in Racine and around the state to bring the level of carbon in our atmosphere DOWN from the current 390ppm to the essential 350ppm.
Students have constructed a soap box stage where Representative Corey Mason (http://www.legis.state.wi.us/w3asp/contact/legislatorpages.aspx?house=Assembly&district=62), Expedition Copenhagen Youth Delegate Jamie Racine and high school representatives will address the masses. Local cafe Circa Celeste will provide local, organic coffee and teas to keep the crowds warm while local youth ignite the passion of all that attend.
Check out what some of the youth of Racine have to say about 350 and our environment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvgCsQlSKWY
