If there's ONE thing you must do today on EARTH DAY, it's sign up for this virtual march to stop global warming. This campaign has great potential to be huge and your participation will be invaluable. Join me on this march!
People who are suckers for big names (maybe I'm one of these people, maybe I'm not) read on.
Laurie David is the Founder of this campaign:
...and is also the fortunate wife of Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld creator). I had to include this even though it's only marginally relevant:
[Q asked to Laurie David] Your husband made a hilarious speech at an NRDC event in which he described his early impressions of you as "a materialistic, narcissistic, superficial, bosomy woman from Long Island ... But then after a few short months I began to sense that something had changed. She started peppering her conversation with words like ozone layer, sustainable forestry, and toxic runoff ... what was now all too painfully obvious was that I, Larry David, the shallowest man in the world, had married an environmentalist." - Grist Magazine interview
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a long-time inspirational environmental leader and a leader on this march:
John McCain, the Senator everyone loves! is also signed up and leading the march!
And finally, the biggest name in my book...my hardworking heartthrob Jonah Peretti. I went to bed at 3 am as Jonah and Laurie were on the phone putting finishing touches on the site and I awoke at 7 am to Jonah's "it's launched!!"
The earth thanks you!
