We can't put off 
acting against 
climate change



Hardly a day goes by without another worrisome news headline about our changing climate. Just this past week, studies have been released showing that 2014 may have been the hottest year in recorded history, sea levels are rising much faster than anticipated, and human activity has pushed Earth beyond four of nine “planetary boundaries,” including carbon dioxide, and could cease to be a “safe operating space” for human beings. Even Pope Francis weighed in that he is convinced global warming is “mostly” man-made and that we need to take action to reduce our global emissions.

We can’t put it off any longer. We need to act! Join thousands of people throughout the state for the March for Real Climate Leadership in Oakland on Feb. 7. Sign up for the bus from SLO at marchforclimateleadership.org.
