People got to work yesterday in at least that many places around the world –the planet has never seen anything quite that widespread. Or quite thatbeautiful.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to visit 350.org to look through some of the thousands of pictures that we have managed to sort through so far. View the Slideshow at 350.org. And if you haven’t sent in your photos yet, now’s the time: here’s how to submit your photos to 350.org.
We’re looking forward to reading your reports over the next few weeks, andwe’ll be in touch with next steps and ideas. And in a few days, we’llsend along a video of a few of the day’s highlights that you can sharewith friends. But today is a day for you to mostly just feel good. We know we can’t build the movement we need on just one day–but 10/10/10made the foundation for our fight much larger and much stronger. Andyour message is getting out to media and politicians alike–we’vealready seen your work party photos in newspapers and on televisionshows all over the planet.
We hope 10/10/10 left youfeeling connected with people all across this beautiful globe. You arehelping shape the future of this planet, and we are deeply grateful foreverything you do. "Thank you" doesn’t seem nearly strong enough.
Bill McKibben for The 350.org Team
P.S. 10/10/10 isn’t the end of our work this year, and it’s vital that wekeep the pressure on world leaders in the coming days and weeks. Wecould use more phone calls to let politicians know we expect them tolead the fight on the climate crisis. Please take a few mintues today to make a quick call by using our easy call-in gadget–our leaders won’t hear our message if we don’t send it to them.
