Bike Bellingham is the 2011 local 350.org event

350.org has launched a 2011 project set for 9/24/2011, called "Moving Planet" with a website at www.moving-planet.org. In Bellingham, a project has risen up called "Bike Bellingham" which will feature family friendly bike rides from ten city schools that will converge at the Bellingham City Hall flag plaza for a climate rally/info fair from noon to 2 pm. There will also be an advanced ride from the plaza to the proposed Cherry Point Coal terminal leaving at 2 pm. If you would like more information, go to facebook.com/350bellingham. I will be posting additional information here as I learn more. However, there is a need for volunteers to help the day of the event, with pre-event postering canvassing for sponsors.

I received this in my inbox today - thought it worth sharing. It includes ideas for action leading up to 10-10-10.

Senators John Kerry (MA), Lindsey Graham (SC) and Joe Lieberman (CT) had committed to releasing the outline of their long-awaited climate bill yesterday. Instead, the release has been delayed due to ongoing partisan disputes in Congress.

Rumors of concessions to the fossil fuel industries in the Kerry-Graham-Lieberman bill -- especially the potential gutting of the Clean Air Act -- are deeply troubling. But we have remained engaged in working to improve it because the bill would put a cap on global warming pollution in this country for the first time. Every delay on this climate bill means less time to tackle the climate crisis and get our country on the road to recovery with an economy powered by clean, renewable energy.

May: Dirty Fuel Hunt: Find out who the biggest emitters of global warming pollution are in your area to highlight our current dependence on dirty energy;
June and July: Green Jobs Hunt: Help us map out the green economy in your community and collect success stories;
August: Congressional Recess Meetings: Visit your representatives' offices in your district and state to talk about clean energy;
September: Energy Efficiency Canvas: Talk to your neighbors about the millions of federal dollars available for greening projects and how they can benefit from them;
October: 10/10 Public Events: A day of work to build the green economy of the 21st century.
We'll keep you posted on the progress of the Senate climate bill. In the meantime, I hope you'll get involved in the many events and activities we have planned for the rest of the year.

Thanks for starting this group Rob. What a great cause and I feel the perfect venue to empower our community for action regarding global warming. I would love to see all the group's, or at the very least each community group participate. Did you register on the 350.org website? This may be a way to attract additional Whatcom residence to TW as well. I'll get with my "Goshen" group to start discussion on the event - and do some research on the 350.org site for planning/organization ideas for work parties. I will post these ideas as I hope will other members of TW.
