Hello, all,

Because of too many plates spinning at once, I’m dropping down to one article-style post per week, at least through August. That will go up on Thursdays. On Tuesdays I will post a resource recommendation or a bit of news–a mini-post, if you like.

So, today’s mini-post is that Avaaz is organizing a global climate demonstration for November 29th, in order to provide a massive showing of political will ahead of the Paris climate conference in December. The event could also have a major effect on the American Presidential and Congressional elections, since by then those campaigns will be in full swing. And, as I’ve said before, the 2016 US elections may be among the most important ever held, since they will determine whether the US takes meaningful climate action or not.

So, get involved. Since this is a global event, the organizers are depending on local volunteers to host and publicize as many local events as possible on or around the 29th of November. This early in the process, they’re still looking for event hosts. So sign up to host an event, volunteer to help out at someone else’s event, or just agree to attend and bring all your friends.

Let’s do this.

I am a creative science writer. That is, most of my writing is creative rather than technical, but my topic is usually science. I enjoy explaining things and exploring ideas. I have one published novel and another on the way. I have a master's degree in Conservation Biology and I work full-time as a writer.
