Virtual activism for climate change

One of the themes of the blog this fall and winter will be the use of virtual activism to influence climate change policy. Here’s an example.

Stop Global Warming has just been launched by a high profile group of actors, journalists, politicians, musicians, and environmentalists. It is billed as the Live 8 for climate change. The site invites people to join a virtual march on Washington and to stir activity on college campuses. The site also blogs news on climate change, mostly from the US.

Mostly, the site serves as a platform to launch a benefit telecast, called Earth To America!, which TBS will broadcast on Sunday November, 20.

There’s even a bracelet, (made by ROOTS).
