Climate March and Rally to support a call for a national “WWII-scale” mobilization to move American off fossil fuels and on to wind, water and solar energy will be held on the first Sundays of the month at 1 pm at Federal Building Plaza. Your attendance is requested.
Dear Fellow Democrat,
With all the outrageous behavior coming from President Trump, none is more dangerous than his assertion that climate change is a hoax and his appointments of climate change deniers to his cabinet.
We know that the science is real , as is the relationship between rising temperatures and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This reality has put civilization at risk. Just last month our very own Scripps Institute of Oceanography issued a report saying we humans alive on the planet today face a slight–but distinct–possibility of extinction! By mid-century the odds raise to a 20-30% possibility.
This is a warning that cannot go unheeded.
In the current political reality we do not believe ANYTHING other than people coming together to demand government action will be effective. That is why we are writing to ask for your help.
We ask that you join us on the first Sunday of the month and demand that the mobilization commence immediately and proceed at war time speed. The alternative presents an unthinkable future.
1pm at the Federal Building – 880 Front Street San Diego, CA 92101 Map

Climate Action Fast
San Diegans concerned about Climate Change will conduct a two-day fast at the Federal Building from 6 p.m., Friday, August 18th until 6 a.m., Monday, August 20th. A public rally at 6 p.m. Friday will kick off the event. The purpose of the event is to draw attention to the seriousness of the Climate Crisis and to demonstrate support for The Climate Mobilization.
The Climate Mobilization is a grassroots movement out of New York City calling for a World War-II scale national mobilization to transition the U.S. off of fossil fuels and onto Wind, Water and Solar Renewable Energy. The construction of a new energy system for America has been researched and computer modeled by Engineering Professor Mark Jacobson and his colleagues at Stanford University. Jacobson has partnered with actor Mark Ruffalo in the Solutions Project, dedicated to 100% renewable energy in America.
“We know that a new energy system is technologically possible, what is lacking is the political will,” said retired Superior Court Judge Robert C. Coates, chairman of the San Diego Climate Mobilization Coalition, a chapter of the New York organization and a sponsor of the fast.
“Our goal is to get millions of people peacefully demonstrating throughout the U.S. until Congress is willing to go for a new energy system,” said Nancy Casady, one of the organizers. “100% renewable is 100% possible,” Casady said.

Prevent Gun Violence
Tell your representative “California has the strongest gun laws in the country – giving us one of the lowest rates of gun death. I don’t want the weak gun laws from other state forced on California putting my family at risk of being shot – which would happen under HR 38. Vote NO on HR 38.” http://www.bradycampaignsd.org
