Please help us share a message at noon on Earth Day, April 22nd. We’re using a new system called Thunderclap to coordinate, so a message will go out from everyone at noon on Earth Day. Here’s the catch: we need 500 people to sign up or the message won’t go. The message is: “For Earth Day, I commit to protect the climate. Take small actions that add up! #ActOnClimate http://epa.gov/climatechange/wycd/ “  We need your help, both to send the message and to invite your friends to send it, too. Join the effort at https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/10319-on-earth-day-actonclimate.
