Training in the UK March 27, 2007 : 1:15 PM

I've spent the last two and a half days in Cambridge, England training 200 leaders and grassroots activists from to give my slide show throughout the United Kingdom. The enthusiasm here is incredible and the level of energy these men and women are bringing to this challenge is inspiring. Business leaders, teachers, people from the faith community, environmental activists, eminent climate scientists an others have become a part of this effort to spread the message about the climate crisis and the solutions to it.

I have learned a great deal from them and have been inspired by them and can tell you that they are starting now to motivate people to ratchet up the commitment and urgency that must be brought to solving the climate crisis.

Two weeks from now, I will train another 150 people in Nashville, and that will bring the total trained in the US to more than 1000. When the political system is paralyzed is when we have to go to the grassroots level. Thank you again for being an essential part of this whole effort.
