Moving Planet September 21, 2011 : 1:08 PM

This coming weekend will host Moving Planet, “a day to put our demands for climate action into motion—marching, biking, skating—calling for the world to go beyond fossil fuels.”

My friend Bill McKibben, who is helping to organize the event, emailed:

"A few very cool actions are already underway -- our friends in Indonesia have already started on the 350-hour bike ride that will carry them across much of the nation, and in India the Naya Swara Yatra (New Independence Journey) bike team has leftNagpur bound for Mumbai with their message, “it’s time to move past fossil fuels”."

"Most places, though, people are still making last-minute plans: for the “human flood” of blue shirts across Cairo, for the parade of fuel-free floats across Cape Town, for the procession of the “Eco-lympic torch” across Rio de Janeiro via skateboard, foot, and pedal."
