If you’re concerned about climate change, here’s your chance to let the next Senator of California know. The Center for Biological Diversity is planning a “keep the heat on the Senate” event on Wednesday, September 1, at the site of a debate between senatorial candidates Barbara Boxer and Carly Fiorina in Moraga.

Gather with signs such as “Protect the Clean Air Act” or “350 is the limit” at 6:00 pm at Saint Mary’s College, Lefevre Theatre, 1928 Saint Mary’s Road. A carpool will run from Orinda BART at 5:30. If you want a ride, contact (Unless you have a ticket to the debate, you won’t be able to get in—the plan is simply to stand outside with signs as the candidates, audience and media file in). You can get a ride back to Orinda BART anytime after 7 pm.

We need strong climate legislation and we need it fast.  Putting up solar panels and cutting your carbon footprint is a great first step, but we need to enact national laws that will motivate the other  115 million households to do the same.
