Let’s not allow the momentum from cleaning up after Superstorm Sandy to dissipate. Let’s use it as a catalyst to turn 350.org into a truly mass movement.

Refuse to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. Then, insist that Congress end subsidies to fossil fuel corporations and put a price on carbon.
What do you think will prompt Obama to take action? More in upcoming posts about the movement that is building.
