So we made it! After a total of 34+ hours of driving (and the unfortunate carbon footprint that goes with it), we have completed our journey to DC to participate in the largest climate rally in the history of the United States of America. It was incredible. I have never in my life been around more people who all care about the Earth. Everybody was there for one thing: to tell Obama to shut down the KeystoneXL pipeline. Bill McKibben, 350.org co-founder, Mike Brune, Sierra Club executive Director, Van Jones, Obama's former green jobs advisor, and many other very inspirational speakers spoke on stage before we marched over to Obama's place, complete with chants, picket signs, harlem shakes, and dance circles.
Here's a few photos from the weekend. More soon to come.
