Help save the EARTH!

Join in the action.
You may have to "copy" and "paste" the links into your browser. AD doesn't seem to allow direct linking from blogs for some reason. The link seems to work in the "repeat" of the message below in smaller print. I really don't get it. It's very frustrating.
|Over a billion people watched the Live Earth concerts, now we need action to save the climate--
On Saturday well over a billion people around the world watched the Live Earth concerts, and heard the call to action against climate change. Will anything come of it? That's down to us.
With seven concerts on seven continents, and thousands of parties Avaaz members organised all round the world, Live Earth helped launch the Climate Pledge -- seven things we all can do against the climate crisis. It's much more than a petition. It's a personal commitment, a challenge to politicians and corporations to wake up and do the right thing.
So drop everything, go to this link now and sign the Climate Pledge -- then tell seven friends:
You can also see pictures of our thousands of grassroots house parties and community events in 125 countries around the world - from China to the USA, Portugal to Peru, ordinary people looking one other in the eye and pledging together. 390,000 of us have already pressed the G8 to agree to start negotiating a global climate deal before the end of this year. Now this pledge sets a deadline for those talks, and describes how we will do our part.
Here's the text of the pledge. Just imagine what's possible if our friends and millions of others sign it and take action:
1. To demand that my country join an international treaty within the next 2 years that cuts global warming pollution by 90% in developed countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy earth;
2. To take personal action to help solve the climate crisis by reducing my own CO2 pollution as much as I can and offsetting the rest to become "carbon neutral;"
3. To fight for a moratorium on the construction of any new generating facility that burns coal without the capacity to safely trap and store the CO2;
4. To work for a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of my home, workplace, school, place of worship, and means of transportation;
5. To fight for laws and policies that expand the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on oil and coal;
6. To plant new trees and to join with others in preserving and protecting forests; and,
7. To buy from businesses and support leaders who share my commitment to solving the climate crisis and building a sustainable, just, and prosperous world for the 21st century.
So add your name now and send it to friends-- this week we could reach a million or more, then get started on the rest of the world!
Let's turn the moment into an unstoppable global movement. The climate crisis demands nothing less.
Paul, Graziela, Ricken, Ben, Hannah, Iain, Galit, and the entire Avaaz team
