Tck Tck Tck!

I left the Unstuffed Homestead on Saturday and headed to the Hill for the 350 International Day of Climate Action.
Here are some pics I took.

The rain didn't stop tons of people from filling the hill.

The Power Shift youth performed a really fun choreographed chant. "Oooh, it's getting hot in here. There's too much carbon in the atmosphere! Take action, take action and get some satisfaction!"

Hearing Paul Hogarth speaking about cycling across Canada with his family to raise awareness for climate change was really inspirational.

There's lots more pics here.

Yay! I've been looking online since Sat for a good video of the Tck, Tck, Tck. I love that you can see us getting more coordinated the more we do it. :)

Fun day! So great to see so many folks out despite the rain.

Thanks for the pics and vid. It is great to see what happened in other cities.

Great pictures. I just wish the Hill had been actually filled. If we only had one ten thousand of those youth who went to see the Jonas Brothers...

I was pretty impressed with the turnout and the enthusiasm of the people. I wish there was a video of the Samba Ottawa drummers. That was really cool!

Ha! arbor del h. we posted our comments at the exact same time. We are like so..ahem 'N Sync.

Yes, it would have been really awesome if we had indeed filled the hill, but looking at pics from other events in different locations, I think Ottawa might come out ahead in the numbers game.

But oh, if we could harness the the numbers and hormones of boy band fans we could probably change the political system and find an alternative energy source!
Hmm...Somebody should be working on this!
