Day 134 of our Green Year: Joining the WE Campaign

During the course of Our Green Year, Layla and I have joined many groups and initiatives that help the environment. Whether it is getting Free Rice for someone, buying carbon offsets and more, we think that this is one of the best ways that you can help the environment. Hence, we have come along to the We Campaign, which is a project that has been started by the Alliance for Climate Protection. This was founded by Nobel Prize winner Al Gore and the goal is to provide the alliance a movement that creates the political will to solve the climate crisis. The entire efforts of the campaign is to allow the United States, and by extension Canada, 100 percent electricity from renewable energy.

People are invited to join the campaign in order to get leaders to recognize climate change through having millions of people pushing for a solution by the end of 2008. People are encouraged to invite their friends to the campaign to help. It also offers help and solutions to getting organized in one's area of the country through hosting a meeting, training and recruiting people to join.

It should be mentioned that this is primary an initiative for the United States, but Layla and I feel that climate change is a global problem, and therefore it requires all of us to work together to help the environment, even in other countries.

It is a great solution and who knows, it may just spread to Canada! To see the success stories of the We Campaign, visit this site.
