My Walk for All the Grandchildren, to confront the perils of climate change, started on March 8, 2009, in Galveston, Texas, and ended on August 29, in Rouses Point, NY. I thank all of you that followed this blog, sending me comments, and even joining me on my walk.
After my Walk I started a Carbon Addiction 10-Step Program to help us all decrease our carbon footprint.
Three blogs address different aspects of my efforts: ForAllTheGrandchildren covers the Walk and new Climate Walks; on my ClimateChangeChildren blog I talk with children who care about the planet and its climate; and 10stepCAP registers communication among the Carbon Addiction Program members.
My website will tell you more about these activites: climatewalk.homestead.com.

Tomorrow is the International Day of Climate Action. The Climate Walkers who helped me complete my Climate Walk from New Orleans to the Canadian border have organized with me a Walk from Allentown to Bethlehem as our participation in this important day that purports to show the world the significance or the number 350.
I hope to have some people signing up for the 10StepCAP tomorrow and then again on Sunday when I will be speaking at Lepoco, our local Peace Center, about my trip. So check back for the good news on Monday.
In the meantime, I'm pleased to record one more signee: GG in Bethlehem. He is our 8th member.
Okay, I thought I'd share some of the ways that my lifestyle right now are earth-friendly.
1. I don't own a car. 2. The apartment I moved into has an A/C, but I don't use it. 3. I don't own a microwave. 4. I have a very small refrigerator. 5. I don't have a dryer (I hang my clothes to dry). 6. I am more aware than ever of turning off lights and appliances when they are not in use. 7. I use reuse plastic grocery bags.
Now there are seven of us. My question at this time is whether to use first names, first and last names or just initials. TC said he was comfortable with having his name out there. What about the rest of you?
