Message from our backyard for 350.org’s International Day of Climate Action

This image and the two below represent a small scale contribution from our daughters to 350.org’s International Day of Climate Action from our little backyard in the central valley of California. In a region with limited opportunities for community action (only one event on the day in Fresno which we couldn’t make it to), and considerable cynicism from a largely conservative population, our daughters helped stage this visual message in our own backyard using autumn’s fallen leaves. The two older girls (9 and 4) are my daughters, and the youngest (1 yo) belongs to friends visiting us for the weekend, including the speaker for the seminar in the Biology colloquium last friday.

A more complete gallery is available on Flickr. And a whole lot more images from around the world may be seen at 350.org, and in their growing Flickr photoset, which includes the above pictures from our action! I haven’t seen any report from the Fresno State event yet, but will post a link here when that is available.
