Dear Friends,

This week the Virtual March grew to over 500,000 marchers!  The movement to 
stop global warming is here, now and growing louder each day. The diversity of 
our new partners goes to show that we are all part of this problem, and we all 
need to be part of the solution.  New partners include Pastor Tri Robinson, pop 
culture designer Paul Frank, Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, The Los Angeles 
Zoo, Me&Ro Jewelry, and rock band Guster. 
Thanks to the Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo music festivals, and to marcher Bon 
Jovi, for encouraging music fans this summer to join the Virtual March.
While the Virtual March continues to grow during the fall, the icon of the 
season – changing leaves – is being threatened by global warming. Click here to 
read more about global warming's threat to New England's rich autumn colours. 
Another surprising impact from global warming is the recent declining pumpkin 
crop.  The severe rains of the spring and extreme heat of the summer has 
directly reduced the number of pumpkins grown in the United States.  One farmer 
reports that his normal crop of 70 tons of pumpkins shrunk to only 12 tons this 
season.   Now we are talking about our Halloween jack-o-lanterns and 
Thanksgiving dessert.
By marching, you have taken the first step to be part of the movement to stop 
global warming, but perhaps you are asking, "What else can I do?" Here are a 
few action tips for the fall:

thing. The solution is you!
