From Sea to Rising Sea

This, from Patagonia: Across the country and around the globe, concern about global warming is on the rise. Research shows that polar bears must swim farther than ever to find food because Arctic ice is melting at an accelerated rate. The longer swims are even causing some bears to drown.
While the issue may feel as vast as the rising seas, making a difference depends on individuals taking action one by one. If you’re concerned about the effects of climate change, we invite you to join the Stop Global Warming Virtual March. The March is a non-political effort to bring all Americans together in one place – proving there is a vast consensus that global warming is here now and it’s time for our country to start addressing the problem.
Nearly 4,000 friends of Patagonia have already joined the March. For those already signed up, we thank you. Please spread the word and forward this email so your friends can follow your lead. If you haven’t joined the 400,000+ marchers yet, the time is now.
