Not a normal day.

For some people on our email list, dawn has arrived on Saturday and Climate Impacts Day has already begun.

So this is a short reminder that 5/5 is no normal day — it’s the day that people around the world are coming together to Connect the Dots about climate change. I’ve just heard that the very first action, in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean where the sun rises first, was a great success: people there dove down for an underwater rally on their threatened coral reef. So even if it’s raining where you are, know that some people have already gotten entirely wet to sound the alarm!

Here’s the place to find the nearest action — and when you’re done go back to the computer to watch the images scroll in from around the planet (and make sure to upload your own photos).

This is like a giant seminar on the topic: What does global warming look like in its early stages? And if we can put a human face on climate change it will help immeasurably in all our campaigning in the years ahead. You’re that human face.

Thanks so much for heading out to help.
