Go Get’em

Fossil Fools Day




On April 1, young people will rise up to show the world that they refuse to fool around with climate changes and their future. The Energy Action Coalition is calling on communities across the United States and Canada to join this global day of action, aimed to show politicians and the fossil fuel industry that they mean business.

Events include rallies at gas stations, bike rides, clean-energy bus rides, clean-energy camps at dirty-energy sites and slide projections of solutions on the sides of dirty-energy factories—as well as spank the bank visits and takeovers of key offices and boardrooms.
