    CLIMATE IMPACT DAY IS TOMORROW

    On May 5, Climate Impacts Day Will “Connect the Dots” Between Extreme Weather and Climate Change; At nearly 1,000 events in over 100 countries, people will highlight how climate change is effecting their lives in the here and now

    ”People around the world are preparing to join 350.org…[Saturday, May 5] for the first ever Climate Impacts Day, a global event designed to “connect the dots” between climate impacts, such as extreme weather events, and the broader climate crisis.

This March, a heatwave in the U.S. broke over 15,000 temperature records. “A recent Yale University poll in the U.S. found that Americans’ concern about climate change was increasing with more extreme weather and warmer temperatures…82 percent of Americans report that they personally experienced one or more types of extreme weather or a natural disaster in the past year…A new report by Media Matters for America found out that nightly news coverage on the major networks decreased 72% between 2009 and 2011. On the Sunday shows, 97% of the stories mentioning climate change were about politics in Washington, DC or on the campaign trail, not about extreme weather or recent scientific reports…”
