Al Gore's new book "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis" is now on sale! Following up on his wildly successful 2006 book "An Inconvenient Truth," "Our Choice" goes into more detail about the solutions we can pursue to prevent the irreversible damage to our planet, as opposed to just making us aware of the problem.
The 1Sky team is organizing a welcome ceremony President-elect Obama will never forget.
The U.S presidential election is approaching and to make the right choice we must know all the information…especially on "green" issues!
We hope you'll join us and more than 60 million others this October 17th to October 19th and stand up to draw attention to the UN Millennium Development Goals.
Last year, 43 million people took part and stood up and took action around the world to bring attention to the Art of Living Foundation’s Millennium Development Goals, which are to:
- eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
- achieve universal primary education
- promote gender equality & empower women
- reduce child mortality
- improve maternal health
- combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
- ensure environmental sustainability
- global partnerships for development

Live Earth India: Commitment to Green
Power Vote, organized by the Energy Action Coalition, is an upbeat and indomitable organization that encourages the youth to make their voices heard when it comes to the global climate crisis… and we love it!
This week is Power Vote Challenge Week.
The United States has contributed significantly to global warming and in recent years has done very little to stop it. Now it's your chance to demand that the next U.S. president commits to rising to the challenge of the climate crisis.
The U.S. presidential election is only weeks away. Are you registered to vote in your state?
Check out Rock the Vote’s calendar to find out your state's deadline to register and see if you still have time to step up and have a say in the upcoming election.
Join Live Earth in support of the Art of Living Foundation/ Stand Up Take Action's Mission Green Earth Campaign. Eight years ago, at the Millennium Summit, 189 country heads committed to work together “to build a safer, more prosperous and equitable world for all by 2015.” Mission Green Earth is one program in support of the seventh goal of the campaign: to ensure environmental sustainability.
This year, participants can show their support by joining Mission Green Earth in planting trees EVERYWHERE. The campaign is already active in India and in 88 other countries, and has a goal of planting 100 million trees before October 16th. It is said that the average person utilizes the oxygen of 16 trees to survive his/ her lifespan. Let’s work together and take action between now and October 16th to plant 100 million native, locally appropriate trees to support environmental sustainability.
