The Rising Tide Road Show's Climate Action Tour is coming to Western  
Massachusetts! Performances will be May 11th at 7 p.m. at Food for Thought 
Books in downtown Amherst and May 12th at noon on the front steps of the 
Unitarian Universalist Church between City Hall and Pulaski Park.

Rising Tide North America is traveling throughout the nation in a vegetable 
oil powered bus talking with communities about  the impacts of climate 
change and what can be done to fight it. Using  music, theater, and 
multimedia presentations, the Climate Action Tour will cover a wide range of 
topics including: an overview of how climate change is impacting the human 
and natural world; the new coal rush; debunking false solutions to climate 
change; international  opposition to the fossil fuel industry; environmental 
justice; and  creative actions communities can take.

Rising Tide North America is part of an international network dedicated to 
fighting the root causes of climate change. In the past year Rising Tide 
North America has organized civil disobedience against a coal power plant; a 
nationwide bike ride on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina; and a 
grassroots counter-summit to the G8 climate talks in Mexico City. See 
http://risingtidenorthamerica.org for more information.

Local sponsors of the event include NOFA- Northeast Organic Farming  
Association, Citizens Awareness Network, Pedal People, Coop Power, The  
Enviro Show, The Bicycle Kitchen, Earthlands, The Montview Neighborhood 
Farm, Smith College Students for Social Justice and Institutional Change and 
Mass Bike-Pioneer Valley Chapter.

Ruthy Woodring from Pedal People, a Northampton  based bicycle powered 
hauling service, says: "We can slow climate change but it's going to take 
fun hard work, like  bicycling."  Pedal power, real conservation, lifestyle 
change, direct action, all these and more will be necessary to effectively 
confront the climate crisis. The Rising Tide Road Show's Climate Action Tour 
will help make that possible. Events are family friendly and accessible.
