/*International Day of Climate Action, Oct. 24, 2009
*/*New Event: CFL Barnraising in Area 4.
Fight Climate Change on Oct. 24.*
 
HEET is holding barnraisings to weatherize the Cambridge Women's Center 
and the Wendell St. Co-op.  Wendell St. is *full*, and the Women's 
Center has a few more spaces.  We are adding a *Compact Fluorescent 
Lightbulb (CFL) distribution in the Area 4 neighborhood of Cambridge* - 
this will cut as much carbon as weatherizing homes! 
 
*Locations*
• CFL barnraising: meet at Margaret Fuller House, 71 Cherry St., Cambridge 
• All-women’s event at the Cambridge Women’s Center, weatherization at 
64 Wendell St.  Needham and Worcester are organizing simultaneous 
weatherization parties
 
*10 am to 2:30 pm – Work party and lunch

*International Day of Climate Action*
Join with people in over 100 countries around the world in demonstrating 
for action against climate change.  We must bring carbon dioxide levels 
back down below 350 parts per million – the level scientists have 
identified as the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere.  
At 3:50pm, there will be a rally at Christopher Columbus Park in 
downtown Boston and all are encouraged to join.
 
*Tell the government we must act now.*
*Get hands-on.*

Organized by the Home Energy Efficiency Team (HEET), a Cambridge-based 
co-op bringing neighbors together to
weatherize our homes and take the energy future into our own hands.
