Earth Day

Venus Demands Equal Time

Earth Day tomorrow as the other planets take a back seat. (Venus is that very bright thing in the west after sunst.) At least two campaigns planning events in Iowa City. The big deal of course is the Obama rally on the Pentacrest, but before that was scheduled teh Edwards camp had a One Corps event planned:
Join Johnson County One Corps as we distribute information sheets that help citizens calculate their carbon footprint and actions they can take to reduce it. We will also have a digest of the Edwards Energy Plan to pass out as we let people know about the EDWARDS plan to reduce carbon emissions.

Sunday, April 22, 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Iowa City Downtown Pedestrian Mall, corner of Washington and Dubuque Streets

Obama's also doing the direct green thing with a couple tree plantings, both 8 to 9:30:
1) Clear Creek Stabilization Effort. Directions: Take the Coral Ridge Ave. Exit off of I-80 and go south to 2nd St. (US hwy 6) stoplight. Turn right onto 2nd St. You will pass Lowe’s and then look for Deer Creek Road on your left. Left turn onto Deer Creek Road. Take the first right turn onto 340th St. 340th St. will dead end. The site is about .75 miles back on 340th St. off to your right along Clear Creek.

2) Meet in the parking lot of Grant Wood Elementary School: 1930 Lakeside. We’ll be planting at Southside Sycamore Trail off of Lakeside Drive, directly south of the Grant Wood School in Iowa City.

And if you're interested in other planets here's a sky calendar.
