Global Warming Activists as Inescapable as Global Warming this Weekend

Last week, we posted about the Global Climate Change Day of Action event taking place at Irvine Regional Park tomorrow. There'll be bells tolling, bikes biking, and a bunch of people forming a "350" for an aerial camera.

But there are more of these shindigs tomorrow all over the world, including in Orange County. It is the Global Day of Action, after all.

The most intriguing, at least for Jews: a "global climate healing Shabbat" at Temple Judea Laguna Hills.

More events after the jump.

Upcoming Events

There's a 350 Climate Action Festival in Newport. No specifics, other than that "local high school students" will be involved.

Mesa Verde United Methodist Church in Costa Mesa will have members of its "Peace, Environment and Justice Team," handing out 350 energy-saving light bulbs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tustin Presbyterian Church is going all out: "The program will include a new, specially written Caring for Creation Liturgy, responsive readings and some singing, all interspersed with the ringing of bells---a total of 350 rings. 350 drought-resistant plant seedlings will be given away. 350 little bird feeders made of seeds will be hung on a potted tree which will be donated to the City of Tustin. A handout that explains what 350 is all about will be given to those who participate or merely pass by."

At CalState Fullerton, Earth Science Professor Sean Chamberlin will be screening 11th Hour at noon and leading a discussion on climate change.

In Seal Beach, there'll be a beach cleanup.

And on San Clemente pier, people will be assembling for their own "350" aerial photo at 3:50 p.m. This one's our favorite for one reason: Afterwards, participants will be heading to the Fisherman's Restaurant for happy hour.
