I’m all over Treehugger today. Go figure.

Anyway, TH brings news of a massive worldwide series of demonstrations that, for reasons unfathomable, I wasn’t aware of.

Apparently, on Dec. 3 — that’s this Saturday! — to coincide with the COP MOP talks in Montreal, groups in over 30 countries around the world are demonstrating:

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free.

These demonstrations demand that the USA and Australia ratify the Kyoto Protocol immediately, and that the entire world community move as rapidly as possible to a stronger emissions reductions treaty that will be both equitable and effective in stabilising ‘greenhouse’ gases and preventing dangerous climate change.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

I tend to think it’s a mistake for enviros to focus so obsessively on Kyoto, but as a symbolic matter it’s hard to argue against focusing attention on U.S. and Australian intransigence.

So go out and demonstrate on Saturday!
