My warmest and most heartfelt thanks to all who were there. The way the size of climate actions here in the Bay and throughout the US seem to be growing exponentially makes me feel like our movement may just reach a scale proportional to the crisis we face.

We are tasked with halting one of the greatest catastrophes our species and this planet have ever faced—a huge burden, but in a sense also a great honor. I am grateful to share it with so many other talented and energetic people.

One must ask: how many of us will there need to be before the Obama administration and other policymakers find the resolve to take the rapid, decisive action that is necessary on climate change? If not 5,000 in San Francisco and 50,000 in Washington, D.C., what about 10,000 here and 100,000 there? Or 20,000 and 200,000? Whatever the number is, that’s how big we need to get!!!
