Ellen Page: 350.org's 10/10/10 Global Work Day Will Show Politicians That We Can Address The Climate Change Crisis (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In this video from 350.org, actress Ellen Page speaks out about the importance of joining up on 10/10/10 for the organization's "Global Work Day" to implement climate change solutions in your community.

Page cites this summer's floods in Pakistan and the Gulf oil spill as evidence for the need to tackle the climate change crisis directly and reduce dependence on dirty energy, and that the solution begins at the local level.

"I'm tired of waiting around and listening to politicians argue. They need to stop talking and start working," Page says. And she thinks the Global Work Party on October 10 is the perfect way to show them how.

10/10/10 is a day to meet up with others in your community and work toward different climate change solutions. For example, Page mentions that in Pakistan, women will be teaching how to use solar stoves, and sumo wrestlers in Japan will be biking to practice.

Go to 350.org to find events in your area, or organize your own. They even have plenty of ideas to help get you started.

"We want to send a clear message to our politicians: We're getting to work, so what about you?"
