Focus the Nation, a collective effort to find global warming solutions that’s being called the country’s largest ever national teach-in, kicks off tonight with a free web cast available to anyone who wants to participate.
The web cast will focus on the “2% Solution,” which refers to the need to decrease carbon emissions by two percent each year for the next 40 years to reach the goal scientists advocate of an 80 percent reduction by 2050. To view the virtual web cast, which begins at 8 p.m. EST, you’ll need to go the Earth Day Television website and download the Flash player.
Focus the Nation: Global Warming Solutions for America will continue on Thursday with hundreds of gatherings at college campuses across the country involving millions of students and faculty and at least 50 U.S. Congressional representatives including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), according to Focus the Nation.
