Critical Mass: Climate Justice for Katrina Survivors - Ride this Friday

"Most notable as a major issue of concern is the nexus between climate change and the widespread prevalence of poverty in the world. The impacts of climate change will fall disproportionately upon developing countries and the poor persons within all countries, thereby exacerbating inequities in health status and access to adequate food, clean water and other resources."

- R. K. Pachauri, Ph.D, Chairman of the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
