Rising Tide North America and its allies are calling for a day of action
against the fossil fuel industry on April 1st 2009...FOSSIL FOOLS DAY!

Confronted with droughts, extreme weather, poisoned waterways and food
shortages the fools at the head of the fossil fuel empire continue to
plunder the earth, with the governments as court jesters at their side.

A powerful vibrant climate justice movement is emerging world-wide. Coal
plants are being shut down. Mountaintop removal is being challenged. Big
oil in Canada and other parts of the world are feeling the effects of a
new consciousness around global warming. Thousands are in the streets
pushing the limits.

But more needs to happen. It's time we ask ourselves, how serious are we
about stopping climate change?

Climate change threatens our very survival, and weather chaos is
increasingly upon on us - it is up to us to launch a global uprising
against the fossil fuel industry.

Your good fight is coming soon, step right up! On April 1st, 2009 join
thousands of people around the world and begin to unmask and disarm the
fossil fuel empire. We would be foolish to act otherwise.

For over a century, they have been fooling with our lives. From oil
extraction to coal combustion they have poisoned our air, polluted our
water and ruined our climate. Now, we're going to unmask these dangerous
jesters.

Target a local fossil fool - See the clowns investing in coal? The
carbon offset contortionist or the oily strong man? - and join with
thousands around the world in taking one step closer to dismantling the
fossil fuel industry.

Find a fossil fool in your community and pull a prank that packs a
punch.
