This saturday, Decemeber 3rd is the International Day of Action on Global Warming.

Why does this matter to you?? According to some predictions for the effect of climate change here in Boston, the sea level will rise two to three feet over the next 100 years. This is big news for MIT; at that level a large storm will push floodwater over the dam and the Charles River will flood its banks--right into MIT's campus.
