Anyone going to the Climate Rally in DC?

If you haven't heard, the globe is warming. And if you haven't heard, there will be a big rally in support of climate legislation in Washington Sunday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on the National Mall.

Sponsors at the Earth Day Network are aiming for a rally like the one on the first Earth Day 40 years ago when 20 million people came out in support of a cleaner and healthier planet.

This year, there will be speakers including Rev. Jesse Jackson, the film director James Cameron, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Olympic gold medalist Billy Demong, producer Trudie Styler, author Margaret Atwood, NFL player and television personality Dhani Jones and environmental photographer Sebastian Copeland.

There will also be live music from Sting, John Legend, The Roots, Jimmy Cliff, Passion Pit, Bob Weir, Willie Colón, Joss Stone, Robert Randolph, Patrick Stump, Mavis Staples, Booker T, Honor Society and Tao Rodriguez-Seeger.

The sponsors would like you to RSVP (right side of page). And if you can't go, you can watch a live stream at www.EarthDay.org. There are also some free buses, including one from Baltimore, if you need. They will go to RFK Stadium and you can take the Metro or a shuttle from there. If you drive, they'd like you to park at RFK.
